Seeing things from Virginia's View


Did you know Virginia Lu started her own challenge blog recently called Virginia's View Challenge?    She commented in her regular blog, that was only expecting a small number of entries (maybe 20) but is now almost at 200!  All I can say is YAY for Virginia!  She is a super talented designer and a big sweetie ta boot, so it is really no wonder she has so many followers and entries. 

I knew I wanted to play the moment I saw it, so I am here to throw in my entry.  Virginia's current view is watercolor, check out this inspiration photo.


Here is what I made for the challenge using my new Papertrey Ink set Feather Finery.  I embossed the feather in white and then embossed the polka dots and sentiments in gold.  I then spritzed with my Moment Firecracker mists and used my watercolor pen to spread the color out.  I finished my card off with some gold photo corners to make extra gold accents.



Virginia- thank you for being a continued inspiration and all around good person!

PS- I am Guest Designing on Newton's Nook Design this Month and the new release is in a few days come visit us!

I absolutely LOVE that gorgeous look, Virginia; I was telling Michelle (our other guest designer on Newton's Nook) that I have to get the guts up to try this beautiful technique!

Such an eye-catching card, Katie! Oh, how I wish I could master (even a smidgen) the water-colouring techniques, but unless I can 'stay in the lines' it just doesn't work for me! I do, however, LOVE the results of others talents - and yours here is top-notch! Sooo pretty!! I agree with Virginia - your positive, effervescent personality, paired with delightful cards, makes visiting here a "must." I come away smiling...always! Looking forward to seeing you at NN!!
