sticky - this will remain on top until December 9th
I have picked a day between November 18th and December 9th. The day that I have picked I will have random.org pick a number out of the comments left and that person will win the blog candy I am giving away to celebrate reaching 20,000 hits. The thing you don't know is which day between now and then that I've picked, so it's best to come by every day and leave a comment. (if you are joining in late you need to go back to November 18th to start leaving comments)
If you have a blog let your readers know about my blog candy too! Wanna see what the blog candy is?
I've already added more to this than shows in the picture including a few of the images from Squigglefly!
Okay, I finally made a card for the Whiff of Joy design team call. We have to follow a card sketch Katharina put up. We can enter as many cards as we want, so I may make another one with the other stamp, but here's my first!
I used one of the images I received as a prize from Katharina. I stamped the image on acetate and then covered the back with sticky by running it through my xyron. Then I placed a crumpled piece of tissue paper over it. I colored the image from the back side directly on the tissue paper, but if it didn't look dark enough I added color with my copic marker on the front side directly on the acetate. I rubbed some blue chalk over the sky portion which really helps emphasize the wrinkles in the tissue. Then I added some falling snowflakes with liquid applique and a snow bank for the snowman to sit on. After it dried I heated it up carefully (very carefully because of the acetate) with the heat gun to puff it up.
The little snowflakes on the bottom of the card and the one at the top by the greeting are punched out of a really thin piece of styrofoam that I put some stickles on! The greeting was printed out on the computer in a font called Vaguely Repulsive. Odd name for a font isn't it?
here's a close up of the card so you can see the texture from the tissue paper and the dimension the liquid applique gives the snowfall. Click on the image for a better look!
If any of you are you are interested in getting on her design team you can see the details here. Good luck and wish me luck too! LOL! Thanks for stopping by today!
