It's NUBUS Time!!

I'm happy to say that I'm joining Darnell's NUBUS Challenge #12 .  These are always such fun. I won't explain the challenge here.  If you've never participated before, click over and read all about it.  In essence, Darnell is encouraging us crafters to use what we buy.  I used two stamp sets that I've had several years.

I never had a pink princess phone.  But I sure thought it would be fun to have one when I was a teen.  Maybe some of you know what I mean - LOL!

I stamped the background and cut down the panel to fit an A2 card base.  After stamping and coloring the phone, I fussy cut it and popped it up on the card base.  I did the same with the sentiment. I added a shadow beneath the phone to ground the image. Three sequins finished it off.

Card stock:  Recollections 60 lb and 110 lb
Stamps:  Impression Obsession C-A-C Ticking (NBUS); Stamps of Life Phone 4 You (NBUS); Paper Smooches Shadows
Inks:  Memento Black and Close to My Heart Slate
Spectrum Noir Markers:  PP1, PP2, IG1
Sequins:  My stash
