I recently joined a two card swap and the theme was Christmas. I made a background of different hues of blue distress inks and then used some white texture paste on a snowflake stencil. Once that was dry, I used the same stencil and a damp baby wipe to create more subtle snowflakes.
I used a new die of a holly branch stretching across three windows and fixed it to the background layer. Then I just added some little red berries and some sequins and stamped a greeting.
Hi everyone. Part of my Kroger mission was to use this new spirit infused barbecue sauce. Kroger sent me a free jar of Private Selection Kentucky Bourbon craft barbecue sauce, several recipes, and some coupons to share. I chose to make some barbecue thighs in the oven. I know it would be much tastier grilling them, but my grill is out of commission at the moment. I have to say though that this sauce is out of this world delicious! I baked the chicken at 400° for 25 minutes and then I turned the oven to 425° and basted the thighs with the barbecue sauce and baked them for 7 minutes. Then I flipped the thighs and basted them again and baked for another 7 minutes. I continued basting and flipping every 7 minutes until the chicken was cooked through. This creates the wonderful charred bits that you get when grilling! I couldn't resist licking my fingers every time I flipped the thighs. This stuff is delicious, and I will use it on so many things.
I debossed some of the tulips from the back to give some dimension, but it's hard to see on the computer screen. I hope you will come look at the Outlawz and see what everyone else has done with this image, there are some really great creations.
