PPRS New Release Blog Hop Day 3

 
 
 
 
 
 
Hi Bloggers. Here we are on the last, but not least, day of our new release hop. I hope you've had a good time. I sure have!
 
We have two terrific prizes from Prickley Pear, so remember to leave a comment on each of the Design Team members blogs and maybe you'll be the lucky winner!
Prize #1
Prize #2
Now my card today is made, once again, from the CLR025B Steampunk Gears 3 set. I chose to make all three of my hop cards with the same set to show the versatility one set can have. This card is very clean & simple. I've done an old technique by cutting patterned paper into equal parts, inking the edges and gluing them back together on a piece of mat paper like a puzzle. I've done this with stamped images, and it's very pretty as well. If  you try this technique make sure to leave a small gap in between the pieces so the mat paper shows through.
I added a bit of color to my Dragonfly, glittered his body and painted him with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from the same set. I added a bow and some rhinestones to complete my card. CAS!
 
Now if you have come here by way of Tracy's blog you're on the right track. Your next stop along the way is Barb, for some delightful inspiration. Now if you want to start at the beginning you can do so here.
 I'm so pleased you've joined us for this hop, and don't forget to leave your comments for a chance at one of the two prizes we're offering. Good luck!
Hugs, Maureen

  4. Maureen this is stunning!!!! I want to try your bg technique as I have never done it before and it's stunning!!! Smiling!!! I like your matted sentiment and great choice for color on your dragonfly! :) I love that you glittered and glossy accented your dragonfly. Next time, I am going to do that. It looks like you have added a pendant instead of a paper dragonfly!
