Good Morning, our challenge this week to use hinges from "Fabulous Finds", this is a work horse cart and one of my all time favorites. We were also treated this week with digi stamps from "Shelly's Images", wow some great images, so please give her a visit. Our team used a wonderful combination so be sure to visit our Bitten By the Bug 2 Blog.
When I saw Lady Liberty, I knew I would be able to challenge myself further by doing a "verdigris" patina with my copics, it was harder than I thought it would be and I still need some practice, but all in all this was a fun challenge. I used "Making Memories" and "DCWV" patterned papers for this card. Misc. crystals and brads.
"Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me.
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
It's from a poem written by Emma Lazarus and was not actually added to the statue until 1901. While the statue was a gift from the French the pedestal was to be provided by America. Emma wrote the poem as part of the fund raising efforts for the pedestal.
Last but not least this is my first card completely done with the Gypsy. I have loaded all of my carts and she sits on my table with the Cricut, I have not used DS for a whole entire week. I love it. I took the Gypsy last week with me for a presentation on a commission I was seeking and my client was blown away with the presentation, she couldn't believe that she could see and choose her embellishments, right then and there. Happy Monday everyone. Hugs
