fun, fun challenge, Julia and I have to tell you the examples are on the edge fantastic! Love this one and I'm gonna tell you why...
I've been patiently waiting to create another chandelier card (I've got a friendly competition going with my girlybud, Craf-tee). Last night I was working on 'A' chandelier, carefully fussy cutting...placed it on this awesome floral 'wallpaper' paper you see here, photographed it and wouldn't you know you could SEE the adhesive lines underneath..they looked like a NEON sign...that would never do! So I pulled the chandelier carefully off the paper...tearing the paper in several places...not to happy about that (until I read the challenge this morning)! I restamped the image (B LINE Designs) on a cream vellum with Archival jet black also stickled the bulbs. Let it dry till this morning FUSSY cut again...made my tears a bit bigger (stamped one of the images from Timeworn Trim in the rip---how appropriate is that? And there you have it! My sentiment is Diva Impressions inked in VersColor black and embossed in clear. German foil scrap silver.
Okay my chandelier lovin' friend...bring it on!!! Thanks for having a look!

Oh wow, Susan! I sure wouldn't want to get in a chandelier challenge with you! This is stunningly elegant! I love the background wallpaper with the tear and the image viewed through it! The sparkling lightbulbs just shine! Awesome card!
