It’s a Surprise!

   **Woo Hoo!  Starting with this challenge, Stamptacular Sundays will now feature “Top 3 Winners” each week in addition to our random drawing! Join us for great challenges, prizes and a chance to be selected for our “Top 3” weekly winner!

     Having survived the heat wave in the Northeast this week, the choice of an image for my card was an easy one… but I thought I would add a twist with a different take on the meaning of “hot”! There are moments when it feels like it is over 100 degrees… right in my own body!  For my card, I chose “I’m Sweating You” by Saturated Canary.  Krista’s images are a lot of fun to color.

     Since this challenge is about DIES, I used three… two Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork dies and one sun die from La La Land Crafts. It comes with two cool cloud dies as well.  My image is colored with copics, YR’s, peachy R’s and some E’s for shading. The fan is colored with Cs. So sorry I did not note colors…again, I am experimenting with mixing colors and I got lost in a pile of copics!   I spray glued the cheesecloth behind the image and sprinkled Glamour Dust on  before attaching to card base. The design paper is MME “Be Happy” and love this Perfect Match cardstock from PaperTrey Ink called “Smoky Shadow”. It is a dark brownish/grey – almost black but not.. works so well with this paper pad!

     The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Kaisercraft… pretty peachy browns. Pearl spray from my stash…..The image and die cuts were blinged up with some Diamond Stickles and clear Swarovksi crystals… especially the little bead of sweat on her forehead!
      Hoping you will join us for this week’s challenge. It is a great chance to take out all those cool dies and add them to your creation. Look forward to seeing what you create. Here is a little inspiration from the Stamptacular Sundays Design Team... Have a great day!  Thanks, as always, for your kind comments.
