Try It Out Thursday

Good Morning, my friends!  Today is another day of firsts.  This is the first time I've had the privilege of playing with the amazing DT at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design Blog (SCACD)!  Yippee!!!  As my teamie, Alex, would say, "I feel like I'm sitting at the cool kids table!" Hee hee... I hope this isn't a dream and I wake up to find I'm still a nerd lol!!!

If you aren't familiar with SCACD Blog, each week the DT has a new technique or challenge to follow.  The team is split up into two groups, so you'll have double the inspiration!  Try It Out Tuesday/Thursday #71 (TIOT) for this week is to make a card or project for Father's Day.  To play along in the challenge, you may use any stamp that Susana carries in her store, SCACD.

I've chosen to use Lazy Days by Victoria Case for SCACD.  She is so versatile as you can see!  I would never have thought to use her for a 'man card'!  This is one of my fave stamps from the new Hearts and Hugs Summer Collection.

 Isn't she adorable?  I LOVE her to pieces : )

She's colored with my fave copics as usual.  Susana has copic bundles available at the store Here.  For her hair, I've used:  E35 E34 YR21 YR20; the 'blues' are:  BG05 BG02 BG01 BG000; the browns:  E59 E57 E53 E51 E50; the greens:  G28 G24 G20; skin:  E11 E21 E00 R20.  To make her eyes 'pop' I used Diamond Glaze.  It's so shiny!  I also gave her sandals and the heart under the computer generated sentiment a nice shiny coat of Diamond Glaze. Viva Decor Glitter Liner in Hologram is so incredibly 'blingy'!!!  You know how much I ADORE bling hee hee!  I had to sneak some in even though I don't think that guys care much about it...  I've lined the oval (cut out with my nesties Here) and gave the butterflies a nice coat of sparkle.  Have you tried Viva Decor products?  They are very easy to use and come in a nice big size!  LOVE it : )

... and last photo hopefully shows the shine in the Diamond Glaze lol!  I love how the heart pops out. It's like a puffy sticker!  Do they still make those?
