Wow! Back for a 3rd post today. 

When it rains it pours around here!

But... I've been trying to get a card done for the Around the World Stampin Challenge
And finally managed to! Yay! It's a color challenge which is usually a challenge for me! =)




 

 Here's my card




Some close ups
 
 I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Watercolor Paper and colored the image with Blender Pens and Classic Ink pads smooshed onto the covers. Then I sprayed a little water on and dabbed
with paper towel.









Hope you like it!

Anyway until then... Here are some otherThings I made

I love this paper!! Typeset Specialty Designer Series paper.

 The Black Cardstock was cut off and I ran the small piece through the Bigshot with the
Decorative Dots TIEF and then glued it right next to the bigger piece


 The "2003" was cut from the paper and embossed with gold embossing powder.


 The 3 gold glitter stripes were cut from the gold glimmer paper




 Metal buttons, wood elements, thread from the 1 1/4" burlap ribbon, linen thread,
 piece of whisper white CS embossed with the alphabet press TIEF 
then punched with spiral border punch
You can't see in the picture but I did put crystal effects on the 1" circle that's under the wooden element to make it shiny and popped up
