Sparkle & AFA

Yay! I get to be Guest Designer for two weeks at Anyone for Anya! Am so very excited! It's my first time designing and it is such an honor! Thanks so much for the opportunity, Dawny! This week's challenge is to make a card using pink + white + one other color - I picked purple. I seem to be using purple a lot nowadays... but previously, I always had a hard time. My cards must be mimicking what's trendy this fall season :).

For the card, I used your not-so-typical supplies. Went to one of my paper-crafting idols, Traci Bautista for this one.

The outer pink/purplish 'paper' is actually a dyed paper towel that I bought as part of Traci's previous "kol laj" art kits. You can see the edge of it on the third picture -- still crinkly!

The middle 'paper' was created from one of her many art workshops/ classes that I took at Scrapbook U about five years ago (see, sometimes it pays to be a pack rat! :)). It resulted from making a collage out of different textured papers, glitter, paint, crinkly glitter ribbons, paint flakes, modeling paste, and colorful powder. Traci is SUCH a genius!!

I also used Bazzill for the cardstock, Doodlebug Design Inc for the brads, and misc is a vintage-looking button! And I love this Showtime Anya! She is such a star! And she is colored by copic markers, of course!

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by! Would love to hear from you! Tootaloo!!

Gorgeous card, that handmade paper adds so much flair! Congrats on the GDT spot at AFA, I know you are totally going to rock their challenges! Can't wait!

Oh, and the Generation Tech paper I used on today's sprout cards is a DCWV stack that you will find at JoAnn's.
