INVENTORY CHALLENGE no. 70


Happy Friday Friends,
Christina and I and our lovely team are happy to welcome you to our 70th Inventory Challenge, featuring Texture! I almost did not make it ... Seems like everything went wrong. But here I am, out of breath, but all there!

Bon vendredi chères amies,
Mon amie Christina, notre talentueuse équipe et moi même vous accueillons à notre 70e Inventory Challenge, sous le thème de la texture... Je suis à bout de souffle, cette semaine fut assez chargée, mais malgré tout j'ai réussi.

Today, we are going to travel to Japan, as Tilda will make us discover the mysterious world of Geishas. I had managed to create a nealy white face for her, but I had a little accident while coloring her dress. To use the maximum of wetness for a nice blending, I hold my copics in my left hand, cap out... I was changing colors, and dropped the darkest pink, right in the middle of Tilda's face. Half an hour later, and an empty blender, I gave her back her lovely complexion, a tiny bit darker than I really wanted! Would you like to see my booboo? I took a pic, just in case, yesterday would be an hectic day, and I would not be able to make it! but we can all laug about it!

Nous nous apprêtons à explorer le monde fascinant des Geishas. J'avais réussi avec mes crayons copics à créer le teint blanc rosé uniforme des geishas, mais j'ai eu un petit accident! Pour profiter du maximum d'humidité lorsque je fais mes dégradé, je tiens mes marqueurs, sans bouchons dans ma main gauche, ce qui me permet de changer rapidement de couleur... eh! bien, j'ai échappé le rose foncé, en plein centre du visage de mademoiselle Tilda. Une demie heure plus tard, et un blender 0 à sec, j'ai réussi à réchapper mon image, mais en échange, Tilda a un teint un peu plus rosé! vous vous en rire? 









For my card, I colored Japanese Tilda, from the Bon Voyage collection, with copics, stamped on x-press blending card. The glitter in Tilda's flowers is made with atyou spica gel pens. To meet my challenge requirements, I used two cuttlebug folders, from the Plum blossom set. To create the shiny look on the black pannel, I sprayed it with Goosebumps, and embossed all borders with Holographic powder. the shapes are from Spellbinders, the ribbon from my stash, and flowers also. My papers are leftovers of Kyoshi collection from Basic Grey, cardstock from stampin up.

J,ai colorié  Japanese Tilda, de la collection Bon Voyage avec mes copics, sur x-press blending card. Ce sont les Atyou spica gel qui donne le brillant sur les fleurs. Pour rencontrer mon défi, j'ai utilisé en arrière plan, deux plioirs de Cuttlebug, de la collection Plu blossom. J,ai vaporisé du Goosebumps sur le panneau noir, et embossé les bordures avec de la poudre holographique. Les formes sont de spellbinders, le ruban et les fleurs de mon inventaire. Mes papiers sont de la collection Koyshi, de Basic grey, un reste de feuille, et les cartons de stampin up.

Danielle, gorgeous card--as usually, fabulously turned out. Oh I did not know that it's possible to repair that kind of mishap so perfect. I can't see any hint of the dropped ink. I think I probably would have cried my eyes out and started over...LOL. Anyway, awesome job you did on the Tilda. Love your embossed paper with the blossoms. Your spray of flowers is just to die for. Love your card.
Hugs,
Norma
