My friend AJ is hostessing a swap for the stamp set SU! sent to all demonstrators for Christmas, Polka Dots & Paisley. Of course, I jumped at the invitation to join! ;) Yesterday I worked feverishly to get them hammered out, so I can pop them in the mail to her on Monday. I wanted to do something a little different, so instead of using the flower as is, I used my markers to turn it upside down, and into a coneflower! I used chocolate and rose to ink the blossom, then flipped it and stamped. Next I inked the stem with my celery marker, and placed that as well. For the main image panel, I notched the corners using the ticket corner punch and matted it onto Chocolate Chip cs. I also used the "diamond dust" technique. I covered the entire panel with Versamark ink, them embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for a truly sparklay shine!!! For the card base, I used Certainly Celery cs, and stamped the dotted pattern along the bottom 3/4 of the card. I added a double strip of ribbon along the seam. I used the pink crinkly ribbon from the Flirty Ribbon Originals collection and chocolate grosgrain ribbon. The main image panel is popped up on dimensionals. For the sentiment, I inked most with my chocolate marker, used my rose marker for the word "little", and punched with the key tag punch. I think it came out pretty well, hope all the other swappers, and our lovely hostess are happy with them too!
