Hi Blogger Friends,
Been a while since I was able to create. First, I had decided that until I organized my scrap room, I would not let myself create, then the weekend, which is designated together time for Bob and I, and yesterday he had to have tests to check if he is in his 5th year (a huge milestone) of remission from esophogeal cancer...and the doctor says things look fine...happy dancing...did a few biopsies, which we will get results from, but it's looking good!!! Pray for us, please! Thanks. I'll let you know when we get the results officially.
Now...on to my card for today. This card is for 2 challenges:
1. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - MMSC41 - found here: http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/; and
2. Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge - CC258 - found here: http://http//www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=480558
I used a digital stamp which was created by Christine Dark of Sketchingstamper digi-stamps. I colored it with watercolor pencils, then spritzed it with Shimmer Spray, which I should have done first, as it made the color run a little, but I think it's still ok. Then I cuttlebugged the Soft Suede cs with one of my Asian folders, which I had inked with gold ink with my brayer. Then I sprinkled that with gold detail embossing powder and set it with my heat gun. The flower cuttlebugged panel is another of the Asian folders. I just love these! I used gold paint pen around the edges of my main image panel and also to highlight the little stamens on my flowers. Added my gold embossed butterfly and sentiment, gold studs and Voila! Done! Phew! lol tfl
