Touch a Star


Happy Sunday everyone! I had played a bit on Friday with some techniques from the current Technique Junkies Newsletter but didn't get cards assembled until today as we were gone all day yesterday. So I want to share one with you!

This little girl from the Sweet Child of Mine stamp set from FireCracker Designs by Pamela is so intriguing to me. I just love her face the look of wonder. This time I colored her with Prisma Watercolor pencils and made it a cool evening so she can be outside with the stars.

The layer with the stars was made using the Gesso Off technique and then the layer with the cuttlebugged lines was made using the AI Foil technique. Both pretty easy but make great background pieces! I did several of the AI Foil ones so watch for those to appear throughout the month also. I did find that it was hard to attach to the AI Foil pieces so had to break out the red line tape circles for that part!

Funny now looking at this card it is simply layers there isn't any embellies on it at all! No ribbon either! It doesn't seem to need anything and is quite pretty IRL.

Some other news for you all too!

It is NOT too late for you to get your art in for the Design Team call at FCD! You have until Friday! The term has changed to a 6 month term making it a little easier for you to fulfil your commitment to the Design Team. You DO NOT have to have experience to be on the Design Team just do quality work and share your creations in as many places/ways as you can! FCD was my first team and I encourage you all to try - I was so surprised to have made it and I have had such a great time. I have learned much from my fellow DT members. So come on what are you waiting for! Go {here} to get all the details!


hugs,
