SPCC #37, SFYTT Feb 27


Boy oh boy it sure is LATE! I've been crazy busy lately and haven't been able to post very much last week. I was busy prepping for a workshop for my good friend Penny and it was SUPER fun. I'll post more on the FIVE projects we completed another day! Here's my attempt at this week's SPCC color challenge combined with February's last SFYTT! There's some GREAT blog candy to be won and you still have a few more days to participate in all four SFYTT. 

I attempted to do an emboss resist technique where I stamped the Pumpkin Pie card stock with Night of Navy with the Fine Flourish stamp. Then I stamped the damask (is that what it's called?) image from Friends 24-7 and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged Brilliant Blue all over the card stock and wiped off any ink that was on the embossed image. Now some may think that I cheated and used brown pastels on the tree branch but I actually mixed some Brilliant Blue and Pumpkin Pie together. Alright, it's super late and I need to catch some ZzzzZ's! Hopefully I can participate in this week's Stampin' Royalty challenge before the deadline is up! G'nite!
