Well we kicked off Monday with a bit of excitement didn't we now?
I am just completely blown away by your supportive and encouraging comments on yesterday's post. Could you guys be any sweeter?! I'm so very grateful for the love that exists in this hobby. You guys truly feed my soul.
Enough with the mush mush let's get back to celebrating. Seriously, grab the glowsticks and the jello shots we've got more partying to do.
I'm ecstatic to share that I'm a
You know I love challenges, especially the CAS sort. My favorite thing about CASology, besides the endless talent on their DT, is that it's up to you. Yes, how you interpret the challenge is completely, entirely 100% up to you. Talk about empowering.
I'm so grateful they asked me to join in on the fun!
This week the Cue Card is
Now, you know we have honest conversation around here. Nobody has time for typing things that aren't real, or at least I don't, and I'm sure you don't want to read it either. My honest reaction when I saw this cue card was "Are you kidding me?!" Somebody grab the Ben and Jerry's and pop in Sarah McLaughlin because I'm going to cry.
Don't get me wrong Vintage is beautiful. I think lace and elegance and distress and layers upon layers upon gobs of layers and then one more layer. But just one. Let's not over do it. As you can tell all of that is not me. Maybe it's not you either but then I remembered "how you interpret the challenge is completely, entirely 100% up to you."
Then the sun shined, the birds chirped and I think I even heard Ariel singing in the background (Ahhhhh Ahhhhh) Don't act like you didn't just sing that in your head. You did. There's no shame here.
I realized it is exclusively my interpretation and here's what I came up with :)
I used the Strawberry Girl from Lia Stampz Vintage Girls collection. She's a 50's girl and I love her! I colored her with copics and added a bit of detail with my white gel pen. I fussy cut the whole image out. On my white card base I added some shadows before adhering my image with dimensional adhesive. That perfect sentiment came from Simon Says Stamp Labeled With Love.
Awhile ago I made a card with the same image and sent it to a friend of mine. The only difference is I did some no line watercoloring with it. I've never shared it before and I thought you might like to see how different the look is based on your coloring medium.
I much prefer the copic one but I heart a black outline :)
Okay it's your turn now! Head over to the CASology Blog and show us your vintage!
Thanks again to the team for inviting me along :)
