A few things that I did this week was to see "Pitch Perfect 2" with Charlotte, my niece and my nephew. I have to admit that I liked it but thought it would be a bit better then it was. It was fun to go to the movies, though, something I love to do.
On Wednesday I went on a field trip to NYC with work. The kids got to attend some great work shops for acting. I attended the "Stage-Combat" workshop (this was the class my student chose to attend). It was fabulous! So interesting to learn that a lot of what is seen is really the "victim" moving the physical action rather then the aggressor. We then went to see "Les Miserables" on Broadway. It was a LONG but really enjoyable day.
Today I am posting a card that I created for someone that I work with. Their instructions were to make it "really girly." I chose to use the dress stamp from the retired Stampin Up! set "Haute Couture" as the inspiration for my card.
I stamped it in Momento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it in using Copic Markers. (RV04, RV06, RV09 and RV13) I love the vibrant pink!! I then stamped the sentiment with the same black ink and added some "Glam Pink" Stickles glitter glue onto the dress to give it a bit of sparkle.
I used a piece of Paper Trey Ink's Raspberry Patterned paper for the pink on the left side. I used a Lawn Fawn Scalloped Border die to die cut a piece of black pattered paper that I had as a scrap. I then layered these pieces with the stamped image onto the card. It needed something after I assembled it so I added a piece of black ribbon at the top.
My friend LOVED this card but if he didn't, I would have kept it. I really like how it turned out. I think I will be using this design to make a few more for my stash.
I am entering this into Simon Says Stamps "Anything Goes" Wednesday Challenge.
I thank you for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!!
