Hi there. I'm so glad you stopped by!
It's been a fun four years!
Thank you Darnell.
Darnell has also decided to add a couple of prizes for winners of a random draw.
(Be sure to have two different designs to be eligible. Explanation is at the challenge site.
I've used a NBUS Lavinia stamp for both of my cards.
I did an alcohol ink background on Yupo, squeezed some alcohol lift solution on top,
and brayered it over the whole piece. Then I laid a piece of cardstock on top and
pressed it down. When I lifted I had a beautiful print background that was a bit
darker than I wanted.
So I squirted some more alcohol life on the Yupo, brayered and pulled another piece.
(I found that this technique works well with alcohol ink backgrounds in my stash too.)
I used some VersaFine Clair ink to stamp flowers and VersaFine Onyx Black
for Mooch (the cat) and the little butterfly. The ground was sponged with more
For my Twofer....
Halloween is coming all too soon.
This time I used a background piece from my stash that was done with
paper towel transfer in a nice orange and yellow.
I sponged some Hickory Smoke around the edge and followed with
Black Soot on the outer edges.
Mooch was stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black and so were the trees that
were a birthday gift from a sweet friend.
I had added a circle mask before I sponged to place a moon on the design
and used a NBUS flying witch die cut to the moon for Mooch to gaze at.
A piece of alcohol ink from my stash worked great for a thin frame and
die cut Beware.
You have until the 24th to join in our last challenge.
I sure hope to see your Twofer cards in the gallery!
