Eye Candy

Hi again stampers! So I have a minute before I go to bed and I wanted to show you a card I made with my new pre-order goodies that I got the other day. I splurged on next day air shipping so I could stamp before the Easter holiday...and I wonder why I don't make much money doing this....hahaha. SO, now with all the color renovation excitement I didn't want the new Summer Mini catalog to be forgotten! This card was based on a picture of a card made my Sheli herself that they showed at Leadership! I'm totally embracing the vintage look....changes all over the place for me...vintage, new colors...who am I????? :-) I hope you like it, I think it's pretty!

Stamp set: Elements of Style (summer mini)
Cardstock: Kraft, soft suede, rose red, bashful blue
Ink: various for watercoloring with an aquapainter
Accessories: bashful blue taffeta ribbon, hodgepodge hardware (vanilla), soft subtles brads, small oval punch, bigz beautiful butterflies die

This card uses a lot of elements but was really fun to make. I also used the new LOG CABIN SMOOCH SPRAY (totally love that name). Holy cow is it fun and comes in 4 colors. This one is brown and has just a hint of shimmer. I found I liked to spray it in the corner the best. There is also a lot of sponging and distressing going on. The butterfly is from the beautiful butterflies die (not the cute little embosslit) and the stamp set is the new ELEMENTS OF STYLE. It's amazing! Hope you liked it and if you're uneasy about the color change this card is guaranteed to make you feel a little better, no?

Happy Stamping!
