I'm so excited!!! I just found out this card made the honours gallery!!! Jen, the challenge hostess for Hats Off To You picked my card to go in the Dancefloor. {grin}
I've just been busy checking out the others and they are really, really good. It's amazing what people can do in 45 minutes. I haven't been able to check out all the VSN submissions - I heard there were well over 1000!
So if you want some good eye candy, head out onto the Dancefloor and get jiggy :-) I don't see the Dancefloor open yet, but all the cards are listed at the top of this thread. The Dancefloor should open soon - go to the main page of the Gallery, look down at the bottom for Special Collections, click through and click on Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights. Jan 2008 should be there soon.
The Deets:
The challenge was to make a card with a hat on it somewhere, somehow. I have always loved watercolouring and those types of line art stamps are always a favourite so I reached for my Summer by the Sea set and watercoloured this little girl using watercolor wonder crayons and an aquapainter. I like those when I need a quick, fabulous watercolour. Other watercolouring media have their strengths, but when I want something quick that matches my paper, I go for my WWC's. Once I had her painted, I added some layers and embellishments (including some hodgepodge hardware I vowed to start using instead of hoarding) and I was done!

Supplies: Stamps: Summer by the Sea, Warm Words; Ink: black stazon, mellow moss; Paper: watercolour, elegant eggplant, pale plum, mellow moss; Accessories: hemp twine, eggplant grosgrain ribbon, pewter hodgepodge hardware, watercolor wonder crayons, aquapainter
