Today's HYCCT challenge is to do a resist technique. I chose Crayon Resist.
I love how this Darcie folder turned out...can't you just see that little boy building his snowman in the storm!!!
I love the SNS silhouettes!
Lois and I have been on a couple design teams together and presently serve together on the CCEE challenge team. We also met in person at a stamp retreat in Florida (MFP). She is a daily challenge chaser, comments on cards and is just a truly lovely lady and a good friend.
Since I'm working on Christmas cards (have about 30 now), I chose this pretty card to case. I changed the theme, image and papers. Thanks for the inspiration, Lois!
Congrats, Lois...about time they recognized you and your talents! Enjoy your reign! Hugz!

My leaves and verse are digitals...the verse is from TLC Creations; the leaves ??? I used the Spellbinder die "Radiant Rectangles" and a Cuttlebug folder.

|Barbara's challenge is to use an embossing plate and spread it around.|
I must admit this is my second time to use embossing paste...just bought it a couple weeks ago to try (thanks for the push, Barbara!). My first attempt is now in the wastepaper basket!
I used a Crafter's Workshop tree stencil. While the paste was still wet, I sprinkled blue glitter all over the card..yep, took awhile to dry! I love the effect of the glitter on the paste..looks like a starry sky!
Then, I cut some Spellbinder snowflakes and embellished them and I was done.
Pretty messy technique, but so worth it!
The CAS challenge is to use pink and orange. I did the ink smoosh.

The IC challenge is to use the website Vietri for inspiration. I chose this plate for it's multi colors.
I chose this Copic Coloring Page digital with the little gal holding her cell phone and used a free TLC Creates digital paper with telephones for my background. Think I got the telephone connection and the girlfriends!

|Today's HYCCT challenge is to use no stamps. I chose dies.|
I watercolored my background, added Snow-Tex and glitter and used my Kemper Tool to "splatter" white acrylic. I've had this tool forever and never used it (other than to use it to get the small pieces out of my dies). The other day, Lydia posted a video on Facebook showing how to use it. Bingo...light bulb moment! Thanks, Lydia. However, next time, I shall somehow "tent" my card as my desk, ink pads, blocks, etc are all covered with "snow splatters"!! Live and learn!
Have a great day.
I chose Frankenstein. He's telling ya to chill out! Colored with Copics. Sentiment cut on Cricut.
Have a great day!
