I was asked by Diane, one of the DT members, at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturday Challenge Blog to be their Guest Designer and Sponsor this week. Of course, I was excited about the opportunity and gladly accepted!! Thanks, Diane! They are a fairly new challenge blog and a GREAT group of ladies! Every week it's something new...so hop on over there and play along!
Look at this BEAUTIFUL picture below! It is their color inspiration for the challenge this week! Wow, don't you just wish you were standing there right now? I sure do!!
I found myself just staring at all the wonderful colors in this photo. So many options to create a beautiful card!
I chose to use my new Autumn Digi just released earlier this week. She was just calling to be colored! LOL! I water colored her with my SU Markers. I have a tutorial for that HERE. I used SU Designer Papers for the background. The tan, burlappy (is that a word?) type of ribbon was a new purchase. I really like it! I was finally able to use my new Yellow Prima's with Pearls and sparkled them up with Lemon Ice Stickles. I used my MS Fern Punch and trimmed the image out with my Circle Scallop Nesties.
I was trying out something new on her too that I added last weekend to the store. Perfect Pearls from Ranger Ink. Ok, I'm sure many of you have these and have used them FOREVER. Well, I'm a newbie! I used them on the leaves, her dress and even her hair. I didn't want to get to adventurous and add water to them since she was water colored! I figured I would have a mess in no time at all! Before I get too crazy with these, if you have any tips or tricks please leave me a comment or shoot me an email. I'd appreciate the advice! :)
