It’s Relay Weekend

Since my daughter was in the third grade, we have volunteered at the Phillipsburg Relay for Life.  We don’t plan it.  We help the day of as there are always plenty of hands needed during the actual Relay for Life event.  This year will be no different except that, I thought I could also help in another way.

For everyone who purchases through my store May 15 – 18, 2014 and uses Hostess Code ZKGVZDPQ  I will donate 10% of your order to the Phillipsburg Relay for Life.  What do you get besides the satisfaction of helping a worthy cause and some new products?  I will give you free shipping during June (orders must be placed with me).  Easy to do good and be rewarded.  Win/win!!

For today’s creation, I used Happy Watercolor.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this stamp set and can’t believe it will only be around for two more weeks.

This orchid image is quite versatile and loads of fun to color.  Of course, I couldn’t resist using my Blendabilities.  I’m really trying to run them through their paces.  I can confidently say that when you can get your hands on them, you’re going to love them.

In fact, they’ve been so popular with demonstrators that I’m adding another live, online class for next Wednesday, May 21 at 10pm (EST).  If you’re not a demonstrator but would like to take this class, you can join my team now.

I used the Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Color Lifter Blendabilities to color in the orchids.  These new markers allow for lots of subtle shading.  However, the watercolor splotch at the bottom of the focal image was inked with Pear Pizzazz classic ink.

The Whisper White layer was added to a piece of Venetian Romance designer paper.  Then, two strips of Pear Pizzazz 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon were added to the Pear Pizzazz cardstock base.  I’m trying out a new adhesive called Fast Fuse.  It comes in a tape runner and will be available in the 2014-2015 Catalog.  It gets two thumbs up!.

 

 

 

Finally, the focal image was added to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
