Hi Everyone! Time for a Sketch challenge with Just Us Girls, JUGS27! Kristin created this fun sketch for all to play with this week. I would like to welcome Sue Lelli as our April Featured Designer :) This will be Tracey's last challenge as a JUGS DT member, as she will be stepping down. Please take a second & head on over to Tracey's site for further details & leave her some love! :) Thanks so much Tracey for all the weekly inspiration! :)I wanted to share not only my card but this beautiful Cherub statue in her entirety with you :)Here is a closer view of my Blessings card:The elegant Gina K Designs Blessing sentiment says it all! You may know that I work as a Registered Nurse in the Operating Room. All I am going to share is that after seeing what I have seen for the past 11 years in the OR, I feel so Blessed in so many ways!!! When my co-workers gripe or as I am making that drive to work at 3 a.m. in the morning for an Emergency case, I count my Blessings for my health, family & friends (& papercrafting supplies)!
When I saw this fabulous sketch that Kristin created for this week's JUGS27 challenge, showcasing a beautiful flower sprouted in my thoughts :) It's not always easy to catch the shimmer of the Glimmer Mist when photographing but if you look closely or click the photo to enlarge, you can see the shimmer :)
Here is a quick tutorial on how I altered this beautiful flower:
1 paper flower (purchased at local craft store), heat gun, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Ranger Tim Holtz Antique Tea ink, sponge dauber
This photo shows what the flower looked like before I glammed it up!
This is super easy! Hold paper flower, spray Glimmer Mist, Heat with heat gun. Repeating the spraying step as many times as you like until you get the desired color! Using sponge dauber, apply distressing ink.
Before & After Photo:
What do you think? What I love about it is you can spray a plain white flower with any color of Glimmer Mist!
That's all for today! I hope you join along in the fun with Just Us Girls & give this tutorial a try! If you make a flower like this, please feel free to email me a link to your creation OR simply email a photo to me!! Would love to see what you do! Have a very Happy Easter Sunday if you celebrate & if you don't celebrate, hope you enjoy your weekend! Be Sweet!
