The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Stencil




For my card, I used the Tim Holtz Layered Scribbles Stencil.  I did a direct ink to stencil with pastel pink and green inks then spritzed the stencil with water and layed it onto watercolor paper and smooshed the stencil so the ink would transfer.  Heat set after removing the stencil; stamped the sentiment using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  Created a ruffled ribbon flower and layered May Arts leaves under the flower, added a faceted gem to the flower center and adhered the finished flower to the card.

We hope you'll share your stencil cards/projects with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - Favorite Technique


The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge theme is "Favorite Technique."

For my technique I chose to create a card using alcohol inks and Yupo Paper.  I applied the ink to the Yupo using a foam brush rather than using the AI blending tool and felt application.  Using the foam brush I had a bit more control for creating the diagonal pattern.  I adhered the stitched die cut inked Yupo to a crumb cake card base.  Used CheeryLynn Designs Sunflower to die cut the flower and CheeryLynn Designs Fanciful Flourish vine.  Embellished the vine wih a ladybug button.

We hope you'll share your favorite technique with us at The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge.

SCS Crafters of Faith Challenge...


Card created for the Crafters of Faith Challenge on SCS.

Details:
Scripture-Isaiah 40:31But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Challenge: Make a project that showcases strength that you have received from your faith. Or, something that you are not strong at, but are working to be better! It could be an image, a technique, style of card—anything you want to highlight.

For me, especially during the "stay at home" orders, I sometimes lose sight of the beautiy of the little things we have in life. That's an area I need to work on...I've not been out and about since mid-February!

For my card I used Digital Papers from We Are 3 Digital Shop:
