Ace of Swords and Playing Catch Up

Greetings, and Happy Mother's Day!I have 2 projects to share with you today. The first is an ATC for the latest Wicked Wednesday challenge, and the other is a card for the new Movie Magic Monthly challenge. Yeah...I am a couple of days late with posting that one. Sorry! Life really got in the way this week.

I am making more and more ATC's lately, as I sometimes only have time to make something teeny. And I think I am getting better at them! The Wicked Wednesday challenge this week is Tarot Symbols. I thought this Rick St. Dennis image, called Monument was just perfect for the Ace of Swords.

The Ace of Swords symbolizes the beginning of a conquest that will eventually be successful. Obviously,the bearer of this sword was successful. I thought that this card was a good one for me to make, as i am looking to be more successful in some of my conquests. Hopefully, the energy I put into it will help me. The image is colored with alcohol inks, and I used a Stencil Girl stencil for my background.

The newest Movie Magic Monthly challenge is Star Wars vs. Star Trek. What a fabulous challenge, right? Hopefully, if things go my way...I will have several projects to share with you this month, as I love both Star Wars and Star Trek. I used this image from Mayzy Art. Isn't it great?

I used alcohol markers for this image as well. And look! I managed to find Star Wars paper!

I will be giving this card to my Mom today, as she is a H-U-G-E Star Wars fan. Well, anything Sci-Fi in general....but the Wars and the Trek especially. I have something else to share with you....but it's a creation by my littlest sister, Monica.

Monica has a company called Subtle Nerd. If you love geekery-ware from video games, movies, and TV shows....but you don't want it to scream...then my sister's creations are for you. She makes amazing jewelry, and is starting to create sick dresses. Show off your inner geek....subtly. So this is one of her newest creations, and I freaking love it. Check out the beautiful Blue Goldstone beads she used! Check out her stuff. You'll love it. She does custom work s well. HERE is her main website.
I hope you like the offerings I have shared with you today. 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!
