So during my play time today, I decided to play along with the Whiff of Joy Challenge which was to use either of their 2 challenges....I went with the challenge of 3 design papers, 2 bling, and 1 flower! WOJ challenge is also looking for DT members so this is also my try-out for their DT! I would LOVE to be a member of their challenge blog because then my WOJ stamps would get more love and use!!! :) I also used the Quixotic Challenge which was to ink up an old stamp! Melinda blowing kisses was my VERY first WOJ stamp that I bought and she is still ranked toward the top of my favorites!
HERE<-- at EIO! Barb still has free shipping on orders over $50, just enter code 4SP9HD in the coupon box at checkout...and be sure to tell her I sent ya!
Here is a close-up of Miss. Melinda. She was colored with my Copics and Spicas. Diamond Stickles (bling 1) make her wings sparkle! I gave her a shadow with small dots (you can see this to the left of her). I idolize how Chris and Crissy both use this type of technique for shadowing/backgrounding so I wanted to give it a try. Mine turned out nothing like theirs....but I am going to keep practicing...maybe in a million years I might be able to do it like the girls!
Here is my hand created flower with a prima bling center (bling 2). I've seen many of my blogging friends use their MS punch on the edge of flowers which gives such a unique look. Thanks for the inspiration girls!
For my heart I used my heart nestie and then used a small Cuttlebug embossing folder. I really love the colors of this card...and I am sure you will see lots more Distress Crackle Paint on my blog in the near future! :)
I hope you have a great week!
