Hello Everyone!!! Welcome to my little corner of the world today!!! IN Wisconsin, did you hear? We are getting smoke all the way from Minnesota which is a couple hundred miles away! So that has totally changed my plans for the day. I am going with it though and planning to STAMP!!!
Anyways, today is Belli Challenge and DRS DESIGNS day!!! This week's Belli Challenge is to create a card using Challenge #126 (STRING)! The spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!
DRS Designs is also sponsoring the PLAY DATE CAFE Challenge this week! This week's inspiration is the picture collage listed below...
Aren't these images so FUN!?! This is the brand new release from DRS Designs! You can see the entire release HERE. You will enjoy perusing the website for the new fun, fall images!
I used the Technique Junkie Newsletter and the technique called Marbled Smooch from the October/ November 2010 Issue. After I dried the background using that technique, I spritzed it again with Smooch Spritz in the Splash Color. Once I finished that, I embossed with Gold Embossing powder the INTERLOCKING STAR BACKGROUND - SKU819H in a diagonal across the cardstock. Believe it or not - this background piece started out as a white sheet of cardstock! Once that was heated through, I watercolored the Stars with a Mustard Watercolor.
Once that portion was done, I stamped the Silhouette Cat and Moon SKU 895F with Memento Black Ink and colored it with Copic Markers YR24 and YR20. I used my handy dandy scissors and cut the image out. Once that was done, I masked the moon and spritzed with Smooch Spritz in Black Velvet. I stamped the Spooktacular Halloween Greeting SKU933F on the Elegant Ovals Spellbinders dies. and sponged the layer with navy and mustard ink.
A few more details:
