The heart shapes were cut with Sizzix Dies as were the little flowers. I used shrink plastic, small beads, rhinestone, pearl and Scribbles 3-d paint for the little accents.
I use the Scribbles brand puff paint and glitter paint found with the fabric paint at Michaels and JoAnns. I love Stickles and I get more tubes all the time. I used the 3-d paint on the butterflies here.
I finally bought some Ranger Distress Crackel Paint a couple of weeks ago. I used that on the chipboard #4 and then I painted on a couple layers of Glitter Mod Podge . I used a piece of cardboard as the base for the photo that I distressed and painted with a wash of white and then pink acrylic. I like this effect.
Below are The card and purse that I was getting ready to comment on when my computer froze up. The card is one that I made using the Verve stamps that I got from Julie over at Poetic Artistry for her 2 year Blogaversary. She celebrated by holding a drawing and all we had to do was leave a comment on her Blog of what we discovered last year that we loved. Or something that we were thankful for. Well I have a ton to be thankful for, First off, for having a heart attack . I have a different attitude about life. Yes folks, what they say is true. What doesn't kill ya does make you stronger. I havent had a ciggarette or glass of wine since Feb.3rd and other than gaining more weight than I'm comfortable with, I am healthy and extremely happy. Anyway back to the contest. out of 500 plus comments mine was chosen. What fun. I won a bunch of Verve and Cats Pajamas stamp sets, paper, some stickels and cardstock ,both shimmer white and designer paper and a few other goodies. This has been a great prize month for me. Wow! I made this card using the paper and one of the Verve stamp sets.
The second item is a purse that I made a while back. I made it to take with me when all of us girls went out to see Tina Turner back in October. I love it.
