Creating Fall and ADFD August Club Kit

Hello! I have a 2-fer for you today. My first project is for the Fall theme that we Stampendous gals have been sharing with you all week. The second is for the new August Club Kit from A Day for Daisies.

Let me start by saying that I LOVE House Mouse stamps! If you've been following me for a while, you know that I prefer creepy stuff...but when it comes to House Mouse images, I just melt! For today's card, I used Trick or Tweet. I colored the stamp with a combination of Tombow watercolor markers and Copics. I also used watercolor paints for my sky.

If you look really close, you'll see that the bird has a teeny seed that he's giving to the trick or tweeters.

For my background, I used the negative background that I had created for yesterday's card....scroll down to my next post to see! It was made with Pale Ale Memory Mist and the stencil that comes with the Wired stamp set. On top of that, I inked the Oak Leaf in random areas to add more oomph to the background. I inked my card base a bit, and I added the Copper Lux Mix to 2 corners. I also added a wee bit of rik rak from May Arts. Here are the rest of the folks posting today from Stampendous.

For A Day for Daisies, we are sharing the August Club Kit. I worked with Vintage Lip Color. And, I went very "Alison-Style." I made it kinda goth, and I love it.

Isn't she lovely? I colored her with my Tombow markers. I wanted to make her kinda creepy-chic. Is that a thing? I'd like to make it a thing. I want to BE creepy-chic myself. There. I'm coining it. Creepy-Chic. You saw it here first. ;) But I digress.....

For my background, I started with the Fleur de lis Dreamweaver Stencil and I inked it with a deep purple ink. I added a couple cool pieces of scrap paper, and super sparkly ribbon, plus some micro beads.

I looooove this image, and I can't wait to color her up again. I'll even try a softer more straight laced version. She's just gorgeous. And wait until you see the rest of the images in the August Club Kit. You're going to love them. Please be sure to visit the A Day for Daisies blog to see more! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
