Day 29 of 31 Days: Skellie ATC

Hello! Today is a very special day for me... It's my Anniversary! 8 years ago today I married my wonderful husband, in the most magical celebration you could imagine. I am a very lucky lady.

For my project, I made an ATC using a Dilly Beans image called Skull, Pumpkin and Candy #471. I colored the image with watercolors.

My sentiment is from Smeared Ink. It's just a cute, simple ATC. It's all about the watercolors here.

I am hoping to have my last couple of posts written by tomorrow morning......I'm in NY, and Hurricane Sandy is looming. Hopefully we will not lose power. For those of you also on the East Coast, stay safe!!! Now off you go! Off to hop to the rest of the Wicked Bloggers. They are listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

Fang-tastic ATC. I love the bright colors. Stay safe, I know what's it like dealing with hurricanes every year in Florida. Thank you for sharing your artwork.
Be safe yourself.

Lovely pic of you and your husband, isn't that one of your wedding photos?

BTW another very cute card. Love the way the pumpkin matches the candy corn.

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
