Something Borrowed

I made it home from Oklahoma City last night where I had a great Copic certification class on Friday and a special visit with Jenn, Beate, Sharon and Angel. After dinner with my family and putting two tired (and dare I say cranky) cherubs (who stayed up way too late at a church sleep over the night before) to bed, it was time to get inky for this week’s CPS Sketch. A little decompressing after a busy day, if you will!

Yes, I took some liberty the sketch. Yes, you are allowed to do that. The point is to have fun and try new things. This one stretched me in ways I didn’t know were possible.

I call this ‘something borrowed’ since that fits my intended purpose for this card, and I had used an old library card for the base of my main image layer.

The library card and the white flowers are both accented with Smooch Spritz for a splattered shine. Very, very sparkly. That’s a good thing. 🙂

My guest design month with Want2Scrap is coming to a close in a few days, but I’ll continue using their pretty bling. The rhinestones on this project were all silver and accented with a R59 Copic Marker. I didn’t bother with the airbrush because the clear adhesive backing would have turned red, as well as the rhinestones. I just use the brush tip of my marker and colored lightly over the top of the sets of rhinestones – super quick.

I’m happy to have this card finished (with exception to the sentiment inside), and I will be even happier when it hits the mailbox on Monday morning.

Have a beautiful, restful Sunday.
