This was done for Patricia's Hope you can cling to challenge seen here. ( use random splatters of ink) I had run the gingham through an landscape style embossing folder with sheet music on it and inked the impression with some vintage photo but, the white ink splatters did not show up when dry, so I grabbed this yellow one thinking it would show up and it splurted out everywhere ( and was too many splatters) but, such is life. things don't go the way we plan for them to even when you have a friend to carry the bat. This one is A-7 in real life and the sentiment is from Riley & Co.
This was done for Julie's hope you can cling to challenge seen here. ( make a smooshed background) This background was done with some watercolor paper and dylusions ink & water when it was dry it was die cut with the Tim holtz sizzix trellis die and I scrambled the pieces. I used the negative parts to line these up like a stencil with removable adhesive and left a space to put the sentiment on. I'm sure anyone undergoing treatment would be able to park this on their mantle or somewhere else in their home for a laugh when company drops in. this one is 5 1/2" square in real life.
This was done for Barbara's hope you can cling to challenge seen here. ( use spreadable paste) the leaves are an brass stencil that had some plaid dimensional paint ( it has a gritty texture just like embossing paste actually) through the hole of the stencil then had gold glitter sprinkled on while wet. this one is A-6 in real life.
These are 3" square in real life and done totally from scraps on the table for Gail's challenge for hope you can cling to seen here. (keeping connected) I was thinking that you know I may do a few more with this theme as the month goes a long using a different stamp. There are 12 of them in this photo. the sentiment/image is an itty bitty from Unity stamps and is done in Versafine onyx black. these were diecut with a classic square die. the insides are not lined so, I did not use any really dark colors of cardstocks for the bases.
This was done for Edna's hope you can cling to challenge seen here ( feature the binding of the card) these shipping tags were run through the embossing folder before they were drug through the stain/water on the craft sheet. This sentiment is from that new SU set called perfect pennants and it us up on pop dots.
This card is A-6 in real life, and I don't know anymore the name of that sheer ribbon. but, its one of those get it cut by the yard ones from scrap stores. something creative is all I remember.
This was done for Paula's hope you can cling to challenge seen here. ( use no stamps) This is and piece of watercolor paper that was dyed/dripped with some different dylusions sprays. ( the color changes were after each previous color had dried so, I didn't end up with mud.) The reddish dots were done with the corner of an krylon paint pen ( red shimmer) after the dried background had been run through the embossing folder for this texture. the scrabble tiles are authentic game pieces and that ribbon is the new linen one from SU. the base is GKD cranberry. this one is A-7 in real life.
This was done for Natalie's hope you can cling to challenge seen here. ( add something soft) Those leaves are diecut ( came that way) felt and the lace is extremely soft to touch. the printed paper is from bo bunny and MME. the sentiment is from Stampabilities. this one is 5 1/2" square in real life.
