Try it out Tuesday - Challenge no 1/Jane and her jewellery

We are launching a new challenge called "Try it out Tuesday" at the new Susana's Custom Art and Card Design blog. This first challenge is to create a card or project in black, white, grey and another pop colour of your choice. You should use at least one image from the stamps available at Susana's. You can upload your creations to SCS or PCP with the keyword "TIOT1"

Here's my DT card for this very first challenge. I decided to go with Jane from the Rubber Romance selection + the Happy Words stamp from Susana's own collection stamped in silver.
Please read further down for all the card ingredients.

Looking fwd to see what you ladies will come up with for our first challenge. So don't hesitate - pop over to the Susana's blog or PCP and participate in all the fun.


Card ingredients:
* Cardstock: Black - from our local shop Pysselakuten
* DPs: Silver Chandalier from and Formal Affair/English Ivy from - both purchased in our local shop Pysselakuten.
* Colours: Jane is coloured with my Dekorima aquarelle colours. Highlights with white gel pen, silver stickle and pink stickle for her lipstick.
* Bling: Sliver Rhinestones as her jewellery from purchased at Pysselakuten.
* Other: Flowers made out of cardstock and DP with my flower punch. Spacers received from sweet Marlene to add additional "bling effect" on the flowers.
