A Thank You for Rico

Good Morning Crafty Friends and Welcome Back!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season.

I have been on my usual fall hiatus due to my work schedule but now that things have settled down I am so excited to be crafting again.  I was having a hard time getting fired back up until I saw a gorgeous layout buy a super talented lady on one of the design blogs.  I just fell in love with her style and was inspired to try some new things so I actually scrap-lifted some ideas from her.  Of course I don't have a 10th of her talent but am still loving how this card came out.

The stamp is Divine Tilda, by Magnolia of Sweden,colored with Copic Markers.  The frame around her was traced from a Spellbinders die and cut by hand.  I then used a clear crackle medium called One Step Crackle by DecoArt and then brushed over it with Recolections glitter paint in Chocolate.


The fence, honeycomb, sunflower, branches and leaves are DooHickeys dies by Magnolia.  The fence and honeycomb were crackled and painted like the frame.  I then added some prills to the honeycomb and branches.


I die cut the words several times and glued them together to give them some dimension and then went over them with Distress Ink.

Here you can see the crackle effect a little bit better.  I've seen how much nicer the Tim Holtz crackle looks and have ordered it to replace this brand.  Oops!  I totally forgot to add the Wink of Stella to the bee's wings before taking the pictures...

Copic Markers:  Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, R20  Hair: E21, E25, E27, E29  Dress: YR21, YR24, YR30, YR31, G21, G85  Boots: E51, E53, E57, E59  Background: B32, B34, B91, G21, G85
Distress Inks:  Walnut Stain, Rusty Hinge

Thank You for stopping and taking a look.  I look forward to seeing you again soon.  Have a great day, and better tomorrows.

♥ Laura C.
