tiddly inks challenge #66 Clearly the Best! Use Acrylic

Hi again! So nice of you to stop by : ) I am having fun playing with all my crafty stuff. I just wish that I could do something with all of it to add to the financial side of life. I am working on all of the good bags for my daughters' classes and teachers for Halloween. My hubby wonders why I put so much time into these things. And I tell him that I love seeing the kids smile when they see their little gifts. I'll post a picture when I get things looking pretty.

In the meantime, I have my TI Challenge card done. We had to use something acrylic somewhere on the card.




I used Hi There (boy) and Steampunk Papers from TI. The flower is made from the Steampunk Papers and then I cut it out into several flowers using a Heartfelt Creations flower set. The center is an acrylic bead with Stickles underneath and colored with a Copic marker. Then I colored Hi There with Copics. Next is the swirl from Memory Box that I painted with acrylic paint. The patterned paper is made with chalk inks using some Hero Arts stamps. I added a few more acrylic beads with Stickles underneath them. Finally I used some pearl white acrylic paint on the purple layer.

Thanks for stopping by and encouraging me to keep on crafting. Have a great weekend. I am going to try to make a card for Card Making Day tomorrow in between my girls' dance class and a trip to IKEA...who am I kidding? I am going to count this card as my Card Making Day card too. I won't be able to sit down to create anything tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get a nice storage unit for my crafting things.
