Greetings! This is a late night post for me as days are busy, but it is a happy one!
First off I must share I've joined the Let's Scrap DT - Woot!
This is super exciting as back in the day it was one of my very first teams and now to be back with them is a joy. There are oodles of changes as well. Gone are the days of the Ning site. While this is a bit sad, I think ultimately it is pretty cool the challenge site is now blog based - it makes it a lot easier for all of YOU to play along! There is also a Facebook page for anyone on that social network so be sure to check us out there too! This is where the chattiness happens. ;)
My first sketch reveal was with this team thos past Wednesday and here is what I came up with:
I've been working diligently on using my stash and I love this October Afternoon line with the Campbell Soup kid-like images so much. I couldn't resist using them on this card. The background here is a heat embossed resist using some of the new ScrapFX cloud stamps and NeoColors II, can you guess how much I love these stamps??! ahahaha!!
What I love about this technique is how it allowed the details of each stamp to still shine through. Here you can see the word happy much better than in the first picture. You'll also notice the little confetti speckles in the upper right hand cloud. The color seeped into these areas yet resisted the clouds - love that.
Here is the sketch I based my design off:
And now it's turn. Create a card, or LO if you choose, and link it up to the Let's Scrap site for your chance to win a prize from this week's sponsor. Hope to see you playing along! :)
Until next time, take care!!
