Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
What a week -end! I had so much fun making and posting cards on Splitcoast Stampers this week-end. I love being challenged and love seeing what the other participants come up with. There are sure a lot of creative card makers on Splitcoast Stampers, and I love that they share their creativity with the rest of us!
So here is the photo I promised of all the cards I made for the challenges:
And the bird one was sent before the group photo:
Love those Crazy Birds! I colored him with Copics,
die cut him, and layered him on the woods EF piece.
Such an easy card, and the sentiment is great.
This is one of my favorites, because of the "Northern Lights" technique I used.
1. I die cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
2. I sponged with five colors from lightest first to darkest.
yellow, turquoise, green, purple, navy
3. I stamped a silhouette stamp (SU! Serene Silhouettes) over all in black, and sponged the edges of the piece in black.
4. I dotted with a white gel pen!
To finished it off I die cut another piece of colored cardstock to back it and put it on a base that I had run through with (SU! Stars) EF. I put a sponged die cut sentiment on the card, too.
My directions for this card came from Melissa's Tutorial on SCS.
This was actually the card I made for my challenge which was to use a water technique and some gold.
I used the Vintage Water Color Tehnique, which I just love!
1. Stamp your image in distress inks.
2. Using an aqua painter and water color pencils, paint the
blend to fill in the image.
3. Oh, and make masks of your images, so you can mask
and stamp a bg script stamp over everything.
4. Do drops and splatters over all.
I finished it off with gold cord and a sentiment tag.
I have so much fun with this technique. You should try it.
Here is Heather tutorial on Splitcoast.
Next week, I will tell you about the technique for the
background piece under the image panel.
Now a photo of my desk. I thought I would show you all the goodies one of my Teapotters friends on Splitcoast Stampers sent me. It is called a tickle! I am so tickled and can't wait to use some of these die cuts.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate the time you take to let me know you were here, too! So glad our Julia posted this week! Wow! But we are still linking at LLJ's. So head over there to see more deskers this week! I am off to go over there myself. Have a great week!
