Inaugural Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party

For the Paper Playtime Anything Goes Challenge, click HERE.

This is my second post of the day. I am so excited and honored to be a guest designer for the inaugural Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas!! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!


The theme this week is Anything Goes. The sponsors are Close to My Heart Consultant Robin Carroll with a $10 gift card, and our fabulous Linky Party Hostess Tara with a $15.00 Joann gift card. The more you link up, the better chance you have to win. Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along :)


I am so addicted to my Dylusions sprays, stamps and stencils, they are all I want to work with anymore!! For this card, the paper is heavy-duty watercolor paper from Strathmore. It was spritzed with water and then Dylusions inks in Calypso Teal and Vibrant Turquoise. A Cosmic Swirls stencil from The Crafter's Workshop was placed over the paper and then sprayed with London Blue. The dots from a Dylusions Dotted Flowers stencil was placed over the top and spritzed with water for a ghosting effect. The stamps along the bottom and sides are from Dylusions' Further Around the Block stamp set, as are the hanging vines. They were stamped with Ranger Archival Ink. The blocks on the bottom and sides were colored in with a Tim Holtz waterpen filled with Cut Grass. The vines were colored in with TH waterpens filled with Funky Fuscia and Dirty Martini sprays. The black and white circle stamps are from Paper Wings Productions Art Textures stamp set. Some of the leaves were outlined with a Sakura white Gelly Roll Pen. Ranger Gold Pearl Liquid Pearl drops were added to some of the stems.


The dancing woman stencil is from The Crafter's Workshop. It was filled in with Wendy Vecchi Black Embossing Paste. The sentiment is from the Dylusions Right Word stamp set and adhered with Ranger Glue and Seal.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1.  Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes Challenge
  2.  Sunday Funday #7 - Linky Party

  21. LOVE this! I especially love the sentiment. I am a naturally happy person. When something bad happens, I am still happy...people say to me all the time "how can you be happy when (fill in the blank) is happening to you" my answer is that life is a messy, imperfect, wonderful gift that even on the bad days shouldn't be taken for granted.

    Hugs,

  38. My sweetest friend, you are beyond extraordinary. :o) (Notice the lack of an exclamation point? That's because it's pure fact. Teehee!) The joy with which you created this sparkles through so brilliantly. Those sprays must be fantastic because they blend so fantastically... although I'm sure your talent plays a key role! The design you created is artistic genius. I'm sure it's been said already, but this is a masterpiece and worthy of being framed. :o) Every detail couldn't be more perfect. Inspiring work, Lisa! I hope you love it with all of your gorgeous heart! (And congrats on the GD spot! They are blessed to have you!)

    Hugs and blessings!
