SC323: Just Chillin’

Hi all!

we are going to float away here in northern VA – i know lots of other areas have had this storm over the last couple days including louisiana – they even had tornadoes which was UNHEARD OF when i was growing up down there.  YIKES!  it is supposed to get really bad here this afternoon – and not only is hubby NOT here he is actually going to be attempting to drive home in it from PA EEK!

anyone else on Pinterest?  it is a neat little site – i am constantly wandering around on the internet and looking up things that interest me.  Pinterest allows me to put a virtual pin in something i see that i like and then i can refer back to it.  i can also look at other people’s pins and they can look at mine – cool.

I am back with another TIOT card for ya for Susana’s Custom Art & Card Design!

I started out by creating my own background paper – the idea is from Technique Junkies (Wet Stencil technique (TJNL, August 2009). I started with white paper. Next i chose a Crafter’s Workshop Stencil – Cosmic Swirl and some homemade Shimmering Mists using Perfect Pearls and reinkers. I wanted to make my own mists because i wanted lots of shimmer but i wanted the colors to be fairly light. i laid my stencil down and misted lightly with pale purple and yellow mists, then i picked up the stencil and laid it mist side down on the paper, pressed and lifted back off. very cool i think! the paper is from one of the DOZENS of 6×6 paper pads Susana carries – so perfect for cardmakers! i made the bow using my Bow Easy – can’t imagine being without it! and then added two Prima Cottage Blooms – have you seen the new stuff Prima has come out with this year? Check out the ones in the store already! I finished off the punched border with a few perfect little pearls done with the Lilac Pearl Pen.

Now my adorable image – Just chillin’ from the latest SCACD release by Victoria Case for SCACD – the Sweet Meets Sassy Collection. I colored her with Copics of course and added some glittering Spica details here and there. isn’t she just devine?!?!?!?

i hope y’all have a fabulous day!

  1. She is terrific!!! I like purple & yellow together, so I like how this turned out. I usually get a muddled mess of gray, so I like how the sprays kept their own colors.

    Btw, I got my punch the other day. Thanks so much!
