I decided I needed another entry on the blog... I've not had a whole lot of creative mojo going for me this whole weekend and that's not good since I've got 5 swaps due this month! I'm hosting a recipe swap with the ladies I work with, so I need to work on my two spots for that - fortunately one of them is designed but I haven't thought of the other one. Then I have a Christmas cookie swap due and I bought this way gorgeous paper by Basic Grey and now I can't remember what I was going to do with it. I still need to make my notebooks for the swap I'm hosting. I've got it thought out, just nothing made!
Anyway, earlier this year I hosted a Bella swap and I had approximately 50 participants. I made each participant a card (you saw one on an earlier posting - Bellarina with the pink glittery tutu) and those that took multiple spots I, of course had to do different designs. This is one of the cards that I did. I love how it turned out! Brocade Blue is one of my favorite blues and the black card stock really allowed the detail of the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls show up. I used my Brocade Blue marker to color her dress and then I used a silver gel pen to highlight the flowers. I colored her wings with Bashful Blue and then I used holographic highlights embossing powder to make the wings sparkly. I used my Coluzzle envelope template to create the scallop edge and then finished it off with a bit of bling. I hope you like it.
