Over at the Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog, we’re continuing our month-long celebration of our List Moms’ birthdays with this week’s challenge: Peggy and Spike’s Favorite Things! Raindrops on roses, perhaps? Whiskers on kittens?? Oh, heck no! We’re talking COLOR and BLING!
With parameters like that, who could pass this one up?!
The Summer Solstice is just a couple of days away, so this felt like a good time to bust out one of my all-time favorite stamps. I’ve used this image for every sun-related event for years now, and I sure do wish I knew where it came from! (If anyone can tell me, I’ll send you a little present.)
Surprisingly, I colored this with my ancient set of Le Plume markers instead of my shiny new Copics. I’d already embossed the image in black (duh!), and believe me when I say that Copics and colored embossing powders don’t play well together. At all. (Although clear powder usually works just fine. Go figure.)
As for the bling, that big orange fireball is made with Luna Lights metallic ink, The Shiniest Stuff on Earth. And, if you look closely, you’ll see about a half-bottle each of Broken China and Faded Denim Distress Stickles layered over the blue-painted sky. Take this card out into the daylight and you’ll need to view it through welder’s glasses to avoid eye injury. Okay, maybe not, but you get the idea.
Why don’t you grab your markers and your favorite sparkles and join the Drunken Stampers this week? This party goes through next Friday night, and we’d love to what you can do with Peg and Spike’s favorites! !
