I'll keep this one short since I yapped so much on my last post! Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude Challenge 17 has it's 2 sponsored digi winners and Top 3 posted. Did you notice that- 2 sponsors, 2 winners! And Top 3 to boot! What a challenge site!
We also have our new challenge ready for you to start making your cards for- Challenge 18, Anything Goes, sponsored by Limited Runs! Pretty good, huh? Limited Runs has fantastic digis for you to create with. I made up Coral Mermaid. Isn't she cute? So, so fun to color and make into a card! Here she is:
To make Coral, I colored her with Prisma Pencils, cut her out, added pearls (WOC) and gems, then pop-dotted her onto a die-cut round colored with a sand castle background from free coloring pages. Added this to a lacy square covered with pink paisley DP then pop-dotted all onto a very dark green easel card, which has the inside covered with the same pink paisley DP. Colored up some sea shells too and added Glossy Accents to them and Coral's lips. Glued the sea shells around and added a bow, stamped 3-d dragonflies and hung a sea shell from the corner. I glittered different colors here and there- green strips in Coral's hair, clear on her freckles, and light pink sprinkles on her tail, the dragonflies, around the Happy sentiment, and a few dashes here and there. Cut out a wave, also from free coloring pages, adhered and bent the top upward for the easel to rest against. Inside is a round Happy Birthday sentiment. Pretty simple and so, so fun to make. Just loved coloring Coral Mermaid! I hope you like her, too.
Question-have any of you ever had a reaction to glitter? You know how glitter never stays where you put it, no matter what you do? Well, I ended up with spots of glitter on my arms, face, and legs, lol, and I started feeling like I was being cut with tiny scalpels! Owwww, it hurt! Tried to wipe it off, then tried a wet rag, then the sink, then finally the shower to get it all off of me and stop hurting. It was awful! Picked up some paper yesterday that had some of the glitter on it, got a little on myself, and the reaction started all over again! I had never used this particular glitter before. It is the very fine type. Never had this happen when using glitter!
