Try It Out Thursday #74

* To see my card for CLP Challenge, click Here *

Welcome my friends!  Today is the first day of July (to my Canadian friends, "Happy Canada Day!")...the next thing we know it will be Christmas - yikes!  Can someone please tell me who is taking all this time?  It's certainly not camping out at my house lol!

Today is also the LAST day to enter my candy Here.  Winner will be announced July 2!

Well, I promised you a project with a product that I've never used before.  This week's Try It Out Thursday is to use Flower Soft as well as a sketch.  I actually have used the Polar White Flower Soft for snow before (sorry, I lied - but not intentionally - I forgot!).  I wasn't sure what I was going to do this week, but this GORGEOUS stamp by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD kept calling my name!!!  Have you check out the NEW RELEASE yet?  I'm tellin ya that you're missing out...


This is Carousel Dreams by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD Sampler Edition #5.  Isn't it a beaut?  She's stamped with Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black.  It's the only ink I stamp with...  I had so much FUN coloring her.  How do I know that it's a girl?  By the color pink, silly!!! lol!!!  My fave copics were used to color her:  Horse - E59 E53 E51 E50, Mane, Tail, Hooves, Pole - E18 E17 E15 E 13, Reigns, Saddle - RV34, RV32 RV11 RV10 RV00, Leaves - G28 G21 G20.  I didn't color the flowers, but applied glue and Flower Soft in Ultra Fine Raspberry Fizz.  The border punch is from Fiskars.

Beautiful Memory Box dp (Gossamer) adorns the kraft cs.  The front is shorter than the back, but I see that my photography is lacking to show you that detail properly...  When it's closed, you can still see the background paper, pearls and punched pieces.  I hope you can see the dimension of the Flower Soft, it really stands out!

The whole card received a few spritz's of Maya Mist in Iridescent Pearl.  It is sooooo pretty!  It gives everything a nice shimmer!  The gorgeous roses were also given a bit of Stardust Stickles for extra bling : )  You know that I can't make a card without it lol!!!

Here's the fabulous sketch for Try It Out *T* #74.  Come join us!!!

Hi Lori! I have had carousel horse since EB and Susanna placed it in the blog. I have colored several times and it was ok. However, I saw the colors you used and had to lift it!!! I don't think I have that color flower soft, but I will know in a few. I will posting it on my blog and the EB Digi blog and wanted you to know I will be giving you credit for the color choices! I absolutely love them and will be using them more often in the future!!! HUGz
