Pumpkin ATC for Day 3 of 31 Days of Halloween

Welcome to Day 3 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween! Today, I bring you an ATC using a cool pumpkin stamp from Inkadinkado.

I colored the image with alcohol markers and used a cool fabric tape on the bottom. Then, I added Queen's Gold Embossing powder from Ranger around the edge. Super simple ATC, but I dig it. I hope you do too.

Please be sure to check out all the rules for 31 Days on Terra's Blog. And check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic 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!
