Happy Tuesday & Happy Inauguration Day (for those of us in the states)!! Will you be watching the Inauguration on TV today? I will be, I'm so excited for a new change of guard so to speak & can't wait to see the new ideas & energy that Obama can bring :o) I have (crazy) friends down in DC today probably freezin' their butts off, but they're enjoying every minute of it! I can't take ginormous crowds like that & then the freezin' cold---no way, I'll watch from home thank ya very much, LOL! And soon I'll be off to the warmth of California---sunshine here I come, hee hee!
Today is "Try It Out Tuesday" for Susana's Custom Art & Card Design---this week's challenge is to use any stamp from Susana's store, any dp she sells and only 2 embellishments! Make sure and check out the store blog "Follow Your Heart" to see the rest of the DT's creations. If you'd like to play along just upload to PCP or SCS using the keyword "tiot2" so we can all see, 'kay!
For my card I used a new Karen Lockhart stamp called "Lilacs in Pitcher" which I love--reminds me of my mom & grandma cuz' they love lilacs! The lovely dp is from the Laura Ashley Traditional Collection and those beautiful gold embellies are Bella Baubles in "goldilocks"! I didn't put a sentiment on this one cuz' I might use it for a birthday or a thank you note--so I left the inside blank to stamp whatever sentiment pleases me! Of course using ONLY 2 embellies was hard for me, but sometimes simple is good & I think this turned out rather elegant! Whatcha' think?Just a quick close-up to show off the diamond glaze I used on the vase and Shimmerz (in iced lavender) on the flowers. Just a subtle but nice effect for this stamp!
I wish you all a wonderful day & I'm off to work on projects for this week!
