The image I am sharing with you today is WHAT BIG EYES ... from THE EYES OF ADVENTURE and FABLE COLLECTION.  I really love this image because she is so versatile.

For the tag I used an  INKSENTIALS CRAFT TAG - MANILA #8.  The background colors are DYLUSION SPRAYS - FRESH LIME AND SQUEEZED ORANGE...Several stamps were used - DYLUSION - BIT AND BATS,  and   DYLUSION - BIRDS ON A WIRE.  I added some BLACK DIAMOND  and STARDUST STICKLES on the bat and bird. 

The bats in the corner are flying around DIES BY SCACD - SUN AND MOON STATEMENT CORNER.  However, I cut it up so below is a picture of the entire die.

Keep on hopping  and enjoy the fun.  From here you should go to SUZANNE'S BLOG.

Hi Everyone,
Sorry I am so late with this post.  Hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!!
I would like to share this beautiful stamp with you.  It is  HER MAJESTY'S EYES from THE EYES OF FABLES COLLECTIONIsn't she just gorgeous?
She is colored with Copics and highlighted with COPIC GLITTER PENS.

The background is an  INKSENTIALS CRAFT TAG - #8  sprayed with Dylusion Spray  POSTBOX RED  and CRUSHED GRAPE   The heart border at the top and the corners at the bottom were also sprayed with CRUSHED GRAPE.
There were several different stamps used for the background.  The black hearts is from the DYLUSION INBETWEENIES SET.  A CRAFTERS WORKSHOP STENCIL - SWIRLS & FLOWERS  was used for the red hearts.  I stenciled with red paint and went around them with a charcoal pencil.  The dark purple lines were stamped with an IMPRESSION OBSESSION CLING STAMP - THIN LINES.
Also, in the background in dark purple is the accessory stamp that comes with HER MAJESTY'S EYES.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Good Morning,

Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend! I am in TN visiting my daughter and it is gorgeous here. This is my first time to visit the state of TN and it is fall here. She lives in the country and the trees are changing and the colors of purple, gold, orange, and green are like a picture.

Today I would like to show you some of the GORGEOUS DIES BY SCACD.  I own different brands of dies and I have to tell ya - even as intricate as these are they cut beautifully and without any extra work.

This is a door I will eventually use on a card, mixed media, or some other project.  I haven't decided if I will put a Christmas Wreath or Autumn Wreath on it and make a card or use it in my art journal.  There are so many possibilities - even a Welcome to Your New Home. 

The background is embossed and I used different LUMINARTE SILKS ACRYLIC GLAZES in various colors.  I just applied one a time, wiped off, and just kept adding until I achieved the look I wanted.

Look at the intricate details  of this hinge and so easy to cut.    
This beautiful die is actually 2 dies.  The knob is a separate die from the doorplate which makes it really versatile.
I want to show you just a couple more the beautiful Dies by SCACD.  Remember these can be cut up and used in various ways.
 Wouldn't these corners be great on Fall or Halloween Corners?  They are beautiful on any card.

I know my post is getting kinda long, but Susana has in some new products I don't want you to miss out on.  This will be a short list and then just browse around and see what all you can find.

Enjoy the weekend and I will see you next week with a new project.
