Here's my entry for Allison's AFSS19 challenge. Recently during our summer cleaning (yes we didn't get time to do that during spring!), my DH found some transparencies that he didn't need and I got them all for myself! When I read about this challenge, I "clearly" saw a way to use them! Initially I wanted to make the acetate card, but I think my transparencies were too thin to be used for that purpose. So instead I just used them for the outer cover. The photos are not very enlightening, I was not able to capture what I'd done. I applied a beautiful rub-on that was sent to me by Allison (you can see the picture here) on the acetate cover such that it would form a border around the flower stamped on the CS. Then I stamped "Best Wishes" on the bottom of the acetate so that it would get the background of the DP on the CS. So it looks as it's a ribbon with a sentiment. I also doodled some flowers with a glitter pen on the transparency.

This card is for Nicola's sketch challenge #10. The sketch is fabulous if you've a focal figure but my problem was that I didn't have one! So at one point I almost thought that there's nothing I can make for this challenge. Finally I think it was the love for the Tilda images that got me going.
I used my new possession Red stardust pen to color in the stamped image and it looks beautiful IRL. With this coloring I realized that even a mono-colored image can look nice.

- CS and PP: DCWV and scraps
- Red stardust pen, nestabilities circle, wavy edge scissors, glitter stickers.

Here's a glance at my first blog candy that generous Allison sent!
It's AWESOME! There's ribbon and lots of it, a stamp set, some beautiful rub-ons, gorgeous metallic stickers, some beads (or are they dew drops? Never seen dew drops so I don't know) and Girls of the world cutouts! I'm soooo impatient to start using them. Look at the beautiful card she sent. Thank you so much Allison!

I'm a little lazy to stitch and not too good at it so I gave a faux stitching look using a green glitter pen. The glitter looks real good IRL.

Ok so I made another card for the challenge as my previous card didn't adhere to the restrictions. I guess I need to buy the embossing buddy as I use the embossing detail powder and some of it always remains in the background :(. Whenever I look at this card, for some reason I always feel that this design would lend well to an Indian wedding card! Here's the link to the challenge.
- Stamps: LAD's Jolies Fleur
- Nestabilities classic and scalloped circle
- Silver detail embossing powder, marvy heat tool, top boss embossing ink.
I started this card with two aims: one to make a Father's day card (hence the brown theme) and to enter this into the SCS tall card challenge. I fulfilled the first aim but not the second one. While making it I got so engrossed that I forgot one of the restrictions of the challenge which was to not use a DP! I'm happy with the way it turned out. Maybe it's a little girly but then it's from a daughter to a father so it ought to be girly :).
It's a 8.5 X 4 inch card. The flower has a pop-out.
- Stamp: LAD's Jolies Fleur
- CS and DP: DCWV
- Prismacolor pencils and OMS
- Nestabilities classic and scalloped circle, "Victorian" shape scissors

Once again I used my glitter glue on this and was very happy with the result.
- Stamp: LAD Jolies Fleur
- Scalloped and classic circle nestabilities, prismacolor pencils and OMS, grosgrain ribbon, glitter glue, tacky glue.
- Stamp: LAD's Jolies Fleur
- Silver embossing detail powder and marvy heat gun
- white satin ribbon, tacky glue
As usual I've left the top strip blank for the sentiment. I wonder if you can see the glitter. I'd been thinking of getting the stickles and in the meantime I've these glitter glues that I thought I could use. They don't look that bad actually. The paper has an orange peel texture so it looks really nice in RL.
