New England Stamper: Lucky Me & the Color Challenge

May 26, 2010

Lucky Me & the Color Challenge

I couldn't believe my luck the other day when I won Lynn Steven's blog candy. When it arrived in the mail, I just about fell over in surprise. It was all so beautifully packaged, it seemed a shame to open it. But I did and everything inside the box was exquisite. As many of you know, Lynn is such a generous and sweet person - thanks Lynn!

I'll be offering some of my own blog candy soon and will include some of Lynn's as a way of paying it forward. Keep a look out.....

I hosted the Color Challenge on Gingersnaps today. This month's colors are burgundy, ivory and black. Here's the card I made for it.

To create the pink, speckled background, I used a technique called Spritzed Stone (TJ newsletter Dec 09/Jan 10). It involves scribbling Copic markers on acetate, spritzing them with alcohol and pressing a piece of c/stock onto it. Unfortunately, I didn't have the right strength alcohol, so I used the liquid refill for the Copic blender pen instead. I think it turned out pretty much the same, but when I buy the alcohol I'll compare the results.

Here's a look - the woman at the top looks like she has measles (LOL)!

Head over to Gingersnap Creations to see the awesome work created by the rest of the Design Team.

Happy Stamping!
