TTTC05 - Emerging Color Technique

Getting this one in as the last minute!  The challenge at The Technique Twist is emerging color.  I have done this once before so this one is not totally new to me as the other challenges have been.

My twist is that I used strips of different colors for the base of my design.  I used tangerine tango, pumpkin pie and daffodil delight and stamped En Francais with early espresso onto the strips.  Then I stamped Sunflower with Versamark and clear embossing powder.  After heat setting my sunflower image I brayered early espresso over the top of the whole layer.  Then I gently wiped over the embossed image with a tissue and out popped my sunflower with the French text.  I just added some retired ribbon and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

The sketch at MDS Monday worked really great for this cute pic of my granddaughter.  She is starting to stand alone for a few seconds at a time.  She and her daddy went downtown to have lunch with Mommy and some playtime in the park.  Looks like she had a lot of fun with these blocks.

Thanks for stopping by!

I think my granddaughter played a little too hard before breakfast this morning.  My son-in-law sent these pics to me and I couldn't resist using them for the sketch from MDS Monday.

Thanks for stopping by!

The sketch comes from MDS Monday.  We were also challenged to alter a punch.  I changed the shape of the butterfly punch.  My photo is of my granddaughter that was taken back in March.  She has changed so much!

The Technique Twist Challenge 04

I tried another new technique thanks to The Technique Twist challenge for this week.  Faux Waxed Seal uses embossing powder that is melted then stamped.  My card is very simple.  And, as you can see from the photo below, this technique does tend to warp your cardstock.   But it was fun to learn a new technique.  Thanks for the challenge, ladies.

MDS Monday gave us this sketch and we have to use a number on it.  My pics are of my 7 month old granddaughter.  I decided to use more sevens as my embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by!
