Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #12 - Splat!!

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! We had our first big snowstorm of the winter on Monday. I was so hoping to make it to spring without a big storm but no such luck :( It's time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land!! The theme this week is Splat - we want to see your projects using inks, spray mists, paint...along with a brand of die that Scrapy Land carries (there are over 40 brands to choose from!!).


For my cards, I used several different mediums. The background watercolor paper was spritzed with Dylusions sprays in Postbox Red and Cherry Pie.


For this card, I used a Die-Versions Brick Background die to make a stencil. I then applied Wendy Vecchi Crackled Texture Paste through the stencil. The next layer of watercolor paper was colored with TH Distress Stain in Fired Brick and Barn Door. Fired Brick Distress Ink was then applied through a TH Heart stencil. I used a TH Distress Marker Spritzer Tool to spritz some Fired Brick Distress marker.



A Spellbinders Classic Heart die was inked with Fired Brick Distress Ink and then covered with more Crackled Texture Paste. The edges were inked with Fired Brick and Walnut Distress Ink. Once the cracks appeared, more Walnut ink was applied to highlight the cracks. The banner is a LaLa Land Stitched Elements die. Love is a Die-Versions Complements Everyday die.


For this one, I used a TCW Brick stencil so the cracks really show. The button on the ribbon is a Die-Versions Wee Petite Button die.



I used Die-Versions Heart Doodles dies to decorate the inside. I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Texture
2. DL.Art - February Linky
3. Little Scrap Pieces - Show it Off Saturday
4. Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday - Valentine's Day


Now it's your turn!! Head on over to Scrapy Land to see the amazing projects my design team sisters have created for today's challenge!! Then link up your Splat project using a brand of dies that Scrapy Land carries...I can't wait to see what you create :)

Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser.
So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun,
explore and make a lot of memories.

Can I simply say what a aid to find someone who really knows what theyre speaking about on the internet. You definitely know the best way to convey a difficulty to gentle and make it important. Extra folks have to read this and understand this facet of the story. I cant imagine youre not more standard since you definitely have the gift. casino online
