Falliday again : )

 I am back at creating for Falliday again today (and yesterday). I had fun trying some new techniques too.


The dendritic technique is similar to a TJ technique, but I did it between pieces of a CD case. I added some Iridescent medium to the purple paint so it has shimmer to it too. Images by Paper Smooches.

 This card used yarn wrapped around a block and dipped into white paint.  The challenge is names, "It's a Blizzard". Therefore, I wanted to make a snow scene.  I opened a SU die drawer for another die, and shamefully, found this set of dies I did not even remember I had....so, I opened it and put it to use.  The glitter is Sparkle and Sprinkle. The sentiment is also SU and is embossed in Silver EP.

 This card is using a technique where you use water to make your stamping run.  I ended up re-coloring the image with markers and re-stamping, as the image had too much detail to leave as it was.  I added edging with a glitter pen. The sentiment is SU.

And, finally (for today)
 I have never tried this technique before- you ink up your stamping block and use it to make an impression on your cardstock.  The challenge, Ceal, is the queen of CAS so I challenged myself to make a CAS card.  Images by Lawn Fawn.

Challenges TBA

Thanks for stopping by!

You have been busy Shelly, and these are fabulous cards - I love putting Iridescent medium on my cards - I have one to blog that I made in the weekend, but cannot blog about yet... Your technique on the top card looks amazing I am going to have to look it up and find out how to do it.
Blessings
