June SMC Blog Hop

First some personal news...SCHOOL'S OUT!!! I have a lot of things to accomplish this summer before August. Hopefully the rain won't come and stick around again like it did for the past couple of weeks. My internet is through a satellite so when I have heavy rain clouds blocking my signal I can't post to my blog, visit other blogs or links, or read my email (Thank goodness I had worked ahead and posted some of the stuff to my blog but my posts weren't entirely ready either). I was deprived of my computer for over a week. I would sneak some time at work reading my email but I couldn't go to links so I had to wait until the sun came out again (and boy has it come back - it's now hot and humid here) and now I have a lot of past links to look at and catch up on. I also have some posts I need make for my blog so stay tuned.

Now, I get to show you
Cammi in an Apple.

My image, printed on white cardstock, was colored with Bic, Sharpie, and PrismaColor Markers. I cut it out and popped it up like Your Next Step challenge. I made my card following Paper Craft Planet's sketch 052210 and A Gem of a Challenge's color scheme to use Burgundy, Pink and Green. I also have met Whimsical Ink Sorority's challenge to use green and to have a decorative border. I quickly stitched some variegated green thread above Cammi and added a couple of transparent pink flowers that I made darker with some Currant alcohol ink dabbed on one side. Mark's Finest Papers/Speedy the Cat's Challenge is to have an animal. KL Stamping and Scrapping is asking for distressed and torn edges. I tore the edges of the green felt-like paper. I think it's some kind of mulberry paper but it is really thick and heavy so I'm not sure. Totally Gorjuss wants to Bling it Up so I added the glitter glue dots and the tiny glitter flower.

In case you were interested in what Cammi looked like before...here you go.

I think I like the improved image much better, don't you? This card follows Techno stamper's sketch and the color inspiration by Crafty Hos challenge.
