Yesterday I had Alicia pick out a few of her favorite images and I went with the Tuesday Creeper for her card~ my first time using the Creepers and boy are they fun! The paper I used is actually digital paper from Tiddly Inks (and this was my first time using digi paper as well). I stamped a large flourish stamp on the right side of the heart paper in gray and then colored over it with a Spica clear pen. The edges of the cardstock and her "eyeshadow" were also colored with the same Spica pen ~ it took awhile to color the cardstock, but the shimmer it has in real life made it worth it. The bottom has three layers of scalloped tulle and then a silver organdy ribbon along with a trio of pearls. On the image panel, I used the distressed stripes folder, sanded it and then sponged it with gray. The sentiment was computer generated and I then colored it with R21, T0, T1 and 0 to mimic the heart paper colors. As a final touch I added one of my precious rhinestone swirls ~ I have a few of these, but because they really are not cheap, I hate to use them unless I know the card will be cherished and I know in this case I have nothing to worry about ~ she absolutely loved it! :)
Here is a close up showing the shimmer a little better:
I hope to head into the craft room again this week, but I am swamped with appointments and Girl Scout events through Sunday. And here I thought once the kids were back in school I'd have all kinds of free time.....maybe next week.
Since I have to post while it is still her Birthday, I will come back and update the challenges I want to enter this card into.
OK...after a bit of picking and choosing (to remain at 10 total challenges), I am entering the following:
Nutty Nutshells - "Pretty in Pink"
Southern Girls - "Anything Goes"
Stamp and Create - "Pearls and Gems"
One Stop Craft Challenge - "Fashion Throughout the Years"
Aly's Sunday Challenge - "Sparkle and Glitter"
Club Anya and Friends - Case this card: My notes...In place of the musical notes I stamped the flourish stamp on my paper. The rhinestone swirl replaces the butterfly, the sentiment replaces the circle with the 8, the ribbon "bow" replaces the flower and the scalloped layers of tulle replace the torn paper layers
Pear Tree Designs - "Pink"
Our Daily Bread - "Make Your Creations Sparkle"
Scrap Creations - "Gotta Go Digi" - digi paper and digi sentiment
Paper Sundaes - Minimum of 3 embellishments - Organdy, Tulle, Rhinestones, Pearls
Have a great day!
