Lift challenge #100

Happy anniversary to the "Lift Challenge". It is the 100th edition of this great challenge. Although I have been absent for a while in blogland due to tests and work I noticed somewhere on the Internet this milestone. I don't participate very often in this challenge, but I always admire the lifts people create. For this anniversary I'd love to take part in the festivities :). This afternoon I had some spare time and though it is a hard challenge this time, I gave it a try. I am not a star with distress ink or water colouring so I pulled out my spectrum noirs, a piece of vellum and a birthday stamp + die set from PTI and created this card. I always struggle with adhering vellum to paper, but I have bought a glue spray recently and this works perfectly well! However, the smell of the glue is awful...

Cornelie and Marjan, congrats and I hope you will provide us with many more lift cards in the future!

So happy for you

One of my fellow students at the Teacher Trainings Course graduated last month. I sent her this card with a very true sentiment, as I am really happy for her and proud of her.
With ink, water and a brush I made a background on watercolour paper. After letting it dry I stamped the leaves from the SU set 'Friends and Flowers' in red to get a repeating pattern. With a darker pink ink I splashed a little. I heat embossed an PTI sentiment on vellum and finally I added some sequins.

Thanks for coming by!
