Virginia's View Challenge #1


There was some great news announced over  at the Lilly Pad, some of our Flickr friends have become DT's and Virginia is now the proud owner of her own challenge, so make sure you go and check this out, and perhaps even participate!


Here is my interpretation of the inspiration photo:

Paper: card stock (PTI); watercolor paper; Neenah
Ink: various Glimmer Mist sprays; Versafine Onyx Black; Antique Linen distress ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (Untitled Hearts AC002; CL402)
Other: Stampin' Up Scalloped border punch; Embossing tinsel - Snowflake

I went with a CAS design and incorporated the colors into the frame made with 4 strips of watercolor paper sprayed with various shades of Glimmer Mist.  Of course there had to be a heart!  So I stamped the heart with some Antique Linen and embossed it with this gorgeous Snowflake embossing tinsel, it's so pretty.  I then inked the edges of the heart with some Antique Linen for a nice soft feminine feel.

I'm going to enter this into the current Hero Arts challenge as it fits in with the theme there too.

I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the wonderful comments I received on the card set I made, which you can see HERE in my previous post.  I'm so glad you liked it.

Wishing you a wonderful day!
