I'm on Iron Craft Season 2!! (video interview!!)

Hi there!!

Today I have something extra special for you!

Chaitali Narla from Cuts, Crops & Creativity invited me to join her amazing Iron Craft Season 2 series. Each episode features a crafter and some goodies. Both, Chaitali and the crafter, play with the same supplies to create a card. And there's a video interview!!
I was super excited reading her email until I read "video interview" lol then I sent her an email explaining that I'm Spanish and that it would be a disaster because even when I read and write English everyday... I never practice my spoken English!
Well, she encouraged me and I was "brave" enough to do it. Just a moment before the interview started I was thinking about running away, I was soooo nevous!!
I hope you enjoy the interview and I hope I can at least brigthen your day a little when you see me trying to speak :)

Here's my card, we both used Critters Ever After from Lawn Fawn

I created the background blending soft pink and orange distress inks, more distress inks for the grass and then I stamped and colored the images with Copics and fussy cut them.

Finally, I added subtle shimmer here and there with my Wink of Stella clear pen (a gift from my sweet bf!).

I had a lot of fun making the card, the interview and I laughted a lot seeing the video. And the most important, I've met a great, sweet and fun new friend, thanks Chaitali :)

It was such a treat to finally see & hear you. I hope this will be the beginning of many more videos from you.

I thought your interview went very well your spoken English is a lot better than you think. It sounds like you have so many interest in addition to paper crafting but really they are all related to being a creative person. You are very sweet and your card is MAGICAL I love the soft colors and how you made your scene look so beautiful! I hope to see you interviewed again some time and now I will be following your blog muchas gracias. ;)

Thank you for sharing this interview video. It was so nice; I feel like I've 'met' you now! I love your work with Lawn Fawn and was wondering if you'd share which distress inks you used for your sunset. It was gorgeous! Happy Crafting!

Thank you so so much for all your comments! You really made me smile!

Johanna, the distress inks for the sunset are Squeezed Lemonade and Spun Sugar, then added a bit of Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold on the edges.

And the name of the kitty is Java :) Thank you so much for asking!!
