Hello You!

Thursday, May 8, 2014

The other day on Facebook I saw a post that the Gallery Idol audition was open for 2014.  Last year my friend Lesley participated (and made it all the way to the top five!!).  I had never heard of it before but cheered her on and voted for her all the way through it.  When I saw that it was beginning again I briefly thought about trying out.  I asked some of my stamping friends if they were going to do it and was met with a chorus of resounding "no."  But it was my friend Sylvia who (inadvertently) convinced me to try.  When I told her about it she just smiled and called me a "card dork."  That's when I knew that I had to do it.  If nothing else for all the card dorks out there.  So for better or worse here's my entry..


For the audition we have to use decorative tape on our card and since I've got a rather large supply of washi tape I figured I was up to the challenge.  We can actually enter up to three cards for this first round so this probably won't be the only card I make, but we'll see.  I've got an idea or two kicking around in my head so I hope to find some time to make at least one more.

For this card I followed the first week of May challenges at Viva la Verve.  There's a sketch and a color combo and I combined both on my card. 


Thanks for stopping by!  (And wish me luck)!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Papillon Potpourri (SU); So 80's, Hand Lettered Hello (WPlus9)
Paper:  White Linen (Ellen Hutson); Smoky Slate, So Saffron, Whisper White, Vellum (SU)
Ink:  So Saffron, Smoky Slate, Tempting Turquoise (SU)
Accessories:  Pierced Square STAX (My Favorite Things); Stitched Mats:  Rectangle (Lil' Inker Designs); Basic Rhinestones (SU); washi tape
