CASE a friend and 1-4-1 Swap

  I am in a blogging group at SCS called Stamp Addicts.  We have a CASE challenge and I am way over-do on a couple of the CASE's..... One of the members is a fabulous Copic artist- and I thought coloring Japanese Tilda would be a good challenge to CASE Marilyn- you can see what I mean if you visit her Blog One Stamping Fool . Goodness, her coloring is out of this world beautiful!  Yep! So, I used the W's and some R's on Japenese Tilda plus some skin colors in E's + R20. I used Kraft cardstock and some Crumb Cake DSP from SU under my favorite Cheery Lynn Border Die.
  So, the coloring here does not come close to Marilyn's, but I am happy with how this card came out.
  I decided to use this card for my Just One Swap for the Technique Junkies. The background I layered the image on is called Colorwash Alcohol- I love this for the depth that is achieved.

 So, my TJ swap partner is Barb I, and she made this card:
 The technique Barb used on the bottom of the card is called Tissue Tape using a Stamps of Life set. I love the colors, the stamps and the fun technique Barb used.

For my Japenese Tilda card, I want to enter a few challenges:
Cherry Lynn Blog- Borders and Edgers (the Dancing Doily Lace border die is one of my absolute favorites!) I used the extra pieces as corner dies too. It reminds me of delicate tatting......
Papertake Weekly- Things that make you go Awwwwww!
Use it Tuesdays- Anything Goes w/ Hoarded Supplies......Colorwash and the Tilda- I have had it soooooo long!

That's all for tonight!  If you happen to stop by Marilyn's One Stampin Fool Blog to drool....I mean admire her beautiful coloring, tell her Shelly says Hello!

Thanks for stopping by!
