tiddly inks challenge #71 anything goes

Hi All!! What a week this has been. That nor'easter really kicked our butts!! My whole area was pretty much without power for the week. We were all searching for hotels to stay warm and dry and to plug into the internet. Barnes and Nobles was packed with people plugged into every single one of their outlets. Panera was the same way. Gas stations had lines that had us waiting for 2 hours for a fill up. The laundromats were packed with people wanting to clean clothes. And our streets and yards were covered with broken tree limbs and downed wires. I was personally out of power for 7 days. There are still others with no power. I am so happy to be able to cook a meal and do laundry in my house. I need to be better prepared for these disasters. When the hurricane hit it wasn't as bad because it wasn't so cold outside.

For this week's TI Challenge we could do anything as long as we used a TI image. I can't wait to go through and see what everyone made. I wanted to create a card with dimension but very little bulk.

I used Annie from the TI rubber stamps at Stamping Bella and colored her with Copics. And I used Liquid Pearls to give her dress some shimmer. The card itself started out as white cardstock. I first stamped a script stamp. Next I spray misted a stencil with some Glimmer Mist. Then I used my glue pad and a swirl stamp from Hero Arts and stamped it on the card. Once it sat for a bit I used my Ritz Glitter on it. Finally I inked up the edges with some Archival Ink.

I hope your week went much smoother than mine. And I have to say that I am so happy to have been able to participate in this week's challenge and play with all my crafty stuff. I had missed them all week. Have a great rest of the weekend!
