Sea Creatures with Wicked Wednesday

Hello! I am so excited to bring you my latest ATC for Wicked Wednesday. This week, we are sponsored by a new (to me) digi stamp company called Digistampatelier. These digis are so cool...and many of them are just...haunting. I love them. Our theme this week is "Sea Creaures," and I decided to work with Mermaid and Fish.

Seriously. Love. This. Image. And truth be told, I'm kinda over the whole mermaid thing. I love 'em, but there just seems to be so many out there. But this little beauty takes my breath away. And I loved coloring her. I used my Tombow Recycled pencils, and I went for some unusual colors for her skin, to make her a little bit more "fishy."

I used some Stampendous Mica Flakes and green fibrous paper behind her. I added some foam squares to her so that she would be raised up.

I also sprinkled some assorted embossing powders from Stampendous in the top corner. My paper already had all of those cool, washed out colors, and it worked perfectly with my colored image. I think this is one of my favorite projects that I've made so far this year. There's just something about her...A lot of it has to do with that look in her eyes. Just wait until you see what the rest of the team has come up with. So be sure to visit the Wicked Wednesday Blog to check it all out. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring 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!
