Day 21: Hey Pumpkin!

Yup...I'm late. Stupid late. Like, it's almost tomorrow! But,, these past 2 weeks have been insanely busy. Pampered Chef meetings, Pampered Chef Shows (need anything??? ;) ), school meetings, regular errands....so my apologies for posting so...late.....

I used the Jack O Lantern stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils. First, I applied alcohol inks to one side of the stencil, much like I did with the spider web stencil on my Hedwig card. But this time I used textured cardstock and 2 colors of ink, so the look is totally different. Because of this, I felt my Jacks didn't stand  out enough, so I cleaned off my stencil and inked them.

So I used the most stunning gold ink that I've ever seen. Delicata Golden Glitz from Imagine Crafts. Love the shimmer, and in person it's even more beautiful. I outlined everything with a marker, and then added my sentiment from Cosmo Cricket. Ta-da! Better late than never, right?

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!
