I'VE BEEN CROWNED A PAPER QUEEN !!!

I am so excited to tell you that I have been asked to join the design team over at Paper Playtime. I will be a contributing designer (PAPER QUEEN) for them and can't wait to join in with the fun.   They have weekly challenges every Monday.  The project can be anything you want from a card, layout, 3D object, mini album, tag, gift bag... you choose, just make it with my very favorite ingredient PAPER...lol.  Sounds like fun huh?  The ladies that are on the design team are so very talented and I am just so happy to be included in the same design team with these extrodinary and gifted women. 

I was asked to create a project for this weeks challenge, and was so excited to do so here is what I came up with....The challenge theme this week was "Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain".  Use any type of water in your project.  Rain, dew, ocean, waves, ice cubes, frost, snow, bubbles, puddles, bath time, etc.

 I made everything for this card with my IMAGINE.... (except the base) I am still trying to figure out the imagine but my first impression is this machine will be AWESOME when I figure out how to "drive it".  lol....

All the background mats were made from the Imagine(using the Best Friends Cartridge)  and I also used the Paisley cartridge and figured how to "flood fill" the images to match my background mats.  Pretty cool huh?

I pop dotted the umbrella and added a brown ribbon and flower w/ pearl  to tie all the elements together.

The best part about this card is it only used 1 1/2 sheets of 12x12 card stock to make it . (YEAH !!).  I didn't have to figure out if this patterned paper matched that patterned paper, BECAUSE EVERYTHING COORDINATES so well together.  It was "EASY PEASY JAPANESEY" as my daughter likes to say.


The card also has little dots of Diamond Glaze on it to represent rain but my camera just didn't get them.

 Thanks for stopping by and taking a look







Until Next Time
