Ok, so here's what I created using the super cute Grace set:


I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers, using Crystal Stickles for her wings and White Opal Liquid Pearls on her skirt. I created the background paper (a sheet of Adirondack glossy paper made for alcohol inks) by using my Adirondack alcohol inks, blending solution, and applicator felt. When it was dry, I adhered it and a piece of coral burlap and crocheted ribbon to the card. I sprayed the whole thing with Iridescent Glitter Spray, added the image, sprayed the sentiment with the glitter spray, and tied it up with purple twine. I love how the glitter spray really changes the look of the card. It's so pretty! Of course, I adhered the sentiment with foam squares to pop it up off the card. I love dimension!

 See all that sparkly goodness?


I hope you are enjoying the hop thus far! Only two stops left, don't forget to comment on all US team blogs for a shot at the prize. :) Thanks for stopping by!
