Moulin Rouge Inspired

This card was for the Moulin Rouge Inspired Challenge for VSN - the challenge image was a cool collage, below.

Obviously I loved the blue picture, but all the warm, bright colors around it were very cool.

And I know I've done a BILLION variations of this same card, but hey - I like it. I really don't know what is going to happen when this butterfly stamp falls apart. (Wonderful Wings, Stampin' Up!)

I colored the image with my Koh-I-Noor pencils and blended them with Gamsol. Did I ever tell you the best way to use this stuff?

8 Billion years ago, when the earth was young, I went a ginormous stamp expo where a lady was demonstrating this technique. She sold the Gamsol in these little bottles with fuzzy tops - sort of like the things you moisten envelopes with. You just turn the bottle upside down and get the fuzzy part wet, and then you can just stick your little blender onto the fuzzy thing when you need some more.

Even though you are wowed by this great description, I will take a picture for you. :)

The Google Reader Webinar Part One was last night and it was awesome!! We had a lot of fun and hopefully everyone learned a lot. I will be scheduling the second one today or tomorrow, so don't forget to sign up. The actual webinar will be before Thanksgiving. If you let me know a good day, I will try to accomodate everyone!

Have a great Tuesday.


  1. I love Wonderful Wings, one of my fav sets. Great job and what other colour would you have done it in but blue ha ha ha Have a good one, Hugs n' Stuff, Lynne

  2. What's a "webinar"? Is it like a class online?


  3. Very pretty! I love your work and butterflies are always a fav of mine!

  4. Yay! Butterflies make me happy. This card is simply beautiful. How funny that I watched this movie Sunday night.... The hills are alive with incantoneous something or other.....
