Viva + Corrosive

How cute is this?

I used the current Viva La Verve sketch:

Supplies and notes:

  • A couple library cards for the panels
  • For the rear due-date card, I just left it as-is
  • For the front library card, I pasted 'er with Teresa Collins modeling paste through a Tim/StampAnon stencil (Honeycomb)
  • After modeling paste dried, I used my Loew Cornel watercolors (as I always say, this palette is older than my kids... it always brings back good memories of college nights, drinking with one of my BFF's and painting late into the knight)
  • The horse and hearts are Colorbok dies from my momma
  • Sequins from my stash
  • I haven't decided if this will go to my friend's daughter [ironically, the BFF that I wrote about's daughter] or to a woman who helps me in the library-- she is so girlie and she loves horses, so I have yet to add a sentiment
  • Oh, also smooshed some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist onto the actual card for a nice touch to the background
I plan to share this at the following challenges:
I haven't played with either of these challenges in a while-- I'm glad to.  I love these here parts of Blogland.
