Speak No Evil: Day 11 of 31 Days of Halloween

Hello again! I have a card to share with you today, and I am really happy with how it turned out. I started off with Speak No Evil from the Stamping Chef.

 I haven't gotten to color too many images for this 31 Days so far, so I was really happy to get this one all done up. I colored her mostly with watercolor markers, but  did use a few alcohol markers, and Antique Linen Distress Ink Reinker for her face. Originally, I had her face whte with a bit of gray to give shadows. But after picking my papers and such, the white was way too stark. I applied the ink with a brush after diluting it with a bit of water.

Her hair was a great to color. I love how it was drawn. The little "cards" on the side was another part of my winnings from the last 31 Days. They are from a Graphics 45 pad that was in my parcel. I thought they were perfect with her.

I'm going to enter my card into The Stamping Chef's current challenge which is Anything Goes. Now I bid you adieu...please be sure to check out the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a creep-tastic day!

You have chosen the perfect cards and bits to add to her image.
Her skintone is marvelous.
I agree, even a dull white would not have had the same impact.
A more yellowed linen works beautifully.

what can I say - LOVE her hair!

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!
