Stamping Boutique Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to this month's Stamping Boutique Blog hop! Are you enjoying the hop? Haven't the DT ladies pulled off some awesome cards? I always say it is not hard to create an awesome card with Tracey's images...and that holds true with this new line that Tracey is debuting! There is so much feeling and emotion in these images. If you have gotten to my blog via Kym W's blog then you are on the right path! If not be sure to start at the beginning of the hop which is at Tracey's blog! For my card, I used the Swan image. My coloring is with copic markers and the sky was chalked with pink and blue. The wings were coated with crystal effects and then I added some gold glitter while it was wet. The sentiment was computer generated. Although this card is very very simple in that I didn't really embellish much, I like it that way...I really didn't want to take away from the image.
Now....there is a PRIZE!! Yes, the blog hop winner will receive an UNRELEASED image from the Enchanted line! That image will be on display on Tracey's blog today...so be sure to take a peak at it! ALSO...Tracey is going to give all Boutique shoppers a whopping 40% off during the hop until midnight tonight! Be sure to stop on over and take advantage of that awesome sale!
From here, you need to hop on over to the last stop on the hop...Rhonda's blog. She always has some stunning creations!

Thanks so much for visiting me today...enjoy the hop, and happy shopping!

HUGS,
Vicki
