Amber Swings...

PaperPlay Challenges DT

Hey Hey Everyone!  Today is my first challenge as a DT member for PaperPlay Challenges!!!  WooHoo!!!  I'm so excited to have joined this team.  We get to use all sorts of images on our projects and the challenges are a ton of fun.  This week the challenge is "Add Shine"...we're challenging everyone to come up with something shiny or sparkley (is that a word???).  Whateva!  Now... every girl loves a little bling bling here and there so this shouldn't be tooooo difficult for ya.

This week's sponsor is Just Some Lines and their digi images are just darling!  I don't usually work with a lot of digis so this was extra special fun for me.  I may just start using them a little more often!  I chose to work with 'Amber on a Swing' and she was so fun to color.  I just love how my card turned out.  I hope you like it too :-)

I told you she was darling!  I wanted to use some Spring colors so I chose these dp's by 'We Are Memory Keepers'.  I think they're actually Valentine papers, but the colors are so 'Springy' and the hearts are very subtle, so I think they are perfect for Spring.  So bright and vibrant...I love 'em.  I paired them with some cs by Bazzill that happened to match perfectly.

I cut and backed the image with some Spellbinder's Nestabilities dies.  All flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbon, lace, and pearls are from my stash. 
I added some 'Shine' to all of the flowers with some stardust Stickles.  Unfortunately, the camera didn't capture it well...but I assure you, it's there!  You can see a glimse of the inside of the card, which I decorated to match the front.  I left a nice big space for a hand written note.

I colored with a combo of Copic markers and watercolors with Ranger distress inks.  Here's the details...

Copics:  E000, 00, 11, 40, 42, 43, 44, 50, R20, Y21

DI's:  forest moss, weathered wood, tumbled glass, peeled paint, black soot, walnut stain, worn lipstick, shabby shutters

Make sure to stop by the PaperPlay Challenges blog.  You can get the details of the challenge so that you can enter.  And...you can see the fab projects that the rest of DT have to show.

You'll find this card for sale in my Etsy Store!

That's all I have for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed your stay :-)
