That is a 60's song, and how do I know it? My sisters were teenagers in the 60's and played lots of music! I was a weeee one but apparently music knows no age boundaries because I remember a lot of them. Here is what I came up with this weekend. The first and second cards are for VSN - a weekend of hourly card making challenges on Splitcoast. It is so much fun! You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge. Not an easy task but somehow it works.
The first one's challenge was to use texture. So I used magic mesh, hemp, dry embossing (Cuttlebug), clear embossing powder (to make the image real smooth) and I also roughed up the edges to give it a textured look.
The second one was so cool! You were to use a leaf and ink it up and stamp with it. I went outside and grabbed a maple leaf, used one of my multicolor ink pads and after I stamped the leaf (you can even see the veins of the leaf) I clear embossed it and cut it out.
The last one I did for the technique challenge of blending color pencils with Gamsol. I had odorless oil paint thinner but it still worked great! I also went to my stamp store for it's 2 year anniversary celebration and made three fun make n' takes which I will post tomorrow. Until then, have a great day/night!
