I'm trying my best to complete a challenge on Split Coast: "100 Cards in 100 Days", the objective is to use only materials that you have on hand, no new papers, embellishments, ribbon, etc. You can only replace adhesives if you run out. Well, I thought that this was a might ambitious for me, but really like the goal of using up some of my treasure trove!
Here is a card that I really like:
The beautiful butterfly is from an A Muse set called "Papillon". A very pretty set!
The embossing powder is a two-toned EP called Silver Moon by Moon Glow. I picked up a number of these EP's about 5 years ago at another stamp show.
The blue CS is a new favorite color for me: "Ocean", which is also the ink used for the embossing.
I've only made one of these cards so far, but anticipate making more, as they can be used for a variety of occasions.
Cards 33 & 34 are another attempt at the Chalkboard Technique. This time I used navy CS, stamped a background script and masked out the shape of the flower. Then using the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, lined up the flower and stamped with white pigment ink by Color Box. Then, using SU chalks and sponge daubers, colored the blossom and stem.
Here are the supplies used for these two cards:
Sometimes it's crazy how many companies and supplies can go into just one card design! Yep, my mind was wandering all over the place on these two.
But I am having fun with this chalkboard technique.
Maybe give it a try, you may like it too!
Thanks for stopping by. Now I think our blizzard has quit and it may be time to go get some pictures of that to share!
