A Day For Daisies: Add Pearls Challenge 3-11-16

It’s Friday and time for more a new post at A Day For Daisies!  This week we are beginning a new challenge by adding “pearls” to our projects.  The challenge will run through Thursday, March 24th at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

I indulged in some of the new paints by Dylusions and created a journal spread for displaying the beautiful image, “Mermaid Vintage Pink Lingerie.” 

I started by coloring her with Copic Markers then began to work on my page by building a base layer with Dylusions Paint followed by more paint put through stencils. I then stamped Technique Junkies “Faint Scratches” followed by “Here We Go Round in Circles” for background noise.

The water is hand painted also using the Dylusions paint with pearls in the middle.  I added some stickles in the circles and finished off with a border.

A Day For Daisies: Add Flowers Challenge Showcasing “It’s a Child’s World 2-26-16

It’s Friday!  Yeah!  We are starting a new challenge at A Day For Daisies and adding some flowers to our projects this week.  For our images, the design team is showcasing images from “It’s a Child’s World.”  The challenge will run through Thursday, March 10th at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

For my card today I used the sweet image called, “Dolls Margaret Evans Price Style.”  I colored the images with Copic Markers and added Prisma pencils to add some detail.  The sky was created with Pan Pastels using a cloud stencil from my stash. 

For my tree, I kept a background made with Ken Oliver Color Bursts and used a My Favorite Things tree die for the branch.  I then took white flowers and colored them in the same Copic’s used for my image, then added gems.

A Day For Daisies: A Child’s World Showcase

It’s Friday and today at A Day For Daisies we are showcasing “It’s A Child’s World.”  Sweet, sweet images with children playing and having a glorious youth-filled adventure. Our “add wood” challenge will continue through Thursday, February 25th.

For my image today I used “Magical Wood Margaret Evans Price Style.”  My Twinkling H2o’s needed a little love, so I colored with them on kraft card stock.  I loved the embossing I put on my card a few weeks ago so I tried a different folder for this image and like this too.  What do you think?

A Day For Daisies: “Add Wood” Challenge

It’s Friday and time for a new challenge at A Day For Daisies!  This week we are looking for “A Touch of Wood” on your project.  The challenge will run through Thursday, February 25th at noon on the A Day For Daisies Blog!

For my card today I used the fabulous image called, “Stick Horse Yellow.”  As the challenge was to add a touch of wood, I used “wood paper” to print my image on.  You can dye cut and print on “wood paper” so I thought this would be perfect to make my rocking horse with.

I then took my Copic R46 marker and colored it in being very careful to stay away from the black line as the wood bleeds terribly.  I also lined the image with a sharpie after I fussy cut it, which also bled a little, but I like the look a lot. I added a deeper shade of wood by distressing the bottom with gathered twigs Distress Ink. 

My paper pad is My Minds Eye Lost & Found – Union Square collection and wood designer collection.  The rectangle was cut out using Lawn Fawn Stitched rectangle die and the red borders are also wood paper colored with Copic R46.  Last, the sentiment is from the Mini Tags collection by Papertrey Ink.

A Day For Daisies: February Kit Club Release

It’s Friday and time for A Day For Daisies Kit Club Release!  In addition, we are still running the “All My Love” challenge so I sure hope you’ll pop by the ADFD Blog by February 11th at noon to enter your card for a chance to win some free images!

For my card today I chose “Stick Horse Ride” to color for you today. I used a combination of Kuretake Gamsi Watercolors and Copic Markers for this adorable image.  I started by printing out the image, masking it with liquid masking fluid, then once that dried, watercolored deep pigment in several places to create whimsy. Once that dried, I removed the mask and colored in with Copics. Don’t be alarmed, sometimes the liquid masking fluid makes the printer ink run a little.  I don’t think it’s noticeable so give it a try.

I die cut the large flag with a My Favorite Thing Die, used a Tim Holtz embossing folder, die cut my die-versions “happy” sentiment, splattered with more watercolor paint and finished up with stickles. Whew!

A Day For Daisies: Designers Valentine Showcase; Challenge 140

Today at A Day For Daisies the design team has chosen some of their favorite love images from the ADFD Store to showcase the “Love” challenge.  The inspiration for this challenge is this great collage.

My card today uses Mr. Right, a vintage image featuring an in love couple.  I started with Copic Markers, added a bit of watercolor pencil, and finished off with Art Anthology “Splash” which is a dimensional paint that is transparent and sparkly. I then embossed the whole image with a We R Memory Keepers folder, used a few My Favorite Things Die’s, added a sentiment from the new Hero Arts kit, and cut out the card base with a Spellbinders scallop die.

A Day For Daisies: Showcase “Cozy Day”

Happy Friday friends!  I’m here this afternoon bringing you more inspiration for the ongoing “Stitching” Challenge at A Day For Daisies showcasing the Cozy Day collection at the ADFD Blog.

For my card I used the adorable “Human Doll” image.  This sweet image was a pleasure to color with Copic Markers.  I used the technique I learned in the December Create & Learn at Kit & Clowder for the sky.  The sentiment is from the new Hero Arts Kit and if you haven’t checked it out, hope over and do so.  It’s glorious.
