Inktegrity Sneak Peak... YAY!

I am so honored and excited to have been chosen to be a part of Joni's first Design Team for Inktegrity. It is awesome working with such a talented group of artists! Thank you, Joni, for trusting me with your adorable images!

Tomorrow is the big release day for the "Dream Big" series. So for a taste of what the excitement is all about, I am featuring 3 of my cards from this line. Check back tomorrow for two more! You are going to want these images, so see the end of this post for info on winning all 5!

Feel Better Bug

I was going for a soft, comfy, muted look so I "water-colored" the image using SU! ink and blender pens. Doesn't show up great in the photos, but I added Stickles tothe ladybug to give her some sparkle. I made a bow with linen thread and added it to the stem of the apple, then tied some to each of the buttons for a bit of texture. The sentiment (ok have to find it credit the source lol) is stamped on Vellum. The background is Cuttlebug-ed with the Swiss Dots embossing envelope.

Loving Bug

Another water-colored image using SU! ink and blender pens. For a bit of fun and dimension, I added an acrylic button and tied ribbon to the front with linen thread. The sentiment "Say I Love You OFTEN" is from PrintWorks.

ABC Inspiration Bug

For this card I wanted something a bit different. I created a tri-fold so the image would stick out a bit. The borders are created with Cuttlebug Floral Borders dies, and attached using the Xyron 150 (what would I do without that cute little thing!). I decided on mainly primary colors for this card to evoke the feeling of primary school, as well as used Prismacolor pencils to further the school theme. The sentiment is by Inkadinkado. I thought it was perfect for this image and the feeling was trying to evoke with this card. Grade school is all about dreams... we are anything and everything we imagine at that age. The sky is the limit ;)

Drum roll here...
