Trying for a DT!

Good Tuesday afternoon everyone!

The 'Town Scrapper' located in Petrolia, Ontario, is looking for 2 GDT team members for the month of June and July.
I have been buying stamps from 'The Town Scrapper' for more than a year now, so I thought I might try for this. Phebe has been a wonderful person to do business with - she is happy, obliging, quick to answer emails and quick to send her product. I wish I lived in the same town so I could go to her store and shop shop shop!!!!

Here are the details to try out for her DT: ~ the must do's:

You must use a Nestibillity
No ribbon
Keep it simple
Perfection is not a must but a love for the absolute.

Phebe did ask for a 'High Hopes' or 'Greeting Farm' Stamp to be used, but she also said you could use whatever stamp you had if you didn't have those. I have ordered some High Hopes stamps, but they have not arrived yet :o( Phebe also wished for us to hand paint our card. Well, I was so looking forward to that as I love painting. As a matter of fact I have been teaching painting, as well as Prismacolor and unscented MS to a lady in Florida on line since just after Christmas!
However when I went to get my water colour paper I found I was all out !!!!!!! So I am doing my card with Copics and hoping for the best!

Here is my card for 'The Town Scrapper'

I laid my card down in the hopes that the boots and wings would be shown to better advantage as they have Stickles and Crystal Lacquer on them.

I then took a close up so Phebe could see my colouring better.

I used Stampin'Up Vanilla Cardstock and unknown DP I have had for a very long time. I also made this card a different size than usual it is 9 inches long and folded at 4 1/4 inches so that I was able to use a fancy border punch down the right hand side, with Fiskars water punch.
I coloured with Copics, and used a Signo Uni-ball white pen for the highlights.
I then cut out my stamped and coloured image with the large oval fancy Nestibillity
I then used 3 D tape to mount my oval onto my DP
I applied Diamond Stickles to Tilda's wings and Crystal Lacquer to her boots.
I used Zip Dry glue to stick on the bubble gum pink baubbles.

Thank you Phebe for this opportunity. I hope you enjoy my card.
