OK so I've went a little overboard on challenges today. But it was a pretty day and the house was clean, plus I didn't have to work. So I had some extra time on my hands.
First up is my card for The Play Date Cafe Challenge 69:
This week the PDCC has teamed up with Case Study Challenge. So I cased the above card. I also made this card for the following challenges:
Papertrey Ink Make It Monday's - Vellum Sentiment
Moxie Fab World - Paper Piecing
Moxie Fab World - Stamp with Shimmer
Carabilities Sketch 25
Sometimes it is so fun to go out of your comfort zone and create something. I think shimmer sprays are messy and I try my best to avoid messes, but Moxie Fab World has a shimmer challenge this week that I wanted to enter. So I used Papertrey Ink's "Year of Flowers - Violets" as my base. I stamped them onto white cardstock then used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Shimmers Spritz to color. I used a q-tip and stuck it directly into the shimmer bottle to soak up. Then I dabbed off the excess and started coloring my image. It's kinda like using water colors, you can make areas darker or lighter by adding more mist. Then I cut my stamped image out and the great thing is since glimmer mists are water, the leaves and flowers slightly curled around the edges, adding a very pretty touch.
I then added a vellum sentiment as the finishing touch. Enjoy!!!
