well i am a day late with my Frame Up challenge from Suzanne but better late than never! i had LOTS of fun with this little cutie!
I started with the sketch challenge and color challenge over on SCS. The patterned piece is from the new Basic Grey Kioshi collection – HEAVENLY colors and of course susana has it in the 6×6 pad!

I stamped the Latte Elisabeth Bell image with Memento black ink and colored her with copics. i used my sewing machine to stitch the frame around the mat. i am not the best at doing fancy corner stitching so i hid my corners with the adorable little Prima Tiny Tots – LOVE these little things – they come in a nice assortment of colors and are a perfect size!

i put on a few orange pezabling to accent the image.

As a finishing touch i did my own custom swirls using some Viva Decor Pens – I used the Lime Green Paper Pen & the Gold Glitter Liner. these are actually pretty easy to do. i draw the swirls on with a versamark pen and follow those!

if you have not taken the Viva Decor plunge i encourage you to JUMP IN!


better blog siggy

  3. I hope you are feeling better soon. I have taken the Viva Decor plunge and they are wonderful! I have had a little trouble with the Paper Pen, getting it to not have a tip on the dots, but the others are wonderful!

  4. Hey Marti, Hope you feel better real soon…you and Suzanne both!! I’m one of the people on SCS that left a comment about the classes…they’re the best!!! On to you though……

    This card is just darling!! Love what you did with the Viva Decor pens. I saw them on Suzanne’s blog and had to have some. I agree, they are so easy to use. Love your blog, now that I know where it is, I’m marking it! And, hat’s off to you both, love the magazine and pdf you two send….it’s wonderful with all the little hints and tidbits. I can hardly wait for the next issue. You two are doing a great job, keep up the good work, it doesn’t go unnoticed or appreciated.
