VIP Blog hop and Shop

 Lots to share with you tonight! Here is my card with the newest "Who's that Girl?" from My Favorite Things. This is "Who's that Mummy?". How fun as we are thinking about fall.... I wanted to make a mummy wrap for my card to mimic the image so I decided to take photos along the way.....Here is my process:
 I make my own little shimmer mists by using copic refill, blender and some mica powder.
 I spritzed my twill tape in a non-precise way. This makes splotches here and there. It dries super quick because it is alcohol ink....love that!
 I wrapped it around my card and tied it in a knot.
 I continued wrapping and secured with a piece of scotch tape.
 I finished the inside so that it would look tidy by laying a piece of patterned paper over top. This also adds extra stability to the card. Next I colored up my image.....here is how I did it:
 Base tone....leaving large sections white.
 Mid tone
 Deepest tone
 I went back and blended with my E40 and then faded to white with my blender pen.
 Background base tone.
 Mid and Deep tone, then I blended with YR01 and YR12.
 Floor base tone.
 Mid and deep tones and then blended.
 This image is the perfect size for this "Tag you're it" Die-namic.
 I wanted to stain up my card a little more so I distressed with concord ink.
 I used the new die that comes with the VIP kit to make my felt flower. It cuts thick felt like buttah!
Here is a look at the VIP kit.....and now I am sending you off for some more inspiration.
