I chose to feature the Spring Window set in my reveal card.  It reminds me of something I might see when visiting my daughter in Charleston, SC.  There is also so much lovely architectural design with all the historic buildings so I decided to create this look around the window. 
x


I used three sizes of Spellbinders’ Labels Twenty-Eight layered together and embossed them.  Then I cut out the center with the smallest die used.   This was popped up with dimensionals over the window image.  I stamped the image a second time, fussy cut the floral branch, and popped this up over the original image.  I used a glue pen to add Daisy Velvet Glitter to the center of the flowers.



I repeated the embossing  and trimmed off one of the sides to add the sentiment to the bottom.



I also fussy cut the flowers and pitcher from the second image.  Using a Versamarker, I added Copper, Copper Flame, and Native American embossing powders to the pitcher to give it a metallic look with a touch of patina.  Then I used Dimensional Glue to make dots on the flowers and added Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft.  When it was dry, I added dots of color with three different Copic Markers.  This was popped up over the original.

Please visit my fellow designers to see their inspiring creations.  Don't forget to leave a comment with each Designer to be eligible for the Grand Prize.  We love reading your comments and hope we have inspired you as well.  If you absolutely cannot leave a comment for some reason, please email icinganne@yahoo.com with your comment and the name of the blog or Designer you are commenting about.

~~~~~~~~~
 


The new SNS Creative Challenges also begins today, with lots of prizes and recognition badges.  The theme is always Anything Goes using Loose Glitter, Embossing Powder, and or Flock.

~~~~~~~~~

We hope you enjoy the New Reveals as much as we do!  Last month the winner came from Shona's blog.  Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize winner this month?


Thanks for visiting,

E. Marie
