November Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop!

Hello out there in Bloggyland! It's the last Wednesday of the month, so it's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, snce so many of us have been busying ourselves in the kitchen with Thanksgiving (at least, here in the USA), I decided to give us a recipe challenge. It's pretty simple.
3 Patterned Papers
2 Bombshell Stamps
1 Piece of Ribbon
Simple right? Here's what I came up with, using Rose's Portrait.

I really love this image. It's so easy to make things look pretty with her. I used watercolor markers, Spectrum Noirs, and Copics to color her in. Here's a close up.

I used some pop dots on the extra rose. And how fabulous is that mesh ribbon?! I found it in the Christmas dept. at Michaels.

So you have 14 glorious stops in this hop, so I suggest you get going! Please make sure you leave a little love for everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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!
