Good Morning! Good Morning!
How was your weekend?? Mine was slamming busy! I was churning out cards like no bodies business because there are LOTS of exciting things happening this week in the stamping world and I have another busy week at work, so I had to make as many as I could this past weekend. Hang onto your seat; this week is going to be jamming!!
First off, I want to apologize for forgetting to tell everyone about it the TSG release party that happened last Saturday. Because of all the events on my calendar this week, I've been so frazzled trying to keep them straight in my head. I promise you that once this week is done, I'll be back to my normal self and be more organized by the time the TSG release week comes around.
Ok, so every Monday There She Goes puts out a challenge for everyone to play along with. This week's challenge (TSG22) is to create a card or project using the cracked glass technique. It's a fun and easy technique that gives you awesome results!
I used the witch from the Spooktacular Silhouettes set that was released this past Saturday night. I stamped her on some Strathmore Bristol Vellum with StazOn, then sponged around her with Antique Linen, Frayed Burlap, Walnut Stain and Black Soot Distress Inks. Then I applied about 5 layers of clear embossing powder over the top of the image and threw it in the freezer to set. This is the fun part! Brought it out after about a half hour and started bending the piece to create the cracks. It's really cool to hear it cracking! Then I rubbed Walnut Stain all over it so it got into the cracks to give it that really distressed look.
The rest of the card came together pretty easily. I used this week's Sketch For You To Try and rotated it onto it's side. The sentiment is from one of the other sets released this past weekend, Home Sweet Home Halloween Additions. The paper is from Making Memories Spooky Alley Collection.
Wanna win a $5 gift certificate to There She Goes?? Just create a card for this challenge and leave your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of the challenge post. If you don't have a blog, just upload it to SCS and use the keyword TSG22. The challenge is open until the winner is announced next Monday, Oct. 5th.
