Viva Blog Hop with SCACD!




Good Morning!

I am thrilled to be part of a very special blog hop this morning ! A recent new addition to Quixotic Paperie has been the Viva Decor product line. We have all fallen in love, and so, we're having a little blog hop to celebrate!

Joining the Quixotic Paperie Design Team on this hop we have the fantastic Susana's Custom Art & Card Design Design Team! Susana is a good friend of Elaine's and SCACD has become like an international sister store to Quixotic Paperie! We're collaborating on some crafty adventures, and this is hopefully the first of many!

We hope you will join us on this hop and be inspired in ways to use the Viva Decor product range! You will also have the chance to win some fabulous candy - both Elaine and Susana will be giving away a pack of the most popular Viva Decor Pens (Ice White Pearl Pen, Holographic Glitter Liner and the Clear Gloss Gel Pen).
All you will have to do to win is answer a question at each store blog - 1 entry at each STORE blog per person please! Both blog candy draws will close on 31st July 2010.
In the UK/Europe you can find Viva Decor products at Quixotic Paperie. If you're in the US/Canada then Susana carries the Viva Decor range at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.

ON TO THE HOP!You should have hopped over here from Aud. If not, you might want to pop over to the Quixotic Paperie Store Blog and start from the beginning!

For this special hop I chose to use one of my favourite Kraftin Kimmmie stamps 'Charlotte' (She is is also available in SCACD for those in the US!). Charlotte was the first Kraftin Kimmie I bought but is still one of my favourites! I coloured her with copics and used prisma pencils and Sansador to blend in the background.
The papers are Pink Paislee '365 Degrees' and I have gently distressed the edges.

The VIVA products I have used are the Black Pearl pen and the Holo Irisdescent Glitter Liner (Viva Glitter Liner and Pearl pens are available in the US at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design).Both of these are fab and easy products to use and now sit within easy reach on my crafting table!
You can also find the stamp I used today at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.

Your next stop on the hop is DANNI.

Thanks for your visit today!

Really FAB card Judy! Love the coloring! :) I am still on the fence about these Viva Pearls and like the first commenter I am wondering if it's easy to make the round pearls or is there a learning curve to it? Better look around for more info :)

Hi Judy,

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog!

To answer your question reagrding the backgroun in my photos: I use a big A3 white paper as background, big enough for most of my cards, then I put the cards as near to the front of the A3 paper as possible. Then, when you shoot the photo, try to use as low an F stop number as your camera allows and focus only on the card. This blurs the white background to the max. Hope this helps! This is as much as I've worked out so far :-) Still learning ...

Hugs,

Lily
