Bartles

Hello! The Imagine Artist in Residence is sharing projects with dogs this month. So I decided to do a scrapbook page featuring my dog Bartles.

Isn't he adorable???
Supplies:
Imagine:
Memento Ink in Rich Cocoa
Sheer Shimmer in Sparkle and Frost
Fireworks! in Pear Tart
Sponge Dauber

Other:
Stampendous: Crusade Stencil
Xyron: Creative Station and Tape Runner
Quik Kutz: Diesel Alpha Dies
May Arts: Twill
Heidi Swapp: Heart Stamp
Prism: Cardstock

Directions:

1. Start by cropping your photos. Choose your background paper by pulling out a color from the photos. I went with an olive green to match Bartles' color. Then choose 2 coordinating additional cardstocks. I went with 2 shades of brown. Tear 1 sheet to a width of about 5." Tear the second color to the width of about 3 1/2."

2. Die cut the name of your furry friend, or a cute sentiment. Then, spritz the letters with Frost Shimmer Spritz. Let the letters dry.

3. Tape down a background stencil starting in the corner. Only tape a piece across the top so that you can lift it like it's hinged to see if you like how the ink has been applied. Make sure that the stencil is one that lines up easily with itself so that you can continue the pattern across the page. Using a sponge dauber, apply your ink. I used Rich Cocoa Memento.

This is how I tape down the stencil. I can easily check to the way the pattern is coming along. I didn't want to go for a solid pattern. I like it broken up. Continue across the entire sheet.

4. Spray the background with Sheer Shimmer Sparkle and let dry. *None of the pieces have been glued down yet.

5. Using twill ribbon, use a paint brush to apply Pear Tart Fireworks! I loved the paw prints on this ribbon. Stamp a heart on the right side of the page. Then, using the straw from the Frost spritzer, apply some Sheer Shimmer to the heart.

6. Glue down the accent cardstock and photos using a Xyron tape runner. Then, using the Creative Station, apply adhesive to the letters and the twill ribbon. Apply all of your pieces and you're done!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
