ahhh VIVA

hi all!!!

almost to the weekend!  YAY!

before getting into my project for TIOT today i have one quick tidbit for you – a REALLY GOOD DEAL for you!  i have some misc goodies from the FANTASTIC new stuff Tim Holtz released at CHA.  i will not be stocking these items so i am putting them on sale for 20% off!!!!  there are very few of each here – some items i only have ONE of – so once they are gone they are gone.  i have the Texture Fades embossing folders, the new distress ink pads (so gorgeous) and lots of random ideology stuff!

Suzanne issued the DT a FABULOUS challenge this week – use Viva Decor – oh you don’t have to tell me twice!!! i have been obssessed with them since i first stumbled on them online just before CHA. My card today uses the Viva technique my daughter, Pezza (nickname), came up with for her recent video HERE:
I used this weeks sketch from SCS for my LO. The patterned paper is from Kaisercraft Hello Birdie – the whole pad is gorgeous! i m also lovin’ all the little chipboard goodies Susana got in and used a few here. i started by putting layer of diamond glaze on them. then sprinkled them with glitter. when that dried i put another layer of diamond glaze on top. I also used Diamond Glaze to adhere them to the card so i would have a good seal and then i filled in the flower centers and parts of the butterfly with kiwi pearl pen and the rest of the butterfly with Sunshine Yellow Gloss Gel – you can see the design underneath through the gel – i am lovin’ it!!! thanks susana for the idea!

i had a lot of fun with my main image panel. i used the Viva technique Pezza did in her video with two Viva Decor Gloss Gel pens – Magenta and Orange. These really give you a gorgeous soft background in nothing flat -just sponge them on! Next i stamped randomly with this way too cute little dandelion puff seed image – it is one of TWO bonus images from the exclusive Victoria Case Hearts & Hugs Summer Collection. i cut out the HI with my Plantin SchoolBook Cricut cartridge.
Have YOU taken the Viva plunge yet??? you will be SO glad you did! be sure to show us what YOU like to do with your Viva!
Head over to the SCACD blog to see what the other girls did!
