suzanne gave us girls a sketch to work with this week and i really liked it! all of the girls have done some wonderful things with it! i REALLY love the Collage Stamps susana has in the store from I Brake For Stamps so i used one of those for both my patterned paper and my focal image:
i have had an idea for the Crafter’s Workshop templates in the store for awhile and i finally got a chance to play with them a little bit on this card. i started with off white paper and stamped my collage image on it but did not cover it completely. Next i laid a crafter’s workshop template over it and misted LIGHTLY from a dsitance with Maya Mist – i think the effect is gorgeous! and quite simple too! also because i misted so lightly there was very little drying time for this! I also misted some of the white flowers susana has in the same way. It paired up perfectly with a piece from the Kraft Basic Grey pad.

My focal image is the same collage stamp which i cut out using a circle nestie and then mounted on the Eyelet Pendant. i added a prima pearl center to my flower grouping and then added some Viva Decor Cream Pearl Pen pearls around the Pendant. i finished up with 3 Robin’s Nest Diamond Drops at the top center of the card.
The Maya Mists and Crafter’s Workshop templates offer such a HUGE amount of creative freedom! i just LOVE them!
Susana is greatly increasing the altering fun over at the store and has created a section just for that so be sure to keep an eye on it as new products are added and we all stretch our creativity to the MAX!

In addition we have some FUN goings on tomorrow so we will surely SEE YOU THEN!!!
