Happy Saturday, 3 Girl JAM Friends! Karen N here....and today, I am SUPER stoked to be introducing you to 3 Girl JAM Guest Designer Lucy Evans. Lucy and I have been online scrappy buddies for a LONG time, and let me tell you.....not only is this gal incredibly sweet, but she's full of crazy crafty goodness. Without further ado, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Lucy!
Hi. My name is Lucy. I am a Medical Technologist at a large laboratory. I am married, have 3 adult daughters and one grandson who is 6 years old. I live in a suburb of Chicago. I got hooked on scrapbooking in 1995 when I was shown a Creative Memories brochure. I caught the card making bug while socializing with a bunch of other craft-o-holics on a crafting website. I love making cards, not only for the fun of creating, but also of knowing that it may bring the recipient some joy.
I have been a lover of 3 Girl Jam ribbon for a more than a year. I love the ribbon colors and the way it "Crinkles". I have also purchased some of the burlap ribbon, lace and flair, which I need to play with. I was surprised, nervous and honored when Karen asked me to be a guest designer. The March challenge is to use the colors Yellow, Green and Orange. At first, I thought about jelly beans, because I love them and they are out in the stores. Then I looked at the colors of the 3 Girl Jam ribbon and it reminded me more of warmth and spring. We still have white snow covering the ground and have had below freezing temperatures for months. I am ready for spring! These were also my mom's favorite colors :-) I used a stamp from Unity Stamp Co., some Ranger Distress inks to water color the image. I went over it with some Niji Pearlescent water colors, which are very similar to Twinkling H2O's. the second picture shows the glimmer. I used 3 Girl Jam ribbon in the colors, Harvest Orange, Sunflower and Goblin Green. The rest of the details and products I used are over on my blog http://littlescrapsoflucy.blogspot.com.
Here's a close-up:
I LOVE the ribbon banner and how you placed the ribbon under that sunflower. So gorgeous. Thank you, Lucy, so much for designing for 3 Girl JAM today!
