The heat is on…! I haven’t been able to work in my “craft room” (aka converted garage) because my “heating system” (aka space heater) albeit a great one, broke! The company (Vornado) was very cool and sent a new one but it took a week!!! Feels great to be able to create and be warm!
For my card today, I inked up a new Sugar Nellie stamp called “Best Day Ever” with Memento Ink on Cryrogen white Iridescent paper – I just love coloring these stamps! I worked with the Sweet Shop Challenge Sketch for this week.
Her dress was colored with copics, R85, 83, 81 and R39 & 59. For deeper shading, I also used BV 23. Skin/ E00, 21, 13 &11 with R20 for cheeks. Hair/ E25, 29, 50 & 31, and yes, changing nibs, cleaning caps and refilling sketch markers have cured my E issues! Woo Hoo! Mouse/ E44, 43 and 40 and R20 for his ears. For the boxes, I used a bunch of BG’s and YR’s but did not write them down. Shading around image and under feet/ W5, 3, 1 & 0. Her dress, boxes, shoes and flowers are embellished with Diamond stickles, swarovski crystal and Spica pens.
The cheesecloth was sprayed with Krylon Glue Spray and then Glitter was sprinkled on. Hint: Spray your cut out cheese cloth on waxed paper and the cheesecloth won’t stick. You only need a little spritz of the glue spray, then sprinkle glitter – it dries SO FAST. When dry, simply toss the waxed paper out! No glitter mess and no glue on table or tools. I was able to attach to card in about 15 minutes! Gold metal corner from Wild Orchid Crafts and pearls from stash. Sentiment is from Just Rite stamps.
I used Bazill cardstock and the DP is from DCWV Sweet Stack, an oldie but goodie. She is embellished with Prima and Kaisercraft flowers, Swarovski crystals that I attach with The Embellie Gellie (Gel Pick) – one of my favorite tools!Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! Now it is time for Superbowl Sunday – Go Giants!!
