New Challenge



Good morning everyone and Happy Tuesday :) I am so excited, today marks the start of our "Try It Tuesdays" challenges for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design Store. We have a new blog for Susana's Store which you can see Here. The new blog is called Follow Your Heart. Every Tuesday we will have a challenge for you. We'd love for you to participate in the challenges. You can upload your creations to SCS or PCP with the keyword "TIOT1" so we can all see. This week's challenge was to create a card/project using the colors of black, white, gray & a POP of one other color!

I used this gorgeous Rubber Romance stamp as my main image. I don't believe Susana has this image up on her store webpage yet, but if you are interested in it, send her an e-mail at susana@susanascustomartandcarddesign.com, I believe she has one in stock now and can get more. I colored the image with my copics, and then sponged my "pop" color (pink) around the image. I next created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's gray (I'm not sure of the name, but it's the darkest gray). I layered Basic Black on top of that followed by glittery white paper from DCWV. I then layered my design paper on top of that, which is by Amanda Blu. I added a black ribbon from Michael's, and then layered my image onto my cardstock with dimensionals. I used my new tag trio nesties to cut out the tag and I stamped "Merci" (from an old SU set) onto the tag with my pink ink. I added a pink rhinestone to the tag. Finally, I added black and white Primas and a black Making Memories brad to the image.

Make sure to check out Susana's new store blog to see what the rest of the DT has created. Also, make sure to join us over at Susana's PCP site Here. We will have weekly challenges and prizes and other good stuff, so come join us!

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you haven't done so already, make sure to leave a comment on This Post by midnight tonight (eastern time) for a chance to win my blog candy. I'll announce the winner tomorrow morning. I hope you all have a wonderful day :) I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Hugs, Christine :)

Hi Christine,
I love the elegance of the card and the sentiment on a tag makes her look like she's jetting some where :o)
