LiaStampz Guest Designer

Good morning my blogging buddies!!!
Today, Lia Stampz is back and has a brand new challenge for you to take part in. Fun!!! Fun!!
I won a spot for guest designer back in November and I was SUPER excited. 
When I got the email from Laura  and of course with my exuberant personality, replied….
YES!!!  YES…I would LOVE to!! LOL!!!  She sent me Leah Catch a Star”  which can be found at the Whimsy Stamps, you can follow the link down below. I had to much fun coloring this card and putting it together.  
The patterned paper was a bit on the bright side, so I washed it with a cream watered down paint. 
Once it dried I took a cloth and wiped a little of that paint off of the side brackets, just to let some of that gold shine come through!
The image was colored with Copics, then cut it out using Spellbinders Petite Ovals Large (s4-138) using the out of the box technique.  Then I colored the back ground with Antique Linen/ Frayed Burlap Distress Inks, then I used a sentiment from Raindrop Echo Designs, to finish my card for today's post. 

Well I hope that you enjoy my card and I encourage you to visit Lia Stampz and participate in this months challenge and you don't have to use a Lia Stampz image, you just have to follow the theme, which is a sketch.

Thanks for stopping by.
