Supplies: ODBD "Refuse and Strength", SU "Inspired by Nature", SU River Rock and White CS, Nestibilities, Copics, silver half-back pearlsHi All, So much blogging to do, so little time!! This card is for a few challenges I've been stalking plus the Featured Stamper challenge over on SCS. This week the gorgeous gallery of JovialJudi is being featured! I chose to case her "Winter Chickadee" card because it was lovely, simple and was focused on a bird! I have been anxious to ink up the cute little bird from my new "You Will Find Refuge" set from ODBD! The scripture in this set is one of my favorites, I have a banner hanging in my bedroom that has the same scripture so I'm happy to be able to share it in cards to friends now! It also seemed to be a good image to use more of my new "SparklyFluff" product from Our Craft Lounge that I got at CHA. I used the white "Sugar" color. It's sprinkled on the little bird's breast. This is such pretty stuff, a great texture for cards. I only used it sparingly, but it still has a wonderful effect IRL. It's so soft and touchable!! Like velvet or fur, and it doesn't crumble off when you rub it! It also has a wonderful sparkle to it, not overwhelming but definitely visible at first glance and draws your eye to it. Not sure if you can see it here, click on the image for a closer look. Finally, the card needed to have some distressing somewhere on it to qualify for Paper Sundaes "Distress" Challenge. So I used the Rock and Roll technique on the sentiment to make it appear like it was fading. The challenges I combined using this card are: 1.) Featured Stamper #159 - Jovial Judy "Winter Chickadee" case 2.) Hope Stamps Eternal Cupcake Challenge #47 -- soft blues, beige cupcakes 3.) Quirky Crafts Challenge #22 -- Theme is "Cute" 4.) Paper Sundae #6 -- Theme is "Distress" And!! My happy news...!! I will be creating designs for The Frantic Stamper! I applied for this DT way back in April of last year!! Fran was busy building her new store warehouse so she could fill it with wonderful goodies!! (Check out the FranticStamper Blog to see photos of it and the DT announcement!!) So now that the new warehouse is ready, the DT has been put in place!! I was thrilled to get the email!! I am looking forward to working with my fellow DT members and all the loads of fun product!! The fun begins on March 7! TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
