Eeek! Last year I didn't have the courage to audition for Gallery Idol, but this year, thanks to a little nudge from Miss O, I decided I better give it a shot. So, here is my first entry! The theme for the first round of auditions is "Encouragement". I created this card using the PTI set "Rosie Posie". I know I am probably the very last person to buy this set but I chose it as a prize in Feb, and just got it in the mail last week. I've had the matching dies for three months! Torture, but well worth the wait. I applied crackle glaze to the large flower to give it some extra dimension. The butterfly and sentiment are from the Technique Tuesday New Release "Take Flight". I picked up this set at a scrapbook store in Texarkana Tx called Scrapbookers Emporium. They were so nice, and had a great selection of hot and trendy items. I am going back for sure! I stamped the butterfly in Slate Gray ink by A Muse Studio, and Soft Sky by Stampin Up. I used a blender pen to spread out the color. I love the soft touch of color!
The color inspiration for my card is from the current challenge at The Play Date Cafe:
Such pretty colors! I loved using the color combo and will be using it again for sure! Well, that's it for today. Good luck to everyone trying out for this years Gallery Idol! Have a wonderful day and thank YOU for visiting my blog!
