Markers Down!

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! Here is a card I created for this week's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG100 - Markers Down!

This challenge is brought to us by the fabulous Kim, our Trendsetter of the Week. You all know how much I ADORE my you can imagine my dismay when I saw what Kim had in store for this week. Well, I put on my big girl panties (lol) and pulled out my much neglected SU! inks and an Aquapainter and got to work.

I've long wanted to create a white on white card, and I thought this challenge was the perfect opportunity to do just that. I stamped the gorgeous sweet pea image from Sweet Pea (Currently on sale for just $5.95!!) from There She Goes in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Classic White and watercolored it with my inks and Aquapainter. I then cut out and embossed the panel with Petite Oval Nestabilities.

I embossed another panel of Neenah Classic White with the Textile Embossing Folder and then matted it with yet another white panel. All of the layers were then popped up with foam tape on a white card base. Super dimensional but super simple. After attaching the focal panel, again with foam tape, I added five of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to either side of the panel. I love the simple elegance, with a pop of sparkle, these lend to any project.

We would LOVE for you to play along with us!!
