Hello folks!! Just imagine my excitement when Sam asked me to be on her design team. To say I was thrilled is an understatement. I have long admired Sam's designs and am now fortunate enough to be one of the few who gets to play with them before they are released. (*Thank you Sam*)
For my first card (4x4inches) I inked the edges and melted in some Cosmic Shimmer UTE Crystals in Gold lustre. I took a small piece of script patterned paper from my stash mountain, inked the edges and embossed it with my Cuttlebug and a Polka Dot Mask. I lightly rubbed over the embossing with black ink. I die cut the doily shape (Cheery Lynn) from some tissue paper (I think this was packaging) I inked with distress inks; scrunched it up a bit before adhering to the card. Once stuck in place I blobbed some more of the UTEC on top of the doily.
The stamped main image is from the newly released Butterfly Girl stamp set. I stamped her; cut her out; masked off the head and the body and sprayed her wings with glimmer mists. When I took the mask off some of the glue dots from my herma glue remained and I quite liked it... so I left them on. I added Sepia Accents to her body and head. I coloured the rose with alcohol markers before embossing with the UTEC. The words are from the new Art Saying stamp set, fabulous words that I know I'll be using again and again. The finishing touches on this card are the cosmic shimmer pearl dots in Golden Pearl and Choco Brown and of course my trademark Ribbon bow.
I sent this card to my crafty buddy Sue Hill who celebrated her birthday today :o)
That's all from me today folks!
