MMSC #50 and the game has changed

This is kind of wierd really. I have played the Midnight Madness sketch challenge for quite some time now - and now I am not a player anymore. For some reason I have been chosen to be on the Design Team for the next 3 months. It is very cool, but I must admit that it is kind of scary too. The game has changed!

I did not know how to color this image, but then I came to think about this cool technique I saw once, were you cut out a little pice of the image, colored this piece an poped it on foamdots to raise it. It really makes that part of the image stand out. Can't remeber where I saw this technique described. Sorry about that, but it is as easy as I just told you.

I put a piece of acetate on my rose, attached the acetate with some Diamond Glaze so it got a really nice shine.

The flowers, leafs and charms are all stuff I got from my aunt Wenche. Thank you!

The DP is from TPC studio and is called Time to travel - French Phrases. I don't know were the image is from, but I have used stamps from Stempelglede and Tim Holtz.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Now go check out the Midnight Madness blog and make a card following one of these two sketches!

Once again, it's "YOUR PICK" Make it fancy, clean and simple, or somewhere in-between. Remember to click on the sneak peek button on the side bar for the following weeks sketch each Friday.
Enter one style or both this week.
Just have fun and come play with us :)

Wonderful vintage feel to your card, Gunn, and I really like how a single rose is spotlighted on the image -- gorgeous!!

Gunn, you know why you are on the DT...it's coz of your big heart, wacky sense of humor and that amazing talent of yours...all that wrapped up in one package we just couldn't let you go!!! This piece of art is another stunning creation of yours filled with beautiful embellishments and I love the technique you used to "pop" the flower and having that be the only color on the image. Your aunt is a true gem giving you all those fabulous embellies!
I'm so happy your are on the team with us!
