Today, you are in for some awesome treats as we celebrate the Michelle Perkett Studio first Design Team's departure with a Blog Hop! It's been six months since this wonderful group of people began designing all kinds of wonderful challenges for us, so we wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of them for all of their wonderful inspiration! You'll be able to see all kinds of eye candy from all over the world on this blog hop. Isn't it great how we're able to see so much talent from all over the world thanks to the internet?
If you came here from Pattie's Blog, then you are in the right spot. If you get lost along the way, you can always go back to Michelle Perkett's blog for all of the stops.
Since I wanted to really highlight Michelle's new image, Leilani, I made this pocket card on a 5" x 7" base. I will post a tutorial tomorrow telling you all of the measurements of this card. The DP and stickers are from a page kit from NRN Designs I had bought a couple years ago but could never find a good use for them. Thanking the design team is an excellent reason to use these yummy papers!
Leilani was colored with my favorite medium, colored pencils, and blended with tortillions (paper blending stumps) and baby oil. The highlights were made with a white Sakura gel pen. The "lace" behind the image is actually a paper doily. They are so beautiful, and they also don't make as much bulk or weight on the card like ribbon does. Leilani is popped up with foam adhesives, and the flower stickers by her feet are also from this page set. The DP is "attached" with some white gel pen faux stitches. The fibers are from my stash and Little Black Dress Designs. Don't you just love this 3M Smart Kraft floral ribbon? This was some blog candy that I won from a blogger in Australia.
