ADDED MONDAY 21ST: SUPER EXCITED!!! I JUST POPPED BY THE ‘JUST US GIRLS’ CHALLENGE BLOG TO DISCOVER THAT I HAD BEEN CHOSEN AS THE ‘CHIC OF THE WEEK‘ FOR THIS CARD! WOO HOO! WHAT A LOVELY SURPRISE … THANKS SO MUCH LISA! 😀
I hope you are having a great day. 😀 Remember yesterday when I asked what would win … “Work or Stamps”??? Well … I am happy to say … STAMPS WON!!! My desk was messy with craft stuff anyway … so I thought I may as well take the opportunity to do another card. After finding a great technique challenge over at HSS for yesterday’s card … I was tickled to find another at JUGS (Just Us Girls) challenge blog. I thought I would team this challenge with a sketch … and found the perfect one over at “The Sweetest Thing“. I had heaps of fun putting these together!
The “Ghosting” on the main image was the new technique for the JUGS challenge. This is basically the same as “Emboss Resist” … except you don’t emboss! Want to know more??? Here is a link to a tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers. I have to confess that this is actually my 4TH attempt at this card! The first time … I didn’t read carefully enough and used normal white card instead of GLOSSY WHITE. Believe me … you do need Glossy White for this technique to work. Another HINT: Don’t press your stamp “hard” onto the glossy card because it will slip. Place it really lightly & carefully onto the card and then press harder without sliding it. Yes … I tried 3 times before my images didn’t slip! 😉
I hope you enjoyed the two new techniques I have shared over the last couple of days! It has been so much fun to do some challenges … after being so snowed over the last few weeks. Yayaya! C U all soon! 😀
