So, usually the crew over at SplitCoast Stampers hosts the Hope You Can Cling To event in October. This year, they’ve changed it up a bit on us and are hosting the Falliday Fest. Falliday Fest is 30 challenges and 10 tutorials over two weeks. So far, the challenges have been alot of fun. I hope I’ll be able to finish everything. Yesterday, I posted my first Falliday Fest card, my project for the new challenge at The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog and today I have two more for you. It’s a slow start, but it’s a start.
The very first challenge that was posted was to use the colors of fall and some sort of “print” or text element. I had my watercoloring out for another project (see below), so thought I’d watercolor this one too. I clear embossed my French Script background stamp and then applied fall colors over it. The stamp I chose is from Taylored Expressions.
And, the next challenge I got done was to use a die as a mask on a watercolored background. This challenge made me discover that I don’t have very many dies that aren’t basic shapes. In the end, I chose to use these flower dies from Stamping Up. Once dried, I added this Riley & Company “One Kind Word” sentiment and then added an embossed frame. Love how this one turned out.
3 cards down, 27 to go. I can do it! You’ve been on this journey with me for the past couple of years, glad to have you again!
