No. 43, INVENTORY CHALLENGE, Swirls and Curves

Good Morning dear blogger friends, 
Christina and I welcome you to our friendly Inventory Challenge, this week with not only a fantastic theme, but with an extended team!!!! Last week, we were pleased to announce that Sandy was coming back to play with us, this week, Charlene informed us that she would love to play again, and we have the pleasure of welcoming Kathy, from Kathy's Knook is joining us for for the fun. Our theme is Swirls and Curves... all in softness and feminity! Well, I missed Tilda, you know she is my Muse, although I love coloring almost everything,  I started my journey in coloring with Tilda, and she remains very precious to me. She carries with her a special aura, and brings a source of inspiration that is unique to her. On with my card. I could not resist using again  Sweet Threads this wonderful paper collection from Basic Grey, I got from Scrapbook ta vie.  I colored Watercan Tilda with Distress Inks, on watercolor paper. Because I love glitters, I used Smooch on the flowers, and made the little dots in her dress with it too. I gave quite special treatment to the chipboard, I painted it with acrylic paint,  used again some Smooch on the flowers and the leaves, and embossed it about 3 times, to get a very clear coat. Enought blabla, it is getting very late... here is my card.

Bon matin chères amies,
Cette semaine, Christina et moi n'avons pas qu'un thème intéressant à vous proposer, mais toute une équipe, la semaine dernière Sandy s'est jointe à nous, voilà que Charlene décide de revenir, et nous accueillons Kathy!  Notre thème, tout en douceur, Swirls and curves... J'ai exploré les swirls sous la forme d'un chipboard en fleur, à qui j'ai donné un traitement bien spécial: une couche de peinture acrylique, suivie de Smooch, et embossé 3 fois, pour un lustre bien brillant. Je me suis bien ennuyée de Tilda, ma muse préférée, alors j'ai colorié Tilda with Watercan, de la collection Sweet Rainbow, avec les encres Distress, et les papier Basic Grey, Sweet Threads, étaient parfaits pour créer l'effet jardin que je voulais. Assez de bla bla... à ma carte.

                                                           A close up of the chipboard.

I embossed this cute aluminium sheet border with cuttlebug's embossing folders.
Cette jolie bordure est une feuille d'aluminium colorée, embossée avec un plioir cuttlebug.

I stamped and embossed the writing space with Stemplegled Vintage Garden STamps.
La déco autour de l'espace d'écriture est une étampe de Stempleglede, Vintage garden, que j'ai embossée.

Oh, I've missed so many beautiful creations! You've surely been busy lately, girl! And I see you love to play with so many different techniques! It's great to take the time and really enjoy what you do!
The result is outstanding on all your cards- the work you put into each and everyone makes them priceless. Love the embossed panels and the chipboard design, really effective. Great coloring on Tilda's dress too; the shape is fantastic, just a pleasure to look at!
