Day 21 of 31 Days: Silent Night and WW

Hello! It's Day 21 of the Smeared & Smudged 31 Days of Halloween. Only 10 days left! I've got 2 projects to share today, but one isn't Halloween. I know, I know...crazy! The non-Halloween is for Wicked Wednesday. Let's start with the Halloween project though, huh?

I have been wanting to make this project for a while, and I am really happy with how it turned out. I used the fantastic Silent Night stamp from Stampendous. I stamped it on to watercolor paper and then used Detail Black embossing powder and heat set it.

Then I played with some watercolor paint. Then I stamped out my tombstones on to gray cardstock, and watercolored them a bit as well. I also used foam strips to pop it up off of the card's bottom.

Ahhh, it's nice to stretch my creepy-styled legs. Now on to...well....a not creepy at all project. ;)

The theme for Wicked Wednesday this week is Funky Colored Hair and we are sponsored by Lacy Sunshine. I used Sweetest Day Love Not Fairy. I have to admit, with all of the Halloween fun that I have been having, this was a challenge for me! I colored her with my Recycled Pencils from Tombow. I gave her a bit of a fiery mane. Not colors I typically use for hair.

I used a great sentiment from Stampendous (as well as a teeny heart from the same set-which I embossed), and some Delicata Ink from Imagine Crafts around the edge of my ATC. Love the shine of that ink! Well, for now I will bid you adieu. Please be sure to visit the rest of the WW gals as well as the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my side bar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a boo-tiful day!

the fairy is very pretty.
I love the winter scene (i'm calling it winter since the trees seem to be bare). this is a great stamp set. So many things could be added to complement it.
thanks for sharing

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!
