A Day For Daisies Surprise Blog Hop

As many of you know,  A Day For Daisies has some of the most GORGEOUS digital images out there.  I was over the moon thrilled to be asked to participate in a special surprise blog hop dedicated to Tammy, the creator of A Day For Daisies images.  The current and some of the past Design Team members want to show our gratitude and thank Tammy for the blessings and joys we have received as members of the A Day For Daisies Design Team.

Our hop theme is “A Collection of ADFD Favorites.”  Each DT member will feature her favorite ADFD image.  The hop has hidden prizes so don’t forget to comment beginning today until 9:00 p.m. eastern standard time on Tuesday, February 27, 2017.

We also want your participation!  Enter a card over at the A Day For Daisies Challenge Blog using an ADFD image.   You have until Friday, March 3rd to enter your cards.

For my favorite image, I’ve chosen “Doll Face 5”.  I’ve colored her up using my favorite Copic Markers.  The skin is done in Eooo, Eoo, E21, E11, E04 & R20.  The hair is E55, E53, E51 & E50 with added color pencil work.  Her luscious lips are R89, R35 and R14 and her eyes are B04 & B12.  That glorious background is a super technique I learned from Jennifer Dove which uses 91% alcohol and copic markers applied off a palette in B29 & B25. I then texturized with burlap and more alcohol for a great background.  My sentiment is Wplus 9’s Hand Lettered Hello and my frame is the new Hero Arts Infinity Postage Stamp die.


Here is the original card I posted several years ago using this image.

ADFD Gradient

All prize winners will be announced on the ADFD Blog on Saturday, March 4, 2017. We hope you will join our celebration of the thousands of images Tammy has created. Rules for the challenge are posted on the right sidebar of the ADFD Blog! Are you ready to HOP?!?














Thanks Tammy!!
