Day 9 of 31- Haunted Mansion

Welcome to Day 9 of the 31 Days of Halloween! Today I have a project featuring the Haunted Mansion stamp from Stampendous.

I colored the image with my Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. The stamp is so big that the card came together pretty quickly, which is awesome. I rubbed lots of fabulous Brown Shimmer Delicata Ink from Imagine all around the border of my once-white card base.

Then, I dripped some faBOOlous Love Letter irRESISTable (also from Imagine) around the edge. This mansion looks like a very old vampire could be living there, so the "blood" was a necessity.

There you have it! Don't forget to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed in my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fangtastic 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!
