Winter Penguin Tag

Hi there,

today, I am using the adorable penguin image from the Gerda Steiner Designs November-December Digital-Stamp-Bundle to create a winter tag:

  • color the sweet Gerda Steiner Designs Penguin in Sweater image available as part of the November-December Digital-Stamp-Bundle with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Zest-it
  • add highlights with a white gel pen
  • cut out a tag from watercolor paper using one of the My Favorite Things Tag Builder Blueprints 6 dies
  • create an ombre background with Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon)
  • mist the tag with Pearlized Water for a snowy texture and add little dots with a white paint marker
  • thread blue and natural twine through the hole of the tag

Have a wonderful day.

Kitty Gift

Hi there,

I would like to show you this pastel Watercolor Christmas Card over on the A Day for Daisies Blog:

  • color the A Day for Daisies Kitty Gift image with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens, Distress Markers and a damp watercolor brush
  • use the darker shades of the ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens to create a watercolor background on a stitched panel of watercolor paper
  • run this panel through your Big Shot and emboss a subtle texture with the help of the Tim Holtz Layering Stencil (Holiday Knit)
  • accentuate the raised areas with Distress Ink (Hickory Smoke) and a Mini Ink Blending Tool
  • stamp the sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Frosty Fairy Friends onto a strip of black cardstock with Versamark and heat-emboss it with WOW! Bright White Super Fine embossing powder
  • add some iridescent sequins as final embellishments 

Have a day for daisies.
