If the Crown Fits and some news!

Click here for My Play Date Cafe Challenge Post

It's time for another DT Challenge at Creative Inspirations Paint - this week Kassi issued the following challenge - Book Club.... find inspiration from your favorite book.  I'll be honest with you, I'm so not a book reader, so instead I found inspiration using the Wonderland Collage Plate from Artistic Outpost, it's still a book theme, right! 

I combined this challenge with the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge - Mask Basics.  I had a totally different project in mind for Linda's Challenge, but remembered I gave the mask I wanted to use to my BFF!  Wanting to still play along, I found a way to incorporate the Challenge here on my card, by using the Damask Mask on my Graphic 45 paper.  It works, don't you think?

This week I've used the Creative Inspirations Paints as a resist.  The image is stamped in Black, then painted and heat set.  Why heat set you ask?  I'm impatient when it comes to dry time and wanted to keep moving.  I used the Out of the Box Technique to frame the image, then applied Pumice Stone Distress Ink with an Ink Blending tool, covering my Vanilla card stock and the image.  Once the card stock was covered, I quickly buffed any excess ink from the image.

This is my last post as a Creative Inspirations Design Team Member, as I'm stepping down to explore some other creative opportunities.  Thanks Molly for having me as part of your team, I just love the shimmer your product adds to my projects!

I think you found the perfect source of inspiration with this cool stamp set, and you created a completely fabulous card with it, Lisa! The Damask mask looks fabulous on the G45 paper-- like a professional print job, in fact-- central image is colored so beautifully! It's gorgeous, as always!

Best of luck with the new adventures you're about to embark upon. I know you'll be wildly successful, wherever you decide to devote your creative energy! And I keep forgetting to tell you how much I like your new photo! ♥
