Best Buds



Well, I've kicked it up a notch from 3 to 4 challenges. I'm on a roll today because I like this card also, so much fun when what you're creating comes out pleasing to the eye. At Stamptacular Sunday Challenges the challenge is Friendship and we are to create our background paper with a favorite technique, so I got out my baby wipes, dye re-inkers, and very vanilla card stock, squeezed the re-inkers onto the baby wipes in the order you like, then swipe them across your card stock in swirls, spots, up and down or across, whatever makes you happy. Most times you do this technique on glossy card stock and it drys pretty quick, but all I had was white and so I thought why not experiment on the very vanilla card stock, so when I got through swiping I had to heat it with my heat gun to dry it out. That's the paper behind Best Buds, the butterflys, and the scallop background. The rest of the challenges are pretty self explanatory and I always put the links to the web sites so any one who visits here can hop over and see all the talented ladies and there are some gentlemen out there too who make cards, altered art, and scrapbook.
4 Challenges:
Supplies: Ivory Card Blank 5 1/2" X 4" Halcraft, papers: Stampin Up-Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Ink: Stampin Up-Soft Suede, Dye Re-inkers: Stampin Up-Crushed Curry, CTMH-Parchment, Sunkiss Yellow, Stamp: Provo Craft Simply Chic Stamps, EK Success punch-scallop diamond, ribbon-Hobby Lobby, mini yellow flower brad, rhinestone stickers, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
