Day 4 of 12 Days of Creepmas: With Dilly Beans

Greetings! Welcome to Day 4 of the Smeared & Smudged 12 Days of Creepmas. Yesterday, I should have posted a project for Dilly Beans, but I am so behind schedule, that I couldn't until today. But, it works out as I can use my project for Creepmas! This week's challenge over at Dilly Beans is "Non-Traditional Christmas Colors." Check out my tag.

I used Mimi's Candy Cane for my tag. As you can see....there's no red or green in sight. My tree used to be these colors....plus hot pink and lime green. We've changed it up a bit over the years though.

I colored Mimi with my Spectrum Noir markers. My snowflake is a border punch from Martha Stewart. I used some Stickles to glitter them up. The sentiment is from Bombshell Stamps' Holiday Accessory set.

Thank you so much for all of the input for my wreath card. I loved Steph's idea to use the skull as holly. Maureen, the spider web punch is from Martha Stewart. She really has some of the best punches.

Please be sure to visit the rest of the Jolly Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Also,, please be sure to stop by the Dilly Beans challenge blog to see what the rest of my teamies came up with yesterday. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic 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!
