SC315 & TIOT: water beauty

good morning!

i hope you are all having a good week!  mine has been BUSY!  i think i have spent MOST of it in my car BLECH!  i went all over creation trying to find the cricut gumpaste – Ms no longer carries cake stuff and joanns doesn’t carry the gumpaste.  i finally drove all the way out to AC Moore and got lucky – i bought the last 2 they had.  they assured me they would be continuing to carry it thank goodness.  then running all sort of errands yesterday SHEESH!  we got a little snow but not really enough to be all that much fun.  i am looking forward to sticking around the house today with the exception of a trip to the post office.

******************************

don’t forget it is a great time to do some shopping – i have the entire store 33% off right now!!!!  i need the space and i need to get rid of all my inventory as i have not been focusing on the store anymore.

Today is TIOT for Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design – i used the Sketch challenge from SCS for this one.  we have been doing open challenges for TIOT – meaning we can do whatever we want 🙂 FUN! i colored up this stunning stamp by Carmen Medlin – Pearl Princess – she is part of the Reflection’s set. This is a truly gorgeous set of women!!! When you buy the full set you also get TWO free accessory stamps!
my patterned paper is from Gypsy Sister by Kaisercraft – i LOVE the flocked damask pattern! Susana carries the most amazing array of 6″x6″ paper pads – this way i can collect them ALL!!! i tied a nice big double bow with sheer ribbon using my Bow Easy – never thought something so simple could be so incredibly USEFUL. really a must have for ANYONE who ever needs a ribbon now! I enhanced the bow with a chipboard embellishment from my favorite Maya Road mini Decorative scrolls set and a flower from an all white collection – these are great because i can easily custom color them for any project i have! Susana carries a BUNCH of all white selections for just that! i quickly mixed up my own pearl mist using Perfect Pearls, water and a bit of reinker in a mister bottle and gave the scroll and flower a generous mist – PERFECTION!

I colored my gorgeous mermaid lady with Copics and did some highlighting with Spica Glitter pens – still my favored choice when adding glitter to a stamped image. Try as i might i could NOT get the shimmering goodness of the scroll and flower to show up in the pics 😦

NOW if you want to check out more purely glittering goodness you MUST check out the 6×6 paper pads from best creations susana just uploaded. the pictures DO NOT do it justice – i guarantee when these arrive at your house you will be floored at the amazing beauty of these papers!

 

 

***For any of my readers who live in this area (western Loudoun County) we will be having a help-us-eat-cake party sunday 4-8.  let me know if you would like to attend and i will send instructions!***
