A Day For Daisies: New Release 10-2-15

It’s Friday and time for a new release at A Day For Daisies!  In addition, we are still running the “Photo Inspiration” challenge so I sure hope you’ll pop by the ADFD Blog by October 8th at noon to enter your card for a chance to win some free images!

For my Design Team inspiration, I chose “Little Witches Wing” to color for you today.  I used Copic Markers in my favorite purple combination of V09, V06, V05 and V01.  I also used the cool grays for shades of black and YR04, YR07, YR09 for my oranges.  The background is a combination of Y38, Y15 and Y04 mixed with 91% alcohol in a water brush.

I cut my image with a Lifestyle Crafts scallop die and distressed the edges with Antique Linen distress ink.  My bat is from a Paper Smooches die, my sentiment from My Favorite Things, and the paper is a My Minds Eye paper pack called, “Enchanted.”

We look forward to seeing your creations not only at A Day For Daisies Blog but also on the ADFD Facebook Community Page!

FtHS-blog-hop-oct Meet the DT

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store.  Additionally, we will have a game with prizes on the FTHS blog!

If you have arrived from Kathy Curry’s website, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

Here is my project, using “Candy Run.”  For those of you who know me, fall is my favorite time of the year and this devious little mousey had me at “free candy.”  The technique that I find I can’t live without is Copic Coloring.  I also created a shaker card using a My Favorite Things frame die!

Tips:

What is your best tip for taking good photos of your cards?

I use a Cowboy Photo Tent & Lights. It really helps focus the light and gives a great picture. You can find it fairly inexpensively at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-24in-Photo-Soft-Light/dp/B001TKEUNI/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1443040906&sr=8-9&keywords=cowboy+photoand http://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-Photography-Table-Studio-Lighting/dp/B002SOBPH8/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1443040906&sr=8-6&keywords=cowboy+photo

What is your best coloring tip?

Take Classes. I loved taking Copic Classes. I started with Basic & Advanced Copic certification and have enjoyed Online Card Classes Copic course and the Kit & Clowder classes that you can find on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/kitandclowder/

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday October 5th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday October 7th.
