Hi Everyone and It's the last week of the month and you know what that means..............................
BLOG HOP TIME at Bitten By The Bug 2!
You probably hopped here from the Amazingly Talented Donna's Blog. Boy I hope I can live up to Donna, she's amazingly awesome and makes the best layered cards, I call her "The Queen Of POP", LOL!
Beth picked the Country Life Cartridge to use this week and we are to use the Banner Feature on the cart and I made a banner to put in my Laundry Room. I actually used my Imagine for this one and used Kraft paper instead of the normal white paper to give it a more rustic look to it and I'm not sure I'm liking it 100%. I like the whole idea of not having to pick out papers, I just printed them and then used the Kraft paper for the shadow behind it and added some glitter to the letter's. I used the packing tape method to apply the glitter where you add the tape to the back side of the image, sticky side up, and add the glitter to the sticky side. I used a copper glitter and I think I should have used a darker color, maybe Red or Blue (??????) but it's done now so too late and it looks better in person then in the pic so............!!!!!
I inked Every thing with Tim Holtz Distress Inks using Vintage Photo. I also added some twine to tie the banners together and added the little Mini Clothes Pins, aren't they the cutest! I've had them for along time and finally got to use them, lol!
And to tie all the banners together and take it one step further I added the wash basin and scrub board, perfect for the occasion! Added some glittery stickles for the bubbles and some shiny diamond glaze for the shine on the bubbles in the tub. I also did alot of faux stitching, on the banners and the washtub and scrub board.
Now for your next stop on the Hop you are going to Penny's Blog, How exciting to see what my wonderful Design Sister has in store for you next and if you get lost along the way remember to start at the BBTB2 Blog homepage where you can see all the amazing projects for all the Design Team Gals on one page.
Now for the fun part, Blog Candy.....................
To win my Candy all you have to do is to be a follower and leave a comment with what your impression of the Imagine is. It's not going back to anyone just for me being curious as to what everyone thinks. If you have one or if your planning on getting one and what your opinions are of it are. I haven't been using mine a whole lot and just did the update and didn't have any problems other then keeping my fingers and toes crossed because there wasn't any real step by step directions from the Provo Craft site. I think that would have been a lot easier and faster for alot of people, including myself. I'm going to try and make a few other things this week so I may have a few more of my opinions, (and yes I have a few) and a few suggestions for any new updates. But for now it is Blog Hop Time and Blog Candy Time so follow and leave your comments, Hop off to my fellow Design Team Gals and Good Luck! Have a Great week and remember please play along and if you don't have the Country Life Cartridge use any Cart that has a banner feature and enter the challenge with Mr. Linky on the BBTB2 Blog for your chance at a special winners Blinkie! Hope you see you there!
I'm also adding this to the challenge over at Frosted Design, their challenge this week is to use Die Cuts. Well everything I used other then the string was a Die Cut so I guess that qualifies, lol. I already entered my Old West Layout but since I don't post a whole lot and I Love their blog (if you haven't checked them out you really should) I will enter this also! Hope to see you over there also!
((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa
