The first project is a card that is for the newest ADFD challenge. The challenge is to "Use Newsprint." I used the new Aloha Blooms image, and paired it with a sentiment from Ginger's House.
Oh, I just love her. I had a fun time coloring her...I experimented with some new combinations of skin tones. I worked with alcohol markers and watercolor markers, plus, the background was done in watercolors.
I also played with a brand new stencil that I got from Stencil Girl. It's called "Web" and I love it. I used 3 colors of ink (applied via stencil brush), ad then embossed it with clear powder.
Sorry that the color is way off in this photo. For my "newsprint" element, I found this page in a parcel I had gotten from a friend a long time ago. I thought the words were pretty great with this image. I am entering this card in the Sweet Stampin' Challenge. Their challenge is "Anything but Birthday." Also, in the Crafty Calendar Challenge "Sunshine and Showers).
This week at Wicked Wednesday, the challenge is "Things with Wings." Well, with my winnings from the ADFD challenge, I got several fairies....fairies are a bit of an obsession of mine. The fairy I used on this ATC is my favorite A Day for Daisies image. It just...speaks to me. I can't tell you how happy just looking at this sweet little fairy makes me. I have big plans for this sweetie, so be prepared to see this Little Nymph (so aptly named) a lot.
I colored the image with my 2 types of markers, and again, I watercolored the background. I used a beautiful woodgrained stamp that I have had in my stash for years. It's a favorite of mine.
The "sit" I added was made with a Just Rite alpha stamp. Seriously, I just love this image. I am also going to enter this ATC in the new Pumpkin Spice challenge, which is "Nature." Well, I am off to create something else! Thank you for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
