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.

A Day For Daisies: Vellum Challenge

It’s Friday and time for the second post at A Day For Daisies for our continuing Vellum challenge, which runs through Thursday, June 2nd at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

For my card today I used the beautiful image called, “Magical Dancer Bust.”  I colored her up with Copic Markers and framed her using My Minds Eye “Fancy That” collection. The background features a My Favorite Things stamp and a few embellishments from My Minds Eye. The gold in this paper doesn’t photograph well, but it’s really lovely in real life.

A Day For Daisies: Vellum Challenge

It’s Friday and time for a new challenge at A Day For Daisies.  This week we are using “Vellum.”  The challenge will run through Thursday, May 26th at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

For my card today I used the beautiful image called, “Magical Poppy Dancer.”  I began by coloring this image with Copic Markers. I then used a Spellbinders die to cut out colored vellum for a lovely frame, then placed another frame of craft card stock over the entire image.  My background is a My Favorite Things script stamp in Hero Arts Vanilla,  my sentiment comes from Tim Holtz rub-ons, and I finished off with some hemp twine.

Paint it up

For my card today I chose “Little Dancer Daisy” to “paint it up” for you today. I used FW Pearlescent Acrylic Paints as my medium today for the great shimmer they leave. I began with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and some molding paste.  Once dried, I applied the pearlescent paints randomly over the background.  My image is also colored in the same colors then fussy cut.  My sentiment is Clearly Besotted.

For my card today I chose “Little Dancer Rose” to “Paint it Up” for you today. I used a Rubber Necker “splatter” stamp with Distress Inks for this adorable image.  The rainbow is a My Favorite Things die and I finished off with a AlteNew sentiment and a bit of great chevron washi.

A Day For Daisies: Designers Vintage Showcase 4-29-16

Today at A Day For Daisies the design team has chosen some of their favorite Vintage images from the ADFD Store.  The “Anything But A Card” challenge is still going strong so be sure to stop by and enter your special project.

My card today uses Lady Hat Feathers, a vintage image featuring this lovely portrait.  I colored the image with Copic Markers and used My Minds Eye “Fancy That” paper pack.  To me, nothing says vintage more than some sewing and I love the effect used with my machine.

A Day For Daisies: Anything But A Card Challenge

It’s Friday friends and time for another post featuring the Vintage Hats Collection by A Day For Daisies.  We are also starting a new challenge using “Anything But A Card”.  The challenge will run through Thursday, May 5th so we hope you’ll come on over to enter.

For today’s card, I used “Vintage School Girl Four” which I colored with Dylusions Inks.  This is a really fun technique though it does use water and can cause bleeding of your printer ink. Simply begin by adding small amounts of water where you want color, then drop Dylusions Ink into the water for a vibrant watercolor look.

For my tag I used the My Favorite Things Blueprint Tag stamped with Technique Junkies French Text background. I died the ribbon with Dylusions inks and used the Simple Stories “DIY Boutique” paper pack.  My sentiment and the swirls stamp are by My Craft Spot called, Tiny Tags.

Anything But a Card

We can’t wait to see what your “Anything But A Card” entry looks like using your A Day For Daisies Images.  Please also visit our Facebook Community Page as we’d love to see your cards there too!

A Day For Daisies: Vintage Hat’s 4-15-16

It’s Friday and today at A Day For Daisies we are showcasing the Vintage Hat Collection!  I’d also like to remind you we are still playing the “Add Lace” Challenge that ends on April 21st at Noon so come on by and enter while you can.

To highlight this collection, I made a card using “Vintage Dried Rose.”  This gorgeous image stands on its own.  I used Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers on watercolor paper with no water, only blending the markers with lighter markers.  This helps reduce the bleeding from the printed image.  Also, always let it dry well.  The sentiment is WPlus 9 and the circle die is My Favorite Things.

We look forward to seeing you at both A Day For Daisies Blog and Facebook Community Page!
