Hi stampers! It's Tuesday again and you know what that means! I fun new challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments! This week is a technique challenge and I have to say I wasn't thrilled when I first saw it.....
Why? Well because we don't have kids yet so I didn't have any crayons around the house and I kept forgetting to pick any up-) BUUUUUT after a quick trip to Walgreens I came home and got to work and ohmygosh is this fun and looks so cool! I may or may not have had to try it out with ALL my embossing folders once I got going, ha! Seriously it's so fun! And that's why I love these challenges! They push me out of my comfort zone and make me try things I wouldn't normally do! And now I have a box of crayons (minus the white one...which no one really uses anyway) for if the soon-to-be niece and nephew come over!
You can find a great tutorial HERE if you aren't familiar with it. Now, while I made a bunch of backgrounds, I chose to do my card with the one I had the original idea for since I need to get a move on the Halloween cards! As a side note the woodgrain embossing folder looks wicked awesome like this!
Stamps: Googly ghouls, spooky bingo bits
Paper: Whisper white, basic black, rich razzleberry
Ink: Basic black, rich razzleberry, tangerine tango, versamark
Accessories: Circle and scalloped circle punches, basic black polka dot ribbon, spider web embossing folder, googly eyes, crayon, stampin' spritzer, brayer, black embossing powder
Eeek, isn't it cute?:-) These are seriously some of the most cool backgrounds I've ever made! One detail you may not be able to see is that I embossed the spider. He's shiny and cool!
Now head on over and see what the rest of the DT came up with! And don't forget to play along!
