SWIRLS CHALLENGE AT WHOOPSI DAISY

Hey everyone!  Writing to you from vacation where I have one of the slowest internet connections ever – tried to watch a 5 min. video on You Tube and it took about 15 mins!  Needless to say, very annoying.  So, if you notice my posts are a wee bit late some days this week, you will know why.  I am however, having a great time – yay!Smile

We have a NEW CHALLENGE for you at WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE and it is SWIRLS.  You have until noon EST on Sunday, June 24 to come play along with us at WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGE.  While we’d LOVE to see you use an image from WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP, it is not required to enter.  So, come on over and show us those swirls!
 
For my card, I chose to go a bit outside my normal comfort level.  First, although I colored this gorgeous WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP image from Sheet 353 with Copics, Atyou Spics and Sakura sparkle pen, I used very little color as I wanted to keep the image mostly white.   Also, for the first time in a while, I did not use a sketch, not even a loosely based one, did the layout how I felt is should go.  I used Bazzill, and Taylored Expressions CS and DP from Basic Grey.  The die I used is a new Memory Box die and I used an embossing folder/die (called a “Designable”) from Marianne Crafts.  I had never used this before and I think it came out so cool.  I cut my image with scissors, added a sentiment from Unity which is cut with Amuse die and some Prima bling added for additional sparkle.  Sure hope you like it!

Additional Challenges:
SPEEDY AND FRIENDS – vintage

PAPER PLAYTIME – anything goes with sentiment
SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW – a bit of brown
TRULY MADLY CRAFTY – monochrome
THE SHABBY TEA ROOM – photo inspiration plus crystals/pearls
