Feathers and Sandy Claws

Today is one of those days where my projects are on opposite sides of the spectrum. My first project is for A Day for Daisies, and the second is for Left of Center.
***If you are looking for my latest Stampendous post, please click HERE.

Isn't this the sweetest image? It's called Bird in Flight. The joy on this boy's face makes me smile. Our theme this week is "Add a Feather."

I colored the image with my Tombow markers, and I added the polka dots with my white Sakura pen. My feather was created with my Feather stencil from Dreamweaver. I outlined it with a black PITT pen, and then I used some watercolors to color it in.

I fussy cut the Bird in Flight image out and added it on top of my feather. I also added a sweet sentiment from Stampendous! and some drops of Platinum Liquid Pearls. Ink, more paper...layer, layer, voila!
Now....opposite end of the spectrum. This week's theme for Left of Center is "Based on a Song." We are sponsored by Delicious Doodles, and I decided to go with the Kidnap Sandy Claws song.

He's pretty creeptastic, huh? This guy was also colored with my Tombow markers. I used scratchy lettering for the "Sandy Claws" and a couple scraps of paper. It was a quick ATC, but I think he's pretty cool.

Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daisies Blog, as well as the Left of Center Blog. Lots of great projects to see! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holy cow!! I came over from the Stampendous blog hop, clicked on your name and was intrigued by "A Day For Daisies." I really loved "Bird in Flight," how sweet!

So, "Left of Center," what's that? Ok, when I say I was shocked, after scrolling down from cute and innocent little "Flight," I'm not blowing smoke here … total shock value!! WOW!! LOL!! I'm laughing at myself now, cause I certainly was NOT expecting your super creepy Santa!!

I'm so glad I stopped by! What an incredible artist you are! I'm awake now for sure! :-) Thanks so much for sharing your awesome talent!

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!
