Simply Challenged #2 - Spritz, Mist, Mask, Paint



Meet The Twins: Toil and Trouble! At least that's what I decided their names were when I found this fantastic dimensional sticker in my stash! And these girls were just begging to come out and play for a few wicked challenges anyway! First up is Simply Challenged #2 over at Simply Betty Stamps. They want to see you get messy and spritz, mist, mask, or paint. I opted for the spritzing with a little masking so my image wouldn't get spattered. I used two Stampin' Up markers (Basic Black and Baroque Burgundy) plus my spritz tool for the job. I also sponged the image panel with So Saffron ink. The sketch is courtesy of The Sketchy Challenges (#18). I rotated it a quarter turn so my lace was horizontal instead of vertical. And finally, I really wanted to join in over at Haunted Design House for their "Terrible Two" Macabre Monday challenge (HDH123)! I knew this image from Simply Betty Stamps' Steampunk line was perfect! A few black roses from I Am Roses and a couple Recollections black rhinestone bling flourishes complete my card. I was thrilled to use my French Pastry Cheery Lynn die for the first time! What a fabulous black doily it made, don't you think? And with their Cuttlehug spacer plate cutting and removal were a piece of cake! I highly recommend this line of dies! I did use one of my trusty Nesties too (Labels Fifteen).

Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, R81, R85, E17, E19, E23, E25, E27, E34, W4, W6, W8) and Prismacolor Art Markers (150, 151, 152).

It has been a pretty quiet week here so far. Crafting has taken a back seat to snuggle time with my small man, but I have to get serious and get down to business tonight so be sure to check back tomorrow for another new creation (with a brand new image just being previewed in a few hours!)! Thanks for stopping by!
