Squigglefly Challenge

Posted every Monday. Today is what??????????????? Tuesday. Dang it. And Wednesday for some of you. Well that's okay. Better late then never right? ;)

This weeks challenge selected by the ever talented Maria is picnic themed. Use any Squigglefly food or beverage image and make something! 

So I had this fabulous wine and grapes image titled Wine Country created by artist Lynn Stansbury.I printed the image on Sparkle Blanc from Paper Temptress and thought I would try something new. I didn't know what that something new was; I was just gonna try it. 

I have these Derwent Metallic pencils that I have NEVER used so decided to color my image with the few colors available. It was like a green, bergundy and grey. Then I matched those colors to some paper from Paper Temptress. Then I tapped a distress ink (sorry forgot what color) on to my craft mat and picked up some ink with a stipple brush and sort of started brushing it across the image. Mind you this paper was white to begin yet you can still see all the fabulous sparkle when done. (this may be a take on a Technique Junkie technique. Feel free to let me know). I liked it :) so I edged it with gold leaf and layered with  Mars Mica Metallic, Gamma Green PearlescentSparkle Noir and base is Mars Mica Metallic. No idea where the sentiment came from but deemed it appropro. Punched out with an SU punch and edged with gold leaf pen.
Please do visit the Squigglefly Blog and the Squigglefly Shop, you won't be disappointed. And now you are asking yourself , "Did she forget about the Altered Pages and Paper Temptress giveaway?" Nope. Haven't forgotten. Tomorrow. Promises :)

Come back tomorrow for a Gingersnap Creation challenge!!!

Hi stranger...just stopped by to see what's up. Loved checking out your work and reading about your band adventure ~smile~ it's so you.

I know I have been MIA for months now but I hope I'm back now. Trying to make a couple of cards and actually took the Copic training class this past Saturday.

Your cards are awesome as usual...you have such great talent.
