A Couple of Challenges

Finally, I got to play in some challenges!  [Busy, busy.]  I love playing in the Hero Arts Challenge - Having a reason to use their stamps makes me happy :).  For this challenge, I used one of the sketches they had:

I used the bottom left sketch

Maybe a loose version, but hopefully it works.  I used the Crayon Resist Technique.  [Emboss a piece of cardstock.  Run a crayon over the "embossed" portion.  Sponge on ink, I used Tim Holtz distress Evergreen Bough and Broken China.  Wipe off embossed portion with a paper towel to remove the sponging off of the crayon resist.]  Kind of a cool effect, makes it look almost like metal.  I used my go-to Hero Arts fun stamps Holiday Cheer and Holiday Sayings.

I also made the following card for last week's One Layer Wednesday challenge - masking. [ I did get my card submitted.  I just had to use my SCS gallery for linking.]  However, I wanted to show all of you too  :)

I really didn't plan on using the same color scheme, but I haven't had my turquoise fix and now, I feel better :).  I used the Gina K Designs Wild Flowers for this card, and I made an acetate template for the bottom masking.

Thanks for stopping by~
