OSAAT #72 July 24th Pearls & Swirls

24 July 11
Challenge #72
Pearls & Swirls

I'm sorry so say that this will be my last post for OSAAT.  Things have just gotton too much for me to handle at this time.  I will miss playing with all the wonderful designers little doodles, as they call them.

Another Sunday, another challenge on OSAAT.  Hope everyone is staying cool this summer.  I know, if you're unlucky like me and live in the south part of the US, it's been unbearable!!  Especially in Texas.  No rain, record breaking 100+ degree heat for months and no break in site!!  Although it is a good excuse to sit inside all day and get some scrapping done...

On to this weeks challenge. We want you to use pearls and swirls on your card.   I got to pick my digi from Hope Jacare Doodles this week.  You can find all the designers at Stitchy Bear Stamps.  This is the first time I've worked with this designer and loved this tree house.  It's also the first time I've made a "Congrats on your new home" card, also.  I tried to find some paper with swirls in it.  I colored the digi with my Copics and then sponge painted the leaves.  I used two different sizes of the deckled rectangle die for both my digi and the phrase.  For 2 different firsts, I like the way it came out.

Recipe-digi-Hope Jacare Doodles "Tree house With Bridge", paper-Scrapbook Walls "Canopy" The Paper Co. "Marigold", dies-Deckled Rectangles, pearls-Prima e., paint-Polymark Pearl

Renee I am really sorry to hear that you have stepped down, we will miss your wonderful creations on the team. I think when you are in blogland and on DT's you have to be very careful not to over commit yourself as it isn't as enjoyable if you feel like it is a pressure to create for deadlines etc.

I know we'll still see you about and I wish you the very best of luck and happiness.

Lots of love Mandy xxx
