Desert Islands Crafter's Challenge is Back!

Hello! I am really excited about this post today! Why? Because Desert Islands Crafters Challenge is back! I'm hoping you've heard of our little challenge, but in case you haven't, here's the low down. On the 1st and 15th of each month, we will post a 10 item list. So if you were stranded on a desert island, and you had to use at least 3 of the items from the list, what would you create? To explain even further, here's the list for the next 2 weeks:
1. Things with Wings
2. Celebration
3. Let's Eat Cake
4. Spots or Dots
5. Stripes
6. Stars
7. Balloons
8. Your Favorite Color
9. Make it Sparkle
10. Anything but a Card

So, my project used #'s 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, and 10. I'd like to add, that we are sponsored by the fabulous Delicious Doodles.

I used the image called Venetian Beauty, and I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I fussy cut her out and started to work on my background.


I used the Graduated Dot stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils (via Stampendous) along with some Dylusions sprays. I added a lovely scrap from DCWV to the bottom and Tear It! Tape from Imagine with fabulous burgundy glitter from Stampendous. 


I hope you will join us for our challenge. You have until the 14th of September....the new challenge goes up on the 15th. Please be sure to visit the DICC Blog to see what the rest of the team has created. 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!
