Day 5 of 12 Days of Creepmas: Got Mistletoe?

Hello! It's Day 5 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. Today, I have a card featuring a Dilly Beans image. It's "Disturbed Snowman #276." I love this guy!

Isn't he great? As crazy as he looks, he has a huge heart. I made this a very simple card...using only 3 strips of paper and an Inkadinkado sentiment.

I colored the snowman using watercolors. And I inked around the edges of him and the card itself using Distress Inks. I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs.

I hoe you like my simple little card! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers. They are all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic 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!
