Prettie Wednesday

Two weeks ago, Julie challenged us to make something using chipboard. It's funny because chipboard is not one of my favorite things. . .mostly because I don't always know what to do with it. I decided to go simple and use a chipboard flower from the On Board Blossoms & Basics. I covered it with patterned paper that I got in one of my Paper Pretties boxes, then covered it in glitter. It's nice and sparkly. Since Julie just happened to be the person I was to mail my creation to and because last week was her birthday, I decided to make this a birthday card for her. I'm so sorry your package is late, Julie, but I hope you had a wonderful birthday anyway! Be sure and check the other Prettie Girl blogs to see their chipboard creations.

This week it's my turn to issue the challenge, and it is to WATERCOLOR! No fancy Copic or Stampin' Write markers. . .no blender pen either! :) Use an Aquapainter or brush with water to color your image. Have fun! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Full of Life (SU); Ink- Noir (Palette); Paper- Shabby Princess Collection (BoBunny Press); Accesssories- OnBoard Blossoms & Basics, key tag punch, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Dots Classy Brass template (SU), Prima flowers, rhinestone brad (Darice)
