7 Kids College Fund Challenge #154: ANYTHING GOES!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today starts a new challenge on the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog! The theme for the next 2 weeks is: ANYTHING GOES!! Just remember to qualify for the Top 3 and Gift Certificate drawing, you must use a stamp carried in the 7 Kids College Fund Store. This challenge will end on JUNE 28th at 12:00pm MST
 
 My card features this stunning girl from LDRS Creative called A GIRL CAN'T HAVE TOO MANY. This set comes with extra accessories, but I just used the girl. She's stamped on some new paper I'm trying out thanks to my friend Colleen! She sent me a sample of this Cryogen White Cardstock and I LOVE it!! It has a little shimmer in the actual paper and it blends smoothly.

Copics:
Skin: E0000, E50, E51, E21, E11
Hair: E43, E47, E49
Pink: R81, R83, R85
Gray: N2,

The paper, including the awesome sentiment is from Doodlebug Design SPRING GARDEN 6x6 Paper Pad. I didn't want to add to much to this since I wanted the focus to be on the sentiment. I think I'm going to frame this for my craft room.

You can participate in the DoveArt Studios BLOG HOP here: DoveArt Studios


This card features the new DoveArt Studio Flower Lily:

For my card today I decided to use several of the stamps from the Little Pixie Under The Sea Clear Stamp Set. I stamped them on Hammermill Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics. Then I added Star Dust Stickles to certain parts to get the sparkle. I used Faber Castel Silver Gel for the pearls.

The cool background was created using glossy paper, Copics, an air compressor, and alcohol in a spray bottle. We learned how to make this background at Jennifer Dove's Copic Boot Camp class. I went in May, but she's having another one this November. You definitely need to check it out if you want to improve your Copic coloring and learn some new techniques! I found some glittery cardstock for the background mat.

 Every release we will have a New Release Blog Hop to showcase our awesome Design Team! Check out their amazing creations!
