Hi there friends it's that time again - the latest challenge at
Simon Says Stamp: Mosaic Ornaments inked with
Ranger Dye Inks then clear embossed to add some shine
Uniko Studio: Balloon Bash and sentiment from
Clearly Besotted: Christmas Sparkle
I'd like to skip over to Merry Monday Christmas Challenge
and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge with this card.
It's a 'red and white' theme at Merry Monday
and describe your favourite technique and product at SSS.
So whenever I can add water-colouring to a project
especially using Distress Inks and possibly stencilling would be
the most enjoyable and satisfying techniques for me to use.
I did find it quite tricky however to showcase stencils whilst keeping
to that all important CAS and white space for Less is More.
My Favourite Things: Rose Builder stencil with embossing paste
coloured with DIs in Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn
then a sprinkling of glamour dust to the leaves
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted: Say it in Style
For my last one I wanted to try out a technique showcased by the wonderful
Jennifer McGuire HERE. Again I think this would have looked better if I
could have filled the whole card front with the stencilled panel rather than
maintaining the area of 'white space' at the top.
Memory Box: Ornate Texture stencil
Inked with Hero Arts white pigment ink and Memento Bahama Blue
Clearly Besotted: It's Your Birthday sentiment on a
Nestabilities Scalloped Circle die with a circle of vellum behind,
some embroidery thread in silver then finished with gems and sequins.
Ok time to hand over to you crafty people and don't forget
to check out the rest of the DT over on the LIM blog
for more inspiration.
Thanks as always for calling by and I'll be back tomorrow
with the latest challenge details from AAA Cards.
