At last! I'm finally joining in on the Midnight Madness Challenge over on "priscillastyles" blog (http://priscillastyles.blogspot.com/). Please go check it out because her sketches are awesome and her prizes fantastic! The upcoming sketch challenges in June will involve prizes of cold hard $$$$!!! Can't beat that!
Anyway here is my take on sketch #3 which I am squeaking in under the wire this week. I got the wonderful "Vintage Cutie" on this card from Itkupilli's Etsy Shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=7021557 ). I found a link to her shop on Priscillastyles' blog and decided to check out the free digital download she was giving away. One of the choices included 8 adorable vintage girls. They are all just as darling as this one.
The two purple papers are by Creative Imaginations and the metallic gold is from Archiver's. I used two CB folders to emboss the gold and the lavender background papers. I also embossed the gold flowers along the side. I heat embossed 7 times over the vintage girl with versamark and clear embossing powder to bring out the detail. The flower and leaf on the bottom of the card are accents from K&Company's Brianna Flowers pack. I added some sparkle with my clear Spica pen to the flower center and the leaf branch. The gold flowers were punched with an EK Success flower punch and the purple flowers behind them were punched with a Marvy flower punch. Finally, I added some pearls for the flower centers, punched a border with my EK Success Fleur de lis punch, added the punched out Fleur de lis' to 2 of the corners of my vintage cutie and finished it all off with a corner Sizzlits die. Oh, and the gold ribbon is something from my stash.
This was very different from anything I've done before but that's what these challenges are all about, right?
Thanks Priscilla! I'm sure I'll be back to play some more:)))
