Try It Out Tuesday # 19 -- Follow Your Heart



Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday :) Today is Tuesday, which means its another Try It Out Tuesday challenge over at Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was to lots of flowers in our image, papers, and embellies. For my card, I decided to ink up this adorable image from the brand new line by Victoria Case, available exclusively at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. This particular image is called Follow Your Heart. Isn't she just a cutie patootie :) I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamped her onto PTI cardstock and colored her with copics. I added Diamond Stickles to the balloons, and Diamond Glaze to her eyes (this gives the eyes a really nice, shiny effect). I then inked around my image with SU's Bashful Blue ink.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2, out of SU's Apricot Appeal. I layered Pretty in Pink on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV's Nana's Nursery Baby Girl line. I then adhered my image to my cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals. For some finishing touches, I added Primas and orange rhinestones. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Make sure to stop by the Store Blog to see the amazing creations of the rest of Susana's DT. Have a wonderful day :)

Big Hugs, Christine :)
