Playing Cards with Michele

I am so excited!  I have wanted to play cards with Michele from I Card Everyone for quite a long time. 

Last week I saw the perfect card and technique.  I sent Michele an email and this morning into early afternoon we chatted and today is the day we play!

The card that caught my attention was from Anita's Blog My PaperCraft World. 

Time Out DT 61R

 Isn't it just a perfect happy card?   I need a birthday card for a friend so here is my take on Anita's card.

I used a mask and the Clarity Brushes to create my inked space with SSS Teeny Bikini and Lipstick Red. I wanted the center just a bit darker than the outer portions of the oval. I chose to constrain my inking to a very defined shape to add a bit of formality to the card.  I added gold touches with  Heidi Swap Color Shine, Gold flat PPP sequins that I made much smaller with a hole punch and added some tone on tone raised dots with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carnation Pink.  As a last touch I added a little bit of gold embossing around the edges of my card base to match the embossed sentiment.

Now, if you haven't come from I Card Everyone please head over to Michele's blog and see what she's created.  I am excited to see too, as I am sure it is fabulous...she is so smart in her interpretations and it shows in her creations.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
