DT Spotlight: Carol Lepard

 Happy Wednesday!  I almost dropped the ball!  I forgot what day it was d'oh!  It's SPOTLIGHT DAY :D  And today I am happy to feature DT Carol Lepard :)  Tea Bag Folding is a technique we both love. And clever Carol is a wiz at making new folds!

******************************

















For this card, I have used an image by Fred She Said called Emma with Her Frills On - Digi . Emma is colored with both Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils as well as Prismacolor Pencils and Dry Blended. I used the regular pencils on Emma's face, hands and feet as I don't have a "skin tone" pencil I like in my Watercolor set.
Papers used are a purple textured metallic paper that I picked up at Walmart as well as a Purple Mirri Board, both have been cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities Large Labels die. The whole thing is mounted on Textured White Cardstock.
Martha Stewart Deep Edge Punch was used on the metallic purple cardstock and the Martha Stewart Lattice Punch was used on a bit of green cardstock for the "grass" under Emma's feet.




Here is a closer look at Emma. She has Bling flowers with Peel-off waste used to make a Bow and Ribbons for her bouquet. The lace on Emma's dress has also been "blinged" with Aleene's Tack-it Over and Over and Glamour Dust.

For those interested in Tea Bag Folding, the medallion on my card is done using the Variation of Carol's Crazy Zig-Zag Fold and a tile by my good friend Marie B. I have included the fold directions for those who would like to try their hand at folding....more of my Tea Bag directions to follow in future posts, so keep your eyes peeled. ;-) (just click on the directions to bring them up full screen.)

Carol this is fabulous. I must try this particular fold...as I have not done this one. I keep a box of medallions as I use them instead of bows on gifts. Thanks for sharing with us.

Bear Hugs,
