Very, very happy "Get Creative" news...


2011 might have been a difficult year for my family and myself, but the end of the year is bringing me some very happy news...

Irini asked me to become a member of Get Creative Creative Team!!! :D :D :D I can't begin to explain how happy I am! I've been following the blog for more than a year now, and I participate in the card challenges because the inspiration provided by the creative team has always given me ideas to make cards! I am really very happy!

My first card as the creative team member is for the sketch challenge for December 20th - you can see the challenge here:

The card that I made is the following:

If you want to get super-duper inspiration, you can visit the Get Creative blog here to see the Creative Team's creations...

And remember, the sponsor for this month is Unity Stamps with their wonderful stamps! Seriously now, just a few days ago I found in a store in Madrid Unity Stamps and I just couldn't resist, I bought (another) one. I will make something soon.

For a chance to win, you can make a card until December 28th!

And a few words for the card...

There are only 5 days left till Christmas, but what I wanted to make was a thank you card dedicated to Irini and the Get Creative creative team for their very warm welcome!

I wanted to make something different than a rectangle, so I used the Nestabilities Wonky Rectangles to make the card base. To make the background for the front of the card and give it some dimension, I used the Dots Embossing Folder by Sizzix.

The background of the green part of the card is made with stamp and pearlised water. This is what I did: First I coloured the white cardstock with Distress Ink. Then I sprayed the Vine Background stamp by Hero Arts and Basic Grey with pearlised water that I prepared with water and Perfect Pearl. I stamped my green cardstock with the stamp and since distress inks reacts to water, I got the result you can see on the photo. What you cannot see is that there is a pearlised effect on the vines...

If you have any queries regarding the technique I tried to describe, just ask me and I will reply to you.

I hope you like it!
