CAROUSEL DREAMS

Good Morning !! Hope all of you are having a marvelous summer. It is really getting hot here in Texas. It is that time of year for carnivals and fairs. This image is "Carousel Dreams" from the Elisabeth Bell Sampler Edition #5.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations Wednesday - On the Move
Cute Card Thursday = School's Out for the Summer


WOW! The DT was challenged this week to keep it clean and simple with one pop of color (image could be multi colored). This was difficult for me since I like lots of color. Finally, I decided on an embossed background and colored the little flowers with Copics and added little pearls with Viva Ice White Pearl Pen. The image is colored with Copics and I used a couple of Spica Glitter Pens for accent. The little pearl inside the punched flower is also made with Viva Ice White Pearl Pen. I just had to add a little more color so I used Kaisercraft Lavender Pearls in two of the corners of the image. I sprayed the entire card with Maya Mist Iridescent Pearl. The close up pic at the top of the blog shows how subtle the sparkle is. It really gives it a nice sheen.

Thank you for stopping by. Please stop by here and see the other DT projects.

ALSO, on the first Monday of each month there will be a MAKE A MESS MONDAY to showcase some of the new products on the market. So if you are looking for something new and fun to add to your projects check them out here. Susana has these products in stock and and there are videos on the blog to show you how to use them.

Hugs,
