You need to take a peek at the amazing binding she created with beads and wire.... I'm gonna have to try that! Jessi is going to win a prize pack from Paper Addiction. I'm not totally sure what's gonna be in the pack, but I'm sure Laura will put something fabulous together. Since I mentioned Paper Addiciton I need to mention that we are having a STOREWIDE SALE - everything is at least 20% off and the "Clear It Out" category is 40% off!
The first card was made for color challenge CC211 on Splitcoast. I used a brand new stamp set that just arrived yesterday from Flourishes. The image was colored with copic markers in shades of pink, peach and olive.
QUESTION: Would you like me to include the Copic Color #'s in my posts so you know which markers were combined for the shading effects? Let me know in a comment!

I really like how the second card turned out. I usually don't leave this much open space... but wanted something clean and simple looking! I've been eyeing this peacock image from Flourishes since it was released and I finally caved in and ordered it. To make the card I stamped and cut out the peacock, then lightly watercolored it with ink in Sage Shadow, Old Olive and Pink. I added dazzling diamond glitter with a fine point glue pen to the feathers and the edges of the sentiment scallop.
The rhinestones were a find from Joann's around Xmas time. Packages of 5 containers of flat backed rhinestones for $1... I picked them up in ever color!! I usually attach my rhinestones with a dap of glossy accents from Ranger. It has enough "stick" to keep them in place and it's easy to get the adhesive in just the right spot without a big mess.
