So Let's get started by Inking It Up!!

I stamped my image on Watercolor Paper, I wanted to see how my markers would react to the paper. Which I was very pleased with it!! I used my cookie cutter die to cut out my image and my green oval frame. I used my border punch to punch out my pink border. I used a large corner punch to add to my oval frame, I also added glitter.
I am a fan for bling!! Of course, I had to add some glitter. I used Embossing Powder Holographic for my fairy's wings to give it a clear glittery glow, I used glitter for her dress and the dew drops.
Hope you like my card and Please go visit  the rest of the fantastic Ladies on the Design Team of Let's Ink it Up!!!

Card 3 for Joans Gardens JustRite Challenge

If you are looking for Joans Gardens JustRite Blog Hop and Challenge just click HERE!!

Here is my 3rd card that I'm going to enter in Joans Gardens JustRite Challenge. I really enjoyed making this one, I used the JustRite Stamp Set  "Beautiful Day Set" and stamped with VersaMark, and embossed with Detail White from Stampendous. Because I was stamping on black card stock I used my White Ultimate Gel Pen-Pastel to color in the flower, leaves and bow. I then colored over the white with my Triart pens.
I really love the way it turned out!!
I used Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings ribbon that I won on their blog hop, They have some wonderful ribbon!!
I used JustRite Times New Roman Font and Damask Borders for my monogram on my card.

Of course the picture doesn't show it but, all the circles are raised!!!

   For my card I started off with Core' dination's Sand it, Tear it Emboss it, love it paper for my back ground. I used this beautiful vellum paper with the design and cut it out with my Creative Memories stencil. I used my Spellbinders oval and die cut the center out. Using the border stamp from the  JustRite "Beautiful Day Set". I stamp with VersaMark on the out side of the center cut out of the Vellum and embossed it with a light blue embossing powder.
Stamped the Irises with Memento black ink, I then colored it in with markers and die cut it a little larger then the vellum's center oval cut. I wanted to bring  the colors of the border out. I added my brad butterflies,bling and attached my bow.
For the inside I used the same background paper and cut out the same shape as the vellum on the front. Stamping the border and sentiment from the same stamp set JustRite "Beautiful Day Set" with the VersaMarK and embossed it with the light blue embossing power. Added my brad butterflies and bling.


I have to say, I really love working with the JustRite Stamps!!
