CTS#124



Hi, everyone!!!


Oh, boy, am I excited to bring you this post!!!!   Yep, Chrissy, from CTS, asked me to be Guest Designer for the week!!!  Those of you who follow my blog will know that I LOVE to play the CTS game, so how could I not say YES!!!!  Thank you so much to Chrissy and her DT for giving me this opportunity to be guest designer - what a great honour!!!!

So this is the great sketch Chrissy has for us this week:




...and this the card I have made:





I've done my bg with washi tape strips and Spiced Marmelade DI and added some paint splatters.
Flower stamp and die from Verve.  Coloured my flower with a koki pen and added some shine with 3D clear Gloss.
Sentiment computer generated.  Sentiment banner dies from Verve.
Leaves stamps from PTI.
Arrows cut with Tim Holtz chevron die and given some shine with 3D clear Gloss.
Added two sequins and black plastic dots and it was done!!!!

Congratulations on your GD gig. I have visited your blog only a few times, but have been so impressed with your talent. And, you do leave the sweetest comments. So, they are lucky to have you. This week's sketch looks so very challenging to me, and you totally Nailed it! Love those diagonal stenciled lines especially.

Congrats on your GD gig over at CTS! Excited for you, and hope I have the chance to play along with you. Sweet, sweet card! Love the 'stripes' and the splatters. And that little flower is just about the sweetest thing ever. Fun card! Bev

Congratulations on your GDesigner assignment. Easy to see why you were asked! Love this one, might just be my fav of all the cards you've done. At first thought you had done sprays with a stencil. Fascinated to read the how-tos. It really sings with the brilliant color stripes. Love the way you've interpreted the sketch. Great work on this one (well, it always is! But this one really shines to me). TFS & Hugs
