Last Lizzie Anne!!


This is my third and final entry for Lindsay's Lizzie Anne contest!! I really wanna win, can ya tell?? I have no idea how many other entries there are, but I did three, each one being very different in style and colour.

For this one I had the idea to make my own patterned paper using the Lizzie Anne stamps while we we traveling in the car last weekend. I was sitting in the back seat with Emileigh (we were both napping a little), and I sat straight up and said "I have an idea for a card!! Turn around, we need to go home!!" and she and my husband both just rolled their eyes at me! They think I'm insane sometimes. Of course I was joking.........sort of.

Anyway, I started out by making the patterned section using two of the flower stamps from the Jolies Fleurs stamp set. I made a mask for the biggest flower by stamping the image on a sticky note and cutting it out. Then I stamped the flowers around on the shimmery white cardstock, using the mask and gave it that layered look. I then coloured in the piece using my SU markers. I got the colour combination from a piece of Three Bugs in a Rug patterned paper which you can see in the picture....the card is sitting on it. I went back and shaded certain areas of the flowers with the markers. Then I stamped the largest flower twice more on a separate sheet of cardstock and coloured and cut it out and then layered them on the middle image for the paper tole/3D type look. I also added a LOT of sparkle, which I don't think you can see too well in the photo, all over the flowers and even on the tiny flowers that I stamped on the lower portion of the card base, which is Rose Red. I also sponged around the base with Rose Red ink. The main section is matted with Certainly Celery designer paper.

So which one of the three Lizzie Anne cards is your favourite?? I like each of them for different reasons but I think my fave is the Summery one........but I like the Dirty one too.........and this one is so bright and fun. Oh well, maybe one of them Lindsay will like.

Now I need to go and play with my other new stamps which are feeling terribly neglected right about now!! Have a great day!!!

Colleen said...

I just can't pick which one I like best...this one is just stunning...but I THINK that my favorite was the summer one...

Ida said...

Tough choice for sure. I love the bright colors on the "Summery" one and this one is just so pretty. As odd as it sounds I think I'm going for the "Dirty" one though as my favorite because it has such depth & elegance to it. Ida

Nuts, I really can't pick either. I do really love this one, it's stunning as they all are. Much as I really do love the elegant one, I think I would have to pick between the other two. I still think I like the summery one best. nd

Oh, I loved the dirty one, but this one is AWESOME -- my fave, I think. I really like the colors, the embossed base *it looks like it is... hmmm... the popped tole centers... This contest is just going to ROCK looking at good stuff like this!
