Green: Coloring with It & Feeling It

Ever have one of those weeks? Those weeks that can be written off a s a complete bust? That's how my week has been. I have the flu. And it sucks. I was so ahead with what I needed to do for my projects, and now I am miserably behind. And I still feel terrible. Thankfully, I had my project for this week's Dilly Beans challenge all set to go well before I got kicked in the ass with this horrid sickness. Allow me to share with you....."Green," our challenge for the week.

This is Nutmeg. And I think she's awesome. I actually had some extra moments, and my hands were feeling pretty good, so I broke out my beloved colored pencils. It's been forever since I've worked with them.

I am totally digging her hair. Oh. And I would like to point out, then when you visit the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog today, you will see the card I blogged about last week. Like a dummy, I switched what I posted....both cards worked for both challenges. And I inadvertently switched them. I can't even blame that on the flu! Wanna see the other card? Visit THIS post. 

Would you like to play along? Perhaps win some fabulous Dilly Beans images of your own? Then please visit the Challenge Blog. And please leave some love for the rest of the DT. They made some fabulous green creations this week. Thanks 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!
