A Cutie for CLP Sketch Challenge!

I've finally got a card to share... woot woot!  I know, I've been slacking on that lately cuz I've been in 'school' learning about Photoshop Elements.  I love the idea of mixed media and have posted a few projects here and there in which I've dabbled in hybrid projects.  I've even used clay (I'm dying to use more!).  In the next few weeks though, I'll be showing new products and techniques - yay for new techniques!

But for today, I have a tried and true card to show you which I created for CLP Sketch Challenge #45.  Here's another one of Chelsea's amazing sketches (thank you, Sweetie!!!)

This is Give Peace a Chance by Sylvia Zet for SCACD.

Can you hear her saying, 'He loves me - He loves me not - He loves me....'?  I love her beautiful flowing hair!

I've entered her into the following Challenges:  Joanna Sheen - Spring is in the Air; Sir Stampalot - Take Inspiration (From Ruth's DT card using blue/green and flower!); The Crafter's Cafe - Ribbon and/or Lace; Creative Card Crew - Vintage; Simon Says - A bit 'o Green; Stampavie and More - Spring/Easter

Paper is from the Kaisercraft Sweet Nothings 6x6 paper pad.  I thought the 'tye-dye' look was appropriate for this image lol!  She's colored with copics:  Pants - B97 B95 B93 B91 B37 C7 C5; Top - G28 G24 G21 G20; Flower - YR24 YR21 YR20 YR14 R14; Hair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin - E11 E00 E000; Flower Centers - E18 E17 E13 E11 E02; Flower Stem - YG67 YG63 YG61 YG11; Shoes - E47 E44 E43 E42 E41 E40 C9.

Products and supplies used Give Peace a Chance stamp; Sentiment is from the Ticketed stamp set by Stampology; Kaisercraft Paper Pad (out of stock on Sweet Nothings, but check out the fabulous selection Here); Tuxedo Black Memento Ink PadSepia VersaFine Ink Pad; Faded Jeans Distress Ink; Copics (check out Susana Loves Markers Here); Stardust Stickles; Transparent Gloss GelGlamour Dust; MS border punches; paper doily; tulle; flat back pearls; button; Tim Holtz scissors (used to cut the shank from button); dimensional foam and BEST GLUE EVER*

I discovered a tutorial on Pinterest that gave directions on how to use punches in various ways.  The 'lace' border at the top with the pearls in the center was made according to those directions *Here*  Why not get the most use from the tools we have?

OK... I am not an OMG girl, but My Goodness, this is the BEST (not kidding!) glue E V E R ! ! !  This is the first card I've created using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever.  I must say that I was skeptical.  I mean really... isn't glue pretty much glue???  This glue totally blew me away!  From now on, I will use this for my adhesive instead of my ATG; Tombow or Glue Glider Pro.

The ONLY thing that I was not happy about was adhering the tulle which was knotted in the middle.  For that, as well as the button, I will continue to use Aleene's Super Thick Tacky Glue.

You only need a small amount of Best Glue Ever.  It does NOT wrinkle paper and holds extremely well.  A definite plus to using this glue over various tapes is that you can reposition your paper if you don't get it right the first time!  It dries permanent, but if you want repositional, you can apply to the surface and let dry before adhering to another surface.  I'm tellin' ya that they got the name right on this one!!!

You can find Best Glue Ever *Here*

Who would've thought I'd write a novel on glue???  Ah... the life of a crafter :)

I'm off to wash my hair and go to Bible Study...  I'll be back with the rest of my FREEBIES for ya.  Did ya miss the first FREEBIE?  You can find it Here!  Did you miss my Baby Steps Cartridge Giveaway?  You can find it Here!

Love you tons, my friends

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
