PTI March Blog Hop... Glossy!

* This is my 3rd post for the day (yikes!  What the heck am I going to show the rest of this week?!)... I would love it if you had a chance to check out my first two posts... SweetStamps.com Challenge and a chance to win a $20 shopping spree, as well as my Ombre card in post #2...

It's PTI Blog Hop day... woot woot!!!  This month's blog hop was all about the word glossy.  A little while ago I had picked up some white glossy cardstock, and with no real plan for it I put it in one of my paper holders, and forgot it was there ( I think my paper holder really hides things from me on purpose, hehehehe!)... but when I saw the word glossy for the theme of this hop the momory of my cardstock came back to me ( memory... all alone in the moonlight...).  After making several cards and failing I finally came up with this little beauty...


(I took this side picture of the card hoping it would show the glossiness of the paper, but alas you'll just have to take my word for it)

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: PTI, Glossy Cardstock
Stamps: PTI
Ink: StazOn Jen Black
Coloring Medium: various Copics
Sharpie in Silver

Tip: when coloring with copics try not to let the marker touch the staz-on ink or it will smear the ink and get all over the tip of your copic.  (Ask my light yellow Copic how I know this...grrrr!)

I went out of my comfort zone a few times with this card by adding no extra embellishments, and I did quite a few hand drawn doodles ( ie: the leaves, frame, and dots)

I am so happy you had a chance to stop by and visit my little ol' blog and I hope you have a wonderful day!
Happy Crafting!
Lisa
