Hey Y'all!!

Happy Sunday and hope all is well. Today is the 19th of the month and y'all know what that means?! I will share my IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® May 2013 Themed project to y'all!!

This months theme is to create a Self Portrait project! This project was pretty FUN!! I had to create a project that represented "Me"  and it goes a lil somethin' like this.......CHECK IT!!!

I LOVE my Family, I LOVE Music(playing the piano and teaching), I love IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® inks, I LOVE Blue and Green, I LOVE distressing and the splatter technique, I LOVE CAS, I LOVE Stickers, I LOVE Wood Veneers, I LOVE Sequins, I LOVE gettin' messy, I LOVE Art, I LOVE Stamps, I LOVE Neutrals and I LOVE just making cards!! I hope I got it all here in this!!

Here are the IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko®  products that I used to create this project:
 IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink(Teal Zeal) and IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® All-Purpose Ink™(Green Apple)

Here are the directions to this card

1. Create card from Blue cardstock.
2. Distress and adhere Black PP onto card.
3. Using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™(Teal Zeal) stamp piano keys onto Solar White cardstock.
4. Using paintbrush and IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® All-Purpose Ink™(Green Apple) splatter onto Solar White cardstock.
5. Distress image panel and adhere to Black PP panel.
6. Adhere Wood Veneer people onto image panel
7. Adhere blue sequins to card.
8.Create "love" banner and create heart and adhere to card using pop up dots.
