Clean House = Lazy Stamper

It seems little miss Hanna has been cleaning her house and making us all look bad. Seriously, what a slacker *wink* I adore this set by Hanna Stamps called Domestic Goddess. This card was created using SC157 and was made for HSC10 (Hanna Stamps Challenges that you can find in the Hanna Stamps forum on Splitcoaststampers). The challenge was to add bling your images. I had so much fun playing with these bright funky colors and I USED MY NEW PRISM PAPERS CARD STOCK. I know, don't die of shock! LOL! I needed a color that matched perfectly with the designer paper I was using and PRISM happened to offer one called Frosted Kiwi! I was coloring my image and realized the color was not exactly an SU color, so I blended two colors while watercoloring (gable green and yo yo yellow) -- have you ever done that before to get an exact color match? I was really excited when it worked. Hanna's hair was colored with twinkling H2O's blended with barely banana ink (apparently today was blending day). I was really pleased with the results. I added diamond stickles to the bubbles on the card background piece also for even more bling! Hope you like her!

Manda,

I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! I just read on the Hanna website that you are a permanent design team member now - WAY TO GO GIRLIE! I have long been a fan of your work, in fact, you were one of the first blogs I ever started reading. I knew it was just a matter of time until you were on design teams. Soon they will be fighting over you - just wait...

Happy Weekend!

May I just say that Miss Hanna is putting me to shame this week?!?! My kitchen is in an uproar of white dust, removal of the "popcorn" ceiling, spraying on and troweling a new texture, plus plastic draping and new ceiling paint ... and ... and .....!

Hanna darling ... you are making me look soooo BAD!!!

Love your stuff, Amanda! *wink*
