When is the last time you checked out Ashley's blog and took on her brain wave challenge? Well, it's time to do it. Hurry, pop right on over there and take a peek. You can click on her name just above this post and "poof" you are there.
This is my card for this week's challenge.
I used markers on my image and then stamped it. I then watercolored the image with watercolor crayons. They are so easy to use. I love 'em. Today I found my good Stampin' Up! brushes, so it was such a happy day! I had been using some cheapo yucky ones and the results were not so good and they were so hard to use. Ahhh, now I'm happy. lol I then used Itty Bitty Backgrounds around the image, and colored the edge of it with the Bravo Burgundy marker. I then mounted it on the scallop trim created with the new SU! scallop edge punch which will be available in August. You're gonna love it! It's awesome. I used both the Bravo Burgundy and the Chocolate Chip scallops and punched through all the layers with my trusty crop-o-dile, which added more dimension as well as making the green visible through the holes. I stamped the sentiment with versamark and embossed with white ep. I mounted that low on the card and then added the chocolate grosgrain ribbon, being sure to leave just a sliver of the green showing between them. I like the result. What do you think of it?
