Now I've done it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Well, I've finally done it..........I've become a "blogger" and I absolutely have no idea what I'm doing, so please bear with me!!! I'd like to start by sharing a card that I made yesterday for the” Inspiration Challenge" (IC143~Hotel Fox) at Splitcoast Stampers. For those of you that have not registered at their site, you really should, as you will learn so much, plus their challenges really help to inspire your cardmaking, etc! The "room" image (Room #404 of the Hotel Fox) is a photo of the "hotel" room that I used for my inspiration.


I really did not have any designer paper on hand for this this.....so I went into Photoshop CS3 and designed my own red background paper using brushes! After I printed the paper using my Epson Inkjet, I sprayed it with DecoArt Triple Thick Gloss Glaze, which to me made it look more Japanese. I spent a couple of years in Japan as a child and I still remember the beauty of it. I used my Cuttlebug and the "Birds & Swirls" embossing folder to emboss the gold frame that I designed and cut using my Pazzles and it's software...it kind of gave it a bamboo look! I used some "King’s Gold" Wausau Metallic Paper to make the frame.
Finished Card Size: A2/4.25"x5.5"

Stamps: PSX F-1741 (Bamboo) , Studio G, Series 11 (sentiment)
Inks: "Queen's Gold" by Ranger
Accessories: Pazzles Inspiration, Cuttlebug, Adobe Photoshop CS3, Robin's Nest Dew Drops, Offray Ribbon
