Try It Out Tuesday #13 - Easter Wishes




Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday :) Today marks another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge over at Susana's, from Susana's Custom Art and Card Deisgn, store blog, Follow Your Heart. This week, our challenge was to create an Easter or spring card or project.

I decided to ink up this adorable image from the new Anki's Sweethearts Line, available exclusively at Susana's store. I chose this adorable Young Cathrine With Friends as my main image. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink (this truly is the best ink to work with if you use copic markers) and stamped it onto PTI cardstock. I colored the image with my copics (don't forget that Susana is now carrying Copic Bundles at her store), added Gold Liquid Pearls to the patch on her pants leg, and added some Shimmerz to the flower on her shirt.

I used last week's Basic Grey Sketch Challenge as my layout. My cardstock is SU (Certainly Celery, Barely Banana, and Pretty in Pink) and all design paper is by Basic Grey. I adhered my image to my SU cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals. I used my Martha Stewart Lace Doily Border Punch on the bottom. I have seen so many wonderful bloggers decorate the insides of their cards lately so I decided to do the same on this card. I used scraps, as well as my scalloped circle nestie to cut out the sentiment panel. I then placed Gold Geo Shaped Sparklers by Stampendous around the scalloped circle for some extra shimmer.

What do you think? Thank you so much for stopping by. Don't forget about the Elisabeth Bell blog candy. Check out the store blog HERE to enter to win.

Hugs, Christine :)
