Good morning! Thank you for joing us for another amazing challenge at Stampin Sisters in Christ! I'm so delighted that you've chosen to stop by my blog today! Hope you enjoy!
Amazing Hostess: The Lovely Candace
Scripture: Psalm 118:6 "The Lor is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do to me?"
Challenge: Do something on your card that you're "afraid" of! For example, CAS style, stitching, a vintage look, etc. Just do something you wouldn't normally do!
Wow, talk about challenging! ;) This challenge is one to really get you out of your comfort zone, maybe try something you've wanted to, but haven't been willing to risk yet. For me, this challenge meant making a more "decorated" card and making my own flowers. I LOVE shabby chic flowers and I'm "cheap" so I don't like to spend the money for them! lol So....I made my own! I found an amazingly easy tutorial here to make them. I had a great time doing this! There are a few things I might do differently next time, but I'm for sure making these again! I was so nervous about making them, but I think they turned out ok. I also used the "dot" technique to make shading around my image and sentiments with one of my copic markers. I used a nestabilities that I loved and purchased, but haven't used it because I couldn't quite seem to get it to work right on anything. One more thing....I didn't use one single drop of stickles!!! This is insane for me! I usually have everything so glittered up, but this time I wanted it different. Hope you enjoy my card and be sure to join our challenge this week! Don't be afraid!
Have a blessed week! ~H
