Chick Challenge #26, Monday Linky Party & a Giveaway

WoW! That is a long title isn't it? Well today I am posting my card for the Chick Challenge #26 that you can find here..
Also I am linking it up to the Monday Linky Party that you can find here..


Papers are from Melody Ross
the Happy was actually a Melody Ross Card That I cut apart
I watercolored the flower with SU Watercolor Crayons
Black Card Base is ProvoCraft CS
Ric Rac is CTMH
Green Glitterbrads are CTMH
TH Antique Linen Distress Ink

This Card is also being linked to the Following Challenges:

365 Cards - Ad Inspired
Party Time Tuesdays- Color/Picture Challenge

RCC49 Color-a-licious with Totally Stampalicious - anything from a Spool (twine, ribbon etc)
The Stamping Boutique - Anything Goes Challenge

I decided to try something on a canvas I found in the Dollar Bin at Michaels so I altered the canvas .. it was originally a picture of a teapot..

I Painted the Canvas Black
then I Heat Embossed the Sentiment &; Flower
using Zing Embossing Powder (Pink)
the Green is from Recollections
I then painted over the Canvas with a glitter paint and used a rag to wipe it from the
sentiment and flower.. I added the Bling from Recollections
I am entering this in the {ippity} Blog Sparkle Challenge
it isn't the prettiest but it's a trial and error thing..

Have a FABULOUS Wednesday!
