Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge 25

No time for fooling is going to be a busy day here at Dee's Studio. I'm starting off with Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge 25, which also marks the first anniversary of the Divine Diva challenge. To celebrate, anyone who joins us and posts a link to their challenge card on Lori's blog will be eligible for a prize.

The inspiration for this week's challenge is this catalog page from Pier One Imports.

For my card, I used a the Glitter Masking Tutorial from the October/November 2008 Technique Junkies Newsletter to recreate the flower design in Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter. Let me just say that while my studio wasn't clean when I got done, it certainly did sparkle!

The adorable image I used on this card is Clowd from the brand spankin' new DoodleFactory Creatures II collection from Starving Artistamps. The collection is being released today and will be available for purchase around noon (or maybe even a little sooner). I'll be posting some more cards using the new Creatures during my lunch break, so be sure to stop by the studio a little later.

I had a ton of fun with this challenge, and I can't wait to see what the other Divine Diva team members came up with. You can see all of their creations on their blogs: Anne, Chris, Lori, Julie, and Kerri.

See  you later!

Card details:  Barbara Trombley's Art Institute Glitter - Key Lime, Mystery, and Atlantis; flowers and image colored with Copic markers.
