Guest Designer-Kimberly Wiener

Hello friends! 
Thanks to your continuing participation and entries, I got to know some talented card-makers ever since I started this challenge blog. It is my pleasure to welcome a returned guest designer-Kimberly Wiener. I got to know Kimberly through her beautiful entries and have seen her growth as a card-maker in the last few years. I am so happy that Kimberly agreed to share her new project with us all. We sure are in for a treat! Let's dive in, shall we?

Kimberly: I am a HUGE fan of Virginia and the Virginia's View Challenge and I am excited to be here and just blessed by this welcoming community of encouragement and creativity.  The current challenge is bright,SPECTACULAR, and gorgeous! I have been using Spectrum Aquamarkers and Tim Holtz distress markers in my water coloring lately and happy that I have been invited to show you my latest creation.

Kimberly: On my watercolor palette I scribble my color primary Spectrum Aquamarkers and after stamping the image in Versamark and heat embossing in gold, working light to dark I color the blooms on the mixed media paper.  Once dry I add darker distress markers on areas I want to emphasize and add a light color wash throughout the image and around it in blues.


Kimberly: I pop up my stamped sentiments on double sided foam tape and before adding attach a micro glue dot to hold a few inches of wound gold thread in place.  A few more micro glue dots for sparkling sequins and a trim down to 4x5.25 I attach to a standard A2 size (4.2x5.5) I made with a lovely turquoise card stock sheet.
Kimberly: If you have not already joined in this challenge, I sure hope that you are inspired to join in. Happy Crafting!



Isn't it GOR-GE-OUS or what? My sincere thanks to Kimberly for sharing her talent with us. Will you please stop by Kimberly's blog to give her some blog love?
There is still time to create and enter the challenge! Thanks for stopping by!
