CYS In the Air

 I have joined a group on Splitcoast where we are Challenged to 'Use our Stash'. Additionally, each month we have a theme- this month is 'In the Air'. Such a challenge gets you looking in your stash for some ideas- I had a hard time making a decision, so made 2 cards again this month......


 I bought this stamp set from Hero Arts at CHA in 2008..... and am so happy to finally use it!  The background was inspired by a Unity technique video : )  I used Distress inks, Versamark and Silver EP. I just love the way this turned out : )

 As long as I had the Distress Inks out, I inked up another piece of cardstock using many ink colors and stencils. I have Elizabeth Crafts Designs stickers that are used with Glitter Ritz and colored (over the Glitter Ritz) with Copics.



 Challenges:
Oh la la- Embossing
Alphabet Challenge- Y is your choice
4 Crafty Chicks- Stencils

Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly
