Dirty Lizzie Anne!!!


Today is the last day to get your entries in to Lindsey for her Lizzie Anne contest. So here is another one I did with the Jolies Fleurs stamp set, which I am lovin'!!

This one is a more distressed, 'dirty' lookin' card and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I started out with my Blush patterned papers by Basic Grey and stamped the two smaller flowers in Chocolate Chip on the red distressed patterned paper then I sponged the edges with a cosmetic sponge. I did the bigger middle strip just by distressing the edges with the sponge and layering it on top of some Chocolate Chip cardstock. The smaller strip was the pink distressed patterned paper and I stamped the little flourish in Chocolate Chip along the center and sponged the edges. Then I layered that strip on a piece of Close to Cocoa cardstock that I had paper pierced all along both edges using my Mat Pack. Don't know if you can see it but I also pierced in the corners of the red layer. I stamped the big flower on shimmery white cardstock with Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured it in with my SU markers, making sure to shade around the edges to make it look 3-D. Then I cut it out and pop dotted it in the center of the card. The whole piece is layered on Close to Cocoa and the card base is Chocolate Chip. Lots of layering and lots of little details!!

Keep your fingers crossed for me.........I'd love to win a gift certificate to Lindsey's store......wouldn't you???

Also, I have August's Kool Krafter coming up soon!! So stay tuned!!

I love, love, love this card! I, too, am in love with Lizzie Anne stamps. Can't wait to see ALL the cards made with them. Wonderful job, and love the "dark" look of a floral work!
