Guest Designer for Arty Divas - Peace Begins With a Smile - Vera Lane Digi

It may be unfair, but what happens in a few days, sometimes even a single day, can change the course of a whole lifetime.

Hey there,

I'm extremely pleased and honored to be Guest Designer this week for Arty Divas Challenge Blog. Thank you so much, Zowie, for bringing a smile to my face and inviting me to  design alongside your amazing Design Team.

Oh, how I love Vera Lane digital stamps!.  I love how incredibly quirky they are and so much fun to color.  I've decided to send this card to my childhood girlfriend for her birthday next month because she's crazy like I am and the peace theme hearkens back to the 60's and some very priceless memories of our high school shenanigans.  We were both God fearing, church going girls, mind we happily remember all the awesomeness!

I colored my little flower child with copics, fussy cut her and adhered her to my background with mounting tape for dimension. My background is a digi scene from Etsy, which I embellished with die cuts and markers. I colored the mini Impression Obsession butterflies with copics and created the centers for the IO blossoms with Nuvo drops.  I added details to the garden flowers and tree with a black fine line marker.  I used pink and green copics to add shading to the grass and tree. The sentiment is computer generated and lined with a black marker.  My white gel pen was perfect for adding some small details to the dress and flowers.

Smiles all around here, and another thanks to Arty Divas for creating a lovely place for artistic types like me to showcase our "masterpieces".

Thanks for visiting.
Go forth and make the world more peaceful with your beautiful smile.
