Glossy or Crackle Medium Challenge

My project:

For Scrappy Frogs Challenge Blog this week, we needed to complete a project using a glossy medium or a crackle medium. I chose to use Glossy Accents because I am becoming addicted to using this product on my Magnolia images!
Here are some close ups of my project:

I started this project with this wonderful Magnolia image that I received in a stamped image swap. I just love her! I colored her using my Copic Sketch Markers.

Face/Skin: E0000, E00, E21, R20
Hair: YR23, Y23, E35
Blue Jeans: B91, B95, B97Rain Boots: Y0000, Yoo, Yo2, Y06Wings: Y0000, G20, G40
Top: Y00, YG03, YG11, YG13Cap: YG01, YG13, YG23

Next I applied Rock Candy Ranger Stickles to the wings to give them that great texture. I also gave her rain boots a thick even coat of Glossy Accents to make them shine like real rain boots.

I cut my patterned cardstock 1/2 inch smaller than my card base. I cut a piece of the patterned paper the size of my card for an accent strip. I stamped my sentiment from the Studio G clear stamps on the lower left hand corner using Versamark ink, and I embossed it using white embossing power mixed with diamond embossing powder.

I cut a piece of pink cardstock and a piece of polka dot cardstock. I used my EK Success Corner Rounder to punch the strips and make the scalloped edges. I tied my ribbon around the plain patterned cardstock strip. I used a glue dot and some ScorTape to adhere the ribbon in place.

Next I turned to my Cricut to cut the scalloped ovals. I used my From the Kitchen cartridge. Using the body for the sheep, I cut the piece from the polka dot cardstock and from the solid pink cardstock. I set the dial to "real size" and then cut one at 3" and one at 2.5".

I adhered all of the layers using my Glue Glider Pro except for my Magnolia image. I used pop dots to adhere her to the oval accents. Lastly I grabbed my flowers, rhinestones, and glue dots for the finishing touches.

The papers for my project are from Cosmo Cricket's paper pack Everafter and Girl Friday. The card base is from DCWV Fall Paper Pack. The ribbon is from Michael's Value Ribbon Packs. The Rhinestones and flowers are from Kaiserkraft.

I love how she turned out.
