Greetings! Today I have two projects to share with you, both featuring digis from A Day for Daisies. I LOVE their digis. I have said it before, and I’ll say it again. They are by far, one of my most favorite stamp companies ever. I adore these images. And, since I was the very lucky winner of their last challenge (YAY!!!), I won a few images.
The first project is a card that is for the newest ADFD challenge. The challenge is to “Use Newsprint.” I used the new Aloha Blooms image, and paired it with a sentiment from Ginger’s House.
Oh, I just love her. I had a fun time coloring her…I experimented with some new combinations of skin tones. I worked with alcohol markers and watercolor markers, plus, the background was done in watercolors.
I also played with a brand new stencil that I got from Stencil Girl. It’s called “Web” and I love it. I used 3 colors of ink (applied via stencil brush), ad then embossed it with clear powder.
Sorry that the color is way off in this photo. For my “newsprint” element, I found this page in a parcel I had gotten from a friend a long time ago. I thought the words were pretty great with this image. I am entering this card in the Sweet Stampin’ Challenge. Their challenge is “Anything but Birthday.” Also, in the Crafty Calendar Challenge “Sunshine and Showers).
This week at Wicked Wednesday, the challenge is “Things with Wings.” Well, with my winnings from the ADFD challenge, I got several fairies….fairies are a bit of an obsession of mine. The fairy I used on this ATC is my favorite A Day for Daisies image. It just…speaks to me. I can’t tell you how happy just looking at this sweet little fairy makes me. I have big plans for this sweetie, so be prepared to see this Little Nymph (so aptly named) a lot.
I colored the image with my 2 types of markers, and again, I watercolored the background. I used a beautiful woodgrained stamp that I have had in my stash for years. It’s a favorite of mine.
The “sit” I added was made with a Just Rite alpha stamp. Seriously, I just love this image. I am also going to enter this ATC in the new Pumpkin Spice challenge, which is “Nature.” Well, I am off to create something else! Thank you for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Alison, these are both gorgeous. The skin and flowers are colored absolutely perfectly on the first one – and I love that image, too, I love that she's not pencil-thin. I also love your ATC, of course. Can never go wrong with fairies. Thanks for joining us at Wicked Wednesday. 🙂
Both creations are gorgeous.
Love the effect from that stencil.
Thanks for sharing with us at Sweet Stampin'

WOW Alison! Loving both of your creations. The layout on the ATC is super fab and really plays to the strength of such a tiny canvas. 😀 Love, love, love it! So glad you joined us at WW this week. Goodluck!
Both cards are beautiful. First one with absolutely gorgeous image and I love all details as well.
Thank you for joining us at Sweet Stampin` “Anything but Birthday” Challenge and we hope to see you again soon.
