Inspiration from Etsy

This is for the Inspiration Challenge this week. Stef asked us to be inspired by a fabulous Etsy site called Groovy Inclinations.
I chose this cool calendar cover for mine:

This was pretty involved (for me anyway!)....I painted directly on the mask with white acrylic paint then picked it up and laid it on top of the black paper. Then I sprayed the top with lime glimmer mist and the bottom with cherry blossom. Ok, I lied it wasn't that involved but if you saw the mess I made you would think so! Fun site, thanks Stef!

Here is a close up of the glimmery goodness!

recipe: stamps- Papertrey Ink Giga Guide Lines
Paper- black, white
Ink- Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist- Lime Twist, Cherry Blossom, black
accessories- Maya Road Mask

Getting on the Bandwagon....

Happy New Year! 2010 can you believe it!

Following along with Ali Edwards idea I have chosen the word COMMIT for 2010. Many times I have an idea or a mission and just don't follow through. I have submitted things to magazines for publication once or twice and then get discouraged when I don't hear anything. Or an idea bangs around my head and I just don't get the COMMITMENT to follow it thorough. Well, that is my mission this year. If I want something I will COMMIT entirely to it.

So, I wanted to get back into playing my challenges on easy place for me to start is always the Inspiration Challenge. Stef always uses such a great site...
Today's inspiration site was an etsy store called Design Spirit Studio.
I chose this clock as my inspiration:


And here is my card....
recipe: stamps- Artful Inkables Olive You
paper- Making Memories (dots), real red, black, apricot appeal, unk green scrap
ink- PTI fresh Snow, black versafine
accessories- ribbon, watercolor pencils
