You're SPEC-tacular!

Welcome back friends!  Kari with you once more to share this card featuring a new set from The Greeting Farm called You're Spectacular!  This set makes me happy as I, myself am a glasses wearer and what is so fun about this set is that there is different styles of glasses.


So, I took advantage of this, and used three of the different styles of glasses and created a background with it.  I first prepped my white card panel with my powder tool and I wanted to emboss these images with white embossing powder.  I randomly stamped out the glasses all over the panel, and then coated them with the embossing powder, and then used my heat tool to set the powder.  Then, I chose three colors of Distress Oxide inks to do the emboss resist technique.  I used Twisted CitronSalty Ocean and Wilted Violet.  I absolutely love these colors together!!  So YUMMY!!  And, these inks blend so effortlessly!  

Once I was completely done with the inking, I used my Distress Sprayer water bottle and spritzed some water for a more "distressed" look.  I set that panel aside and worked on my main image of the cute girl.  I stamped her onto a piece of scrap white card stock with my Jet Black ink from Lawn Fawn and used my Copic Markers to color her in.  For her skin, I used E11 and E33.  For her hair, I used E09 and E39, and for her dress and boots, I used FB2, V17, YG21 and YG05.  Then, I used the coordinating die to cut her out. For the sentiment, I stamped it onto a piece of white card stock and die cut it with the Mini Scallop Rectangle Dies from MFT.  

I added some foam tape to both my girl image and the sentiment strip, and added them both to my card panel.  Then, I added that whole piece to an A2 Black card base.  For a final touch, I added some glossy accents to her glasses to give it some shine and to make them look more realistic.  

I love how fun and vibrant this card is, and I hope it makes YOU feel SPEC-tacular too!!  Have a great week!!  Next week will be my final DT post to share with all of you!  I can't believe the 4 month term went so fast!  With that said, the Design Team Call is currently open and you have until Aug. 27th to get your application in!!  This is a great team to be apart of and I encourage all of you that are interested to apply!!
