Yes today is my second post, please scroll down to see my Lollipop Crafts challenge post.
As you are reading this, I should be celebrating Renate's birthday with her, Zach and a few of our close friends at Gyu-Kaku in Old Town Pasadena. I made her a card using one of her favorite stamp lines, Gorjuss Girls. I used Rose, who I purchased along with a few others, from All That Scraps. The dp was from the same paper pad stack (DCWV - The Rustic stack). I love this paper pad and have been waiting to cut into it. This was the perfect occasion. I used a sketch from my blogging friend, Kim Yu to help me bring some fun elements to the card.
I am really pleased with how it turned out. I wanted to go with a warm color palette and I think I achieved it with the yellows, blues, browns and oranges and touches of white. What do you think?
I paper pieced her dress and did some fun affects to it. Yes, I used a couple Copic markers to add the folds but if you look closely you might be able to see that I added dimension to the dress. No? Well here are a couple side views...
|Where the folds are drawn in I used a hockey stick embossing tool |
to create the folds on the paper to make the dress look and feel
|Here's a better angle. See how the paper dips where the "folds"|
lay? I also layered it twice (only because I ripped the first one
while trying to work the paper) because it gave it more
dimension and poof once I added the second layer. :)

Here is a close up of the other side of the card. Thought you'd like to see the details. :)
The Voice and Hawaii 5-O are on my lists to watch tonight. Hoping to get home to watch at least H5O. On a sad note, just wanted to say RIP Whitney Houston. You are going to be missed, but never forgotten.
