Sweeping Through

Sweeping Through - This is my DT card for Creative Card Crew. Our sponsor for this challenge is Scrapping Center. A great place to get your crafting goodies. Not only for paper crafting, but for all crafts.

Our challenge for this fortnight is NO DESIGNER PAPERS. I didn't realize how dependant I am on my papers to formulate my projects. I found myself just staring at my image, thinking what colors do I use?

My image is Saturated Canary's "Sweet Oklahoma." Sweet Oklahoma was created by Krista as a fund raiser, to help my daughter rebuild after she lost her house in the recent tornado that struck my town of Moore Oklahoma.

The fund raiser is now over, but the image is really cute and a great one to have in your collection.

I colored her with Copics and added Stickles to her bow and Diamond Glaze to her boots. You can't see the Diamond Glaze on the boots, but they feel like plastic boots.

I put some white ink on my brick embossing folder, then ran some navy card stock through it . I like the effect. Without the ink, the design got lost in the depth.

I finished of the card with a ribbon, tied with my Bow Easy and a charm attached. The dots on top of the image are Dew Drops.

  1. Stunning card Mari...beautiful colouring and you've done a brilliant job with no papers!

    And that's so generous of Krista and a lovely thought too. Hope your daughter is doing ok? My friend (in Noble) has been volunteering with her daughter at one of the churches and she said seeing all the distruction is just heartbreaking. It's going to take so long to rebuild and so many things that can't be replaced. So sad. Thinking of everyone involved.

    Anyway...thank you for joining us over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge. Good luck.
