OSAAT DT CARD - CHALLENGE NO 174 - ANYTHING GOES.

Hello peeps and buddies everywhere!!  How amazing is blogging, I have friends all over the world and I feel that I know so many of you even though it is only 'virtually'.  And.....  I am really enjoying myself - lol!!!

Anyway I had better get down to my next card before I really go orf on a waffle (well I am on Planet Susie!!).  It's very vague and airy fairy on my planet, and trivia of any sort is welcome, we just don't want anything too serious here!  We can do serious later.

For my DT card at OSAAT - Challenge no 174, I was given a gorgeous digi from Floppy Latte to use and I printed it out on some turquoise card that has a shaded effect, going from dark to light.  This shows up a lot better in real life but it is a gorgeous card to print on. 


I printed the second one onto Neenah card and coloured the flowers then fussy cut them out - boy were they bloomin' fussy - and deeeecoupaged (sorry I just cannot resist) them onto the frame.  I cut the centre out of the card so that I could pop the sentiment underneath.  The frame and sentiment are then matted onto a piece of turquoise card and then centred on one of my favourite papers!!  My snippets card was made using the little bit that was left over - lol!!

Ingredients
 
8" x 8" card blank
Digi Image - Simple Framed Flowers - Floppy Latte
Digi Sentiment - Ginger's House
Papers from stash - cannot remember where from!!
Rainbow Drops - Crafty Notions
Copic Markers
Versamark Chalk Inks - Aquatic Splash, Ocean Depth
 
After I had printed the sentiment I did my new 'thing' of using my special £1 holey sponge and 'pounced' some of the Versamark Chalk inks over the top.
 
I do hope you check out the One Stitch at a Time Blog (OSAAT)http://onestitchatatimechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/please-read-our-rules-1-can-enter-with.html to see what my teamies have made.  The challenge this week is Anything Goes, so I would really like to see some of your creations on there.  If you use a Stitchy Bear image you could win ALL the stamps we had to use in Challenge no 172 - that's about $20 worth.  You could still win digis to the value of $3 if you use a stamp from another company.   Well worth the effort ladies!
 
Thank you for stopping by - the birthday card will be on it's way shortly - please leave me a comment, if you have time, even my hubby loves reading them!  Bless him.
 
Big hugs to you all out there!
 
SUE

  18. Hi, Sue! I LOVE LOVE LOVE visiting planet Susie, where everything is "airy fairy" LOL - your writing style always brings out the laughter in my heart. First of all, WONDERFULLY beautiful card. Can't believe how carefully you fussy cut those flowers! Wowser! The shading is beautiful for sure. Sue, thank you for your package which arrived today! I was very surprised with the large glue and syringe and great instructions. But mostly, I treasure the card! Fabulous design, and I carefully touched every part of it, and marveled at the intricate details on the gears, charms and die cut layers. Wonderful card! I would love to send a card back, BUT... SOB! there is no return address! How could you let that happen, Queen Susie? Thank you for your thoughtfulness. Please email me your snail mail addy? dellis70@tampabay.rr.com. Thank you, Sue! hugs, de
