Stampers with an Attitude Bling it Up Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Stampers with an Attitude Bling it Up Blog Hop.  This month I am following  {Melissa Robinson.}  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog on the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have listed all of the participating blogs at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

This month our Stampers with an Attitude are Blinging up their artwork.  I LOVE Bling!!!  The more the better!  That is why I am known as the Bling Queen!

I just got back from the Close to My Heart Convention and I saw so much truly amazing artwork.  I have had a few Picture My Life kits sitting around and after seeing what other CTMH Consultants have done with these kits, I picked out a card whose sentiment I loved and set out to make an inspirational piece of art for my wall.

I really needed to spend the time creating and playing with the Skylark paper pack.  The base of my artwork is two pieces of chipboard adhered together.  Then I started ripping pieces of my patterned paper, inking the edges with chocolate ink, and adhering it to the chipboard with my Bonding Memories glue.

I used my favorite Dreamer (B1439) Stamp Set and then added the Picture My Life Skylark card matted with Chocolate cardstock and then with our new Teal Glitter Paper (orderable 8/1).

I added lots of flourishes, clear bling, a charm from our Base and Bling collection, and some flowers from the Skylark assortment.  And then I covered the entire piece of artwork with Glossy Mod Podge.
