Joan's Garden challenge asked us to do the following:
1. Use a Magnolia or Sarah Kay image (or any character)
2. Include something that sparkles
3. Use a Nestie Spellbinder
4. Include a greeting
SO I inked up my Tilda with Love Rice image from Magnolia stamps and colored her with copics for Mona's Cr84FN3 challenge colors of light pink, bright pink and light green. I then added SU! Dazzling Diamonds to the basket of hearts and to Tilda's angel wings for some sparkle. I used three nesties - Labels 10, Labels 8, and Labels 4 on this card and I included a greeting from PTI. Here's a close up of Tilda. (Mona I just had to use some brown for her shoes LOL).
A close up of the prima flower - I added some Dazzling Dust chunky glitter to it - thanks to my fellow JUGS and MTME team member Lisa Kind who was sweet enough to send this to me - THANK YOU LISA!!!! It works beautifully.
Finally - here's a shot of my card stock BG.
The white CS was just too plain for me but my 5-1/4" square card was too big to easily run through my CB etc. I wanted the BG to be subtle so I inked up an old SU! floral background stamp with Versamark and stamped my white CS. I liked the effect and put it all aside and went to bed. In the morning I wasn't quite so happy with the Veramark on white - it didn't show up enough so I used some very light green chalk and rubbed over the BG and sure enough - the image began to pop through. (I think the technique is actually called Poppin Pastels.) I then adhered all my layers and my card was complete.
Have a great Veteran's Day. My "other son" (aka my son Kevin's best friend Ian) is home from Afghanistan so this Veteran's Day will be a day to be even more proud and thankful for the service of our military men and women.
Hugs n Smiles,
