You're a Star !

     I do love Fridays because I get to play with images from QKR Stampede or Eureka Stamps (sister companies) for our weekly challenge at QKR.  Remember, we now have an "Anything Goes" theme every week but we throw in an optional twist if you want to use it.  This week the twist is "Thank You" cards.

     I chose an image I'd not used before, "Full Moon," and I added my own sentiments.

     I used a combo of ProMarkers and Copics to color this image (thinking about my blogging friend, Lynn, and how much she loves blue!), then used a Sue Wilson die to cut it.  I used other dies from that same set to cut the dark blue frame.  Unfortunately, that inlaid frame was the same size as the image piece so I used a new technique - I cut it lengthwise down the middle, spread it apart, and layered the image on top.

    I added the matted sentiment pieces and a small bow (dyed from white to that shade of blue with a ProMarker) and called it finished.  This is going to be used for a grammar school secretary on Secretary's Day next month.

     Remember, you can use any images you like in our challenges but if you use an image from QKR Stampede or Eureka Stamps, your entry will go into a separate draw for those image users only.  That increases your chances of winning by a huge amount and then you'll have more QKRs for future challenge entries.  It's a win-win all the way around !  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
