Day 7 of 31 Days: "Me & Pops"

Greetings and salutations! I's Day 7 of.... Wait! It's day 7 already?! This is the ONLY thing I dislike about doing the 31 Days...It's the constant reminder of how quickly the month flies because we always say which day it is. But I digress... It's Day 7 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. I decided to use one of the newest Dilly Beans image, "Me & Pops."

I love these guys! Aren't they great?  This is another example of a totally fun image to color. And can probably use the "C" word for 'em too. But shhhh! I don't want people to start thinking I'm losing my edge with 2 "cute" projects.

I used watercolor paints on this image. It felt wonderful to paint. I love painting...

I used a bit of embossing powder to add some shimmer and texture to the card.

My sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Have you enjoyed the 1st week of October? Well, there is certainly more to enjoy! To visit all of the Wicked loggers, check out my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

I love the image you chose - it's edgy enough to allow a little cuteness. Your painting skills are awesome - I adore watercolors but never brave enough to do it!

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!
