I did have a chance to make a card in honor of our Queen for the Day before I hooked up with Lynn this morning. Anne Ryan is the Queen for the Day challenge hostess on SCS, and she chose Sallie, aka hobbydujour, as this week's Queen. Sallie has a fabulous gallery, and I was surprised to learn that she's only been stamping about a year. As challenge rules dictate, we are to select a card to case from the Queen's gallery. I chose her latest upload called Birdie. I changed colors and images using this classy and elegant image by Rubbernecker. The background collage stamp is also by Rubbernecker. As I wrote in my post on SCS, this image reminds me of our QFTD challenge hostess, Anne. I've never met Anne, but I can tell that she oozes class and elegance as does this image.
The image is watercolored with Pale and Perfect Plum reinkers and watercolor brush, except for the skin tones on her face for which I used Copic markers. I added Martha Stewart glitter to her collar for some added pizzaz.
This next card I made for the Free for All challenge on SCS to use snowflakes and pearls in our design. I really wanted to do something out of the ordinary and came up with the idea of using a black embossed background accented with gold Perfect Pearls. My friend, Em (aka StampMuse) sent me this terrific gold metallic paper, and the angel image and sentiment are both by Rubbernecker. I colored her with Copic markers and added gold glitter to the top of her wings.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you've had a terrific Saturday!
