Day 25 of 31: Dilly Beans Halloween Week 4

Greetings and holy cow! Blogger seriously doesn't like me today! I actually had my post pre-posted on Thursday...I was totally ahead of the game! But the gosh darn thing never saved! I am so sorry for posting this late everyone. I was out all day so I never noticed. Thank you for letting me know, Wendy!!!

Ok, so it's Friday, so I have a new Dilly Beans project for you. The theme again this week is Halloween...so no excuses for not playing along! ;)

Isn't she a cutie? I love her green skin. I colored her with Spectrum Noirs. Her top is washi tape.

The green border is actually the negative space from a Martha Stewart punch. I love her punches. I really do.


My sentiment is from Tiddly Inks. And how FABULOUS is the paper I found to match her eye?! Totally unplanned! It's from DCWV. Ok....since I am already late, and totally frustrated, I am off! Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, listed in my sidebar. Have a creeptastic day!

We missed you! I knew you had not gone far. Yes, she is delightful.
Amazing how well the background paper compliments her.

I love you using the "negative space" of the punch.

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!
