I decided that I am going to start doing more with this blog!! Hopefully you will be as excited as I am!
To start with I decided to do a Challenge that the Paper Craft Crew is doing and that is the Color Challenge!!
Here is the challenge I worked on today:
My card uses one of my favorites from the Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up!, it is called Picture Perfect. My Dad used to feed the Hummingbirds in our front yard, it was very full of plants that framed our front walk very nicely.
He would stand there for quite a while and when the Hummingbirds would come to drink from the feeder, he would put his finger under the feeder for the birds to rest on. It took a while for them to grow comfortable with him there, but he finally got them to land on his finger!! I would watch from the window and wish I was the one out there!
Ever since then I have had a LOVE for Humminbirds! So that leads me to this post, I wanted to use the stamp set Picture Perfect since it has them!
Here is my card:
The base of the card is Blackberry Bliss, the next layer is Smoky Slate with Marina Mist which I ran through the Big Shot using the embossing folder Zig Zag. I then brayered the Tea Lace Paper Doilies using Old Olive ink, I then put versamark over that and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I like how it’s shiny, don’t you?
I cut out a thinlit of Blackberry Bliss using the Deco Labels, colored a piece of Dazzling Diamond Glitter Paper using the Blackberry Bliss, then set it using clear embossing powder after running over it with my Versamark again.
Stamped the Hummingbird using Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate and Old Olive. put a Rhiinestone for his eye, and then for the coup de grace (sp?) I went over the entire image with the Wink of Stella!! It is so pretty and shiny in person! And the texture makes you want to fell it!
So, I am done with my first Challenge in a LONG time! How do you think I did? I’m excited for next time! I wonder how I’ll do in the Sketch Challenge!
Make sure you check back in to see how I did, and I would love some feedback on what you like or don’t like!
Thanks for stopping by!
