Cynthia Gathering Mushrooms

Good morning, it's time to announce the winner of my blog candy from the Operation Write Home blog hop!
The winner is...  Diane L. !!

What a kewl box and what an Awesome thing you are doing with OWH. Never heard of it before today. Thanks for this opportunity DianeL Diane, I'll be in contact with you soon!
 I also had several people in the comments ask about the tutorial for the box, it can be found HERE on Kirsten's blog. 

Now for today's card!  It's June 1st and as you might know I'm a new design team member for The Stamping Boutique.  We were issued a challenge by Tracey yesterday if we wanted to accept it.  You know me and challenges, I'm in!  The challenge was to take this new image she just finished drawing the and make a card and post it on as many galleries and challenges as we could before June 14th.  You might be seeing this image more than once here before that date, who knows! 

She's called Cynthia Gathering Mushrooms and I believe I read on The Stamping Boutique blog that she's free if you join The Stamping Boutique group on Paper Craft Planet.  I'd go check it out if I were you!

Cynthia is colored with Copic markers C0, C3, C6, W0, W1, W3, RV91, RV93, RV 95, R02, Y35, Y38, B91, B93, E0000, E000, E00, E31, E37, E55 & E55.  Living dangerously I cut her out with my friends SU Top Note die (after coloring her) and sponged Palette Seascape ink around her after masking.  Added some clouds that are hard to see and partially matted her on another SU Top Note die in black.  

My color combination is a little odd but I hadn't tried the RV91, RV93 & RV95 markers yet and just had to...  The body of the card is Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise, the blue panel SU Brocade Blue and the embossed panel is a scrap of Neenah Solar White air brushed using the RV markers I mentioned above.   The ribbon is Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise dotted satin and half pearls by Want2Scrap.  I also added some glitz with a Copic Spica glitter marker.  I know it's almost impossible to see in the photo, but it looks good in real life.
