LIM Thank You

Well this is an unusually late scheduled post to share a card and  some very good news.
First off the rank is this card for the latest Less is More challenge - use something recycled.

Now I had a little difficulty here, I love to save bits and bobs but what I could use that was recycled, then I found a piece of card that I'd played with around Christmas, using a new technique. I had seen, on one of the Copic sites I think, how to make a water colour effect using Copics and nail varnish remover! You scribble the colour onto a glass surface then spray with the remover. Had to do this in a well ventilated space away from naked flames for obvious reasons! Then very quickly take a mono print from the ink, great effect but it does get on your chest a bit, not one to do on a regular basis. So that is the coloured paper under the die cut butterfly which I cut from a piece of a card which had got a crease in while embossing, hence the margin which is a little larger than I would have liked. The string was in my bit box but was the wrong colour so I inked it with matching Copics and tied it in a knot as there wasn't enough for a bow. Stamped sentiment from the set I borrowed from Di, gave back then borrowed again! Told you I was a cheap skate. The bit of self adhesive bling was rescued from the side of my sequin bits box. 
This is another of  Nich's thank you cards, just a few more to go!

Now for the very good news. As of midnight I am part of the - 

Whoop whoop!!!!!

I love this challenge and entered their DT call not expecting to get anywhere, so I was over the moon when the email dropped into my inbox from the wonderful Kylie asking if I would still like to be on the team. Would I ever! Thanks Kylie, I can't wait to join in the fun and work alongside the rest of a fabulously talented team.
Pop over to see who the girls are who make up the new DT over at ATSM, some you will recognise, some who are fairly new on the scene, but all incredibly talented.

Nite nite :0)

  6. Fabulous card, Julie. I always forget about using negative die cuts and I love the effect you created although a bit worried about the process, be careful of those fumes!!!

Great to be your fellow teamie and looking forward to seeing your creations xx

  11. Beautiful card Julie. LOVE the effect of your design from the copics technique ... luckily you were able to use this gorgeous paper considering all the danger of making it :) Love your CAS design ... the rhinestones are the perfect finishing touch.
