http://www.2sketches4you.blogspot.com/ has an awesome sketch by Laura this week…and the winner gets a spot on the design team..omg, how exciting would that be?! 🙂 http://critterchallengeblog.blogspot.com/ has a THANK YOU card challenge and finally http://www.cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/ challenges us to use acetate!
Ok so here is my what I did for my card! And I must say, I am very pleased with the result! I first took my cricut, and cut out a 3 inch circle from George and stamped a C.C. Designs stamp, Heidi on the circle. I set to work to colour her (I figured I would figure out papers after colouring!) and used my copics (of course lol 😉 )! I then restamped her using black Staz On onto acetate. Now here is where I did something different..I adhered her wings using glossy accents UNDER the acetate, to give it dimension, then added for a bit of shimmer..a tiny bit of Opalite re-inker in Orchid Ice on the tips of her wings! SOOOOOOOOOO pretty lemme tell ya..I wish the camera picked up the shimmer. Then I cut my card base from Baja Breeze by Stampin Up. I inked the edges in Pink Pirouette, then adhered a piece of patterned paper from DCWV Sweet stack. I then added the ribbon, and my stamped image. It was still missing something, oh ya..the sentiment, so I added it from my fave stamp set, Short & Sweet, in magenta ink, and added a bit of distressed inking to the edges using my memento ink. Then I thought, well its still missing something, but what… BLINNNNNNNNG! So I added 2 little blue gems to bring out the blue of the paper in the background of the card, and added 2 little gems in each of her pony tails! FUN! I love this card, and think it is soooooo cute, and one of my best!! I hope you like it as much as I do! Have a wonderful day! PS I flipped Laura’s sketch sideways for my card! Hope thats ok!!!!!
