Mojo Monday w/New Technique
Joan has a fabulous new technique challenge on SCS to stamp with water. I wanted to experiment a bit, so I stamped with my alcohol/Shimmerz mixture and it gives such a lovely subtle sheen to the snowflakes! I first sponged 3 different distress inks on white CS: Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, & Tea Dye. I then stamped the 3 different snowflake images (new from Verve) by spraying the stamp with alcohol/Shimmerz mixture. I heat set it, then stamped a few more snowflakes using Pink Passion (I miss this hot pink in the SU palette!) & Old Olive. It's difficult to capture the beauty of the BG on camera, but it really does make a unique BG! The layout is another great one by Julee Tilman for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This card also qualifies for the pink/green color challenge on the Cupcakes Creations blog - my first time playing with them. Thanks to Pattie Goldman for letting me know about the challenge! I can't believe my w/e is over already and it's back to work this afternoon. I'm off to run some errands...have a grand day!
