Roller Coaster Tilda for LHOSM Challenge

Hello Sweet Readers,

It's been a "Blue Day" for me because of the passing of renown chef, Anthony Bourdain. I just adored him. My day has been a sad one. Despite the sadness, I did manage to get a card front done. I'll do the interior sometime when I get time. Today's card has been bouncing around in my head since I saw the Roller Coaster Tilda stamp. Then, my friend, Jane Johnson did an amazing pull card that used the Magnolia filmstrip die as roller coaster rails! Jane - that was brilliant! I quickly wrote to her and asked if she would give me permission to steal her idea, LOL. I would NEVER do that without asking first. Jane was lovely and said that she would love to see what I do with her concept. So, here it is:

Here are the deets:

I watercolored the background to represent an evening scene. The rhinestone stars are both clear and a very, very light purple. I used my Quickutz dies to cut the alphas for the title. "Happy Summer," was going to be my title, but then I thought that the title would be restrictive. "Oh happy day" would be more salable in my Etsy Shop, A Scrappers Boutique. I went over the alphas with some sparkly Wink of Stella. The filmstrip "rails" were cut from silver metallic card stock. The roller coaster is a die I've had but never used. I guess I was just waiting for the right stamp, and then it appeared! LOL I colored Tilda with Distress Inks. Oh, and I stitched the perimeter using silver metallic thread. The roller coaster cars were made sparkly using Crystal Stickles.

LHOSM is taking a summer break for the months of June and July. We will see you on August 19 when we begin our next round of challenges! Till then, have a happy summer!
