Papercraft Star Challenge

IMG_0031

Happy Sunday,

I have a brand “New to Me”  Challenge site that I came across as I was

surfing the blogosphere the other day.

 It is called Papercraft Star.

They are celebrating there 3rd year and a new look and have

a beautiful inspiration photo challenge that really caught my eye!

Here is the fabulous photo:

They also are giving away some Blog candy just for commenting….that’s awesome!!!

Here is my card followed by some step by step photos of the process!

The ink is a mixture of Stampin Up, Colorbox and Studio G.

It was done on Glossy Stampin Up card stock.

Here is where I made a big mistake and put my sponge in the

wrong ink pad…..I was so mad and might have said a bad word.

( I don’t recall) wink wink!

I forgot to take the photo of the one blue blob on my card…

so here is what I started to do to fix it!

So hubby suggested that I try to put some more orange over the clouds

and of course that turned them a little muddy! ( ones on the right)

Thanks anyways Honey!  He said, ” I was afraid of that.”

Never fear…I have a plan to cover them up! 🙂

I found these rub-ons in my odds and ends bin!  Love them!

The Meet Me Here was stamped the rest are rub-ons.

I thought the torn paper worked well as sand….haven’t done that in Forever!!!

Gosh I wish I had a shell of some sort to put on that twine!

And I live in Florida!  Ha Ha!

See you then!

Hosting @ Just Us Girls and More…

JUGS+186

I am thrilled to be your HOSTESS this week for my first hosting job as part

of the Design team at Just Us Girls.

 When I realized my first challenge was going to be a photo challenge,

I immediately thought of pink and black (my favs) and hopped on over to google images.

After just a couple of seconds, I found these two photos that I knew would be perfect!

 I picked two images so that you might have a few choices.

 You may either get inspirations from the color pallet and take that route,

reproduce some flowers like I have done,

or you may be intrigued by the damask pattern on the purse.

 You decide!

Now the details:  I used my spectrum Noir pens and colored the BACK of my flowers

after I heat embossed them on Vellum with white embossing powder.

LOVE this look!

I first saw this technique over at Driven to Ink blog….a few years ago.

Over at the Pink Elephant that is the challenge this week… to “Lift” or “Case” a card or technique.

So I chose the Technique of Embossing and Coloring on Vellum!

So, I will also be linking this card to their challenge as well as

over at Addicted to CAS.

My second entry!

ATCAS - code word flower

They asked us to use flowers.

The sentiment is from Close to My Heart.

I’m THRILLED to have hosted the fun with Just Us Girls, this week…

PLEASE  WON’T  YOU JOIN THE GIRLS AND I !!

Can’t wait to see what you link up!

Nancy
