Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog DT: {Reverse} Spotlight Technique Sketched Roses Card

Hello, Crafty Friends!!!

I have some exciting news to share today!!! 
Kylie (owner of Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge Blog) invited me to join the fabulous Design Team for July-Dec 2015!

The Sponsor for this challenge is:

Prize is a $10 gift certificate

Here's my first project for Challenge #151: Anything Goes and I'm using a Sponsor's image (Sketchy Roses)...

I was going to make a card with the Spotlight technique, but the roses were too-cool-not-to-be-colored that I decided to do a {Reverse} Spotlight technique instead!!!

I printed the image twice and cut out a little tag from one of them. I inked the tag and added a little black bow.
After I colored the card with Tim Holtz's Distress Ink and Tsukineko's Walnut Ink, and splattered some ink, I added the little tag with foam tape. 

I have to admit I got a smudge on the top...if you didn't notice, ignore what you just read! =)
But I "don't even know" how I got it "dirty"...I blame my inky, here's a tip: wash your hands before touching your finished card, if you're messing with Distress Inks! =)
Maybe I'm the only one who didn't learn that lesson yet...

Hope you enjoyed my creation!
Don't forget to visit my crafty Team Mates' Blogs and link your projects for a chance to win the prize!

Decorate to Celebrate DT Challenge #103: 4th of July Projects

Hello, Crafty Friends!

It's time for Decorate to Celebrate today! You can create anything 3-D. 
You may link up your projects below before 11:59pm (EST) on Tuesday, July 7th to be eligible for YOUR chance to win a prize from (Rhonda) 

I made some projects for 4th of July...

Believe it or not, I didn't really have 4th of July-ish patterned papers in my paper stash (that I, I mean..."collect"...), so I had to look for free printables!
Here's where I found the papers I used: Hallmark.

I wrapped a upcycled plastic container with 2 different papers, filled with grass filler (green and yellow...'cause I grew up in Brazil!) and arranged stamped pinwheels (CTMH) and altered printables (taped on sticks).

And the card (inspired by the latest Cardabilities Sketch). I used my Cricut (Art Philosophy) to cut all pieces, added some doodling, glitter and star stickers.


Thanks for stopping by!
