Fairy Friday

Hi…I know, it’s Saturday!  Here’s my A Day For Daisies post that was supposed to be up yesterday…

 

This is Talking with the Moon…so pretty!

DPK_ADFD_Talktohermoon

This week is a challenge…to create an Art Journal project.  After printing the image twice, I cut one out and colored it with Copic markers.  On the other panel I dripped Adirondack Alcohol inks in various colors.  Then I wrote the quote from Colin Farrell.  Lastly I spritzed the panel with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Vanilla Breeze and Iridescent Gold.

Next I adhered the colored image to the distressed panel and added sparkle to the moon and stars with Angel Wings Shimmers paint.    You can read the quote in the close up below.

I’ve never seen a moon in the sky that, if it didn’t take my breath away, at least misplaced it for a moment –Colin Farrell.

So pretty!

Fin-tastic!

Happy Friday!  I have a super cute new image from A Day For Daisies to share today.

Here’s Catfish-isn’t she cute?!

DPK_ADFD_Catfish

I started by coloring the image with Copic markers.  Then I tried to paint her tail with iridescent paint but just couldn’t get the color right…so I feverishly tried to wipe it off to no avail.  Next I painted over it with glitter paint from Deco Art instead…made it salvageable at least.    I diecut some pretty glittered paper from DCWV and then ran it through with a Cuttlebug embossing folder with bubbles on it.  I layered onto the pretty shell patterned paper from DCWV and added a sentiment flag I hand cut and an older stamp from CC Designs. 

Check out all the sweet images the DT has to share today!

Lovely Lilacs

Today is the second monthly release of the new digi images department of Power Poppy.  Today the Instant Gardeners are sharing French Lilacs.  One of my most favorite flowers and another gorgeous illustration by Marcella Hawley.

My apologies in advance for the less than stellar photo of my card…I wasn’t using the editing program I normally do and I struggled, lol!

Here it goes…

DPK_IG_Lilacs 

First I printed the image on watercolor paper, then I colored it with Copic markers.  I used various markers to make dots around the blooms: B0000, B00, B02.  I also painted each of the tiny flowers with Twinkling H20’s to make them shimmer.  Then I spritzed the entire panel with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Jack Frost.

This beautiful new digital stamp is available today in the Power Poppy store.  For inspiration please visit the Instant Gardeners below and prepare to be wowed!

Lets Sparkle!

Good morning!  It’s another frigid winter day here on Long Island!  Yikes…I hate to go outside!

This is an oldie but a goodie!  I am revisiting these adorable owls from the February Club Kit.  This is Owl Nephew.   Our challenge this week is to Add  Some Sparkle.  Won’t you join us?

DPK_ADFD_OwlNephew

I started by printing the digi image on white cardstock.  I colored it with Copic markers.  Then I used a scrap to punch out a circle and used the circle to place over the owl while I sponged Night Sky ink from Memento all over the panel.  When I removed the circle it created the moon behind the owl.  I then used iridescent white paint on the moon to make it shimmer.   Lastly I added Icicle Stickles to the stars to really make them sparkle!  I used a really nice smooth and sparkly cardstock from a DCWV mat stack for the background panels.

You can see the sparkly details on the close up below.

More Love Coming Your Way

Happy Friday everyone!  There are more lovely images to showcase this week from A Day for Daisies.   The February Club Kit features some super cute elephants with lots of love to share!

This is Elephant In Love.

DPK_ElephantinLove

So simple and oh so sweet!  After I colored this cutie with Copic markers I cut him out along with the hearts.  They are all popped up on foam adhesive on a heart shaped layer I used Spellbinders dies to make.  I created the vertical panel using the Swirls embossing folder from Cuttlebug and cream card stock.  After embossing I went over the swirls with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I painted the elephant with Pink glitter paint.  All of the paper and the sentiment are from the Recollections paper pad Valentine. 

Make sure you visit each of the ladies below to see their lovely heartful creations!

Love is in the Air

Happy Friday!  Today over on the A Day For Daisies blog is a Valentine challenge.  

I’ve chosen this sweet little fuzz button to create my valentine’s inspired card.  This is Hoppity.

DPK_ADFD_Hoppity

I colored my image with Copic markers that coordinated with this sweet paper from the Recollections pad Valentine.  I love the soft blues and pinks and grays.    I shaded around the image with Prismacolor pencils and oms and sponged the edges of the panel with London Fog Memento Dye Ink.   I made his little tail fuzzy with white flocking and I added sparkle to the leaves and butterfly with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.

I used Spellbinders squares and Lacey Squares to cut the image and mat.  The heart is a punch and the stamp at the bottom right is a sticker, both from Martha Stewart. 

We’d love for you to play along!

Head on over to each blog below to see all of the valentine inspired samples the design team has to share with you today!

Flower Fairy Friday

Yippee!  I love Fridays!  I don’t have to cook…and I don’t have to work.  I can start my weekend early :)

Another set of beautiful new fairies are headed your way from A Day For Daisies.

Today I have Fairy Flower Outing.  A little lovely gathering flowers.

DPK_ADFD_fairyflowerouting

So first I colored my image with Copic markers. Then I painted over her dress with Twinkling H2O’s in lime green.  I also cut out a vellum wing, popped it up, and painted over that with sparkly, glittery, iridescent paint.   I shaded around the lovely with Prismacolor pencils and oms.   After I cut out the image with a deckled edged rectangle from Spellbinders, I sponged inside the die with Rose Petal from a Memento Dew Drop.    The patterned paper is from the Victoria Gardens pad by Echo Park.  Looks like spring!  I guess we have to get through winter first…

Okay, off you go to see all of the magical samples the design team has to share with you today!
