Day 9 of 31 Days: Chloe Bell

Hello, and welcome to day 9 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! I am sharing a Dilly Beans card with you today. I made it a couple of weeks ago, and I can't bear to let it sit unseen anymore!

This is Chloe Belle. Chloe Belle Framed (#454) to be exact. Isn't she adorable? In a creepy kind of way. I think the next time I color her, her skin will be more sallow. This time around, I used watercolor markers and Copics. I loved coloring her because she was fast! I got it done in no time. Don't get me wrong, I love coloring detailed images, but sometimes, you just need to get something done now. And she was perfect for that.

The look on Chloe Belle's face reminds me very much of my daughter. Hmmm...maybe I'll color the image to look more like her next time!

I sprayed my background with a couple colors of Glimmer Mist, and a web Glimmer Screen. A few pieces of accent paper, that fabulous bow, and this baby was done. This version is uber Halloweenie, but done in a different color scheme, she could be used for pretty much anything!
Now hop along! The entire list of Wicked Bloggers is posted on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have an fang-tastic day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.
