STUDIO G CHALLENGE – current sketch challenge ends on sunday morning so come join in!!!
Today’s project covers TWO challenges AND a new technique video from over on stamp TV that Gina K put up recently! the technique is really neat though subtle so it was hard to get a photo that did it justice. you start with a piece of alcoho ink polished stone paper – basic alcohol ink application. use ranger glossy paper and 2-3 colors of alcohol ink with a metallic mixative, dab randomly over paper, add blending solution to your felt piece and dab again.
Next take a stamp that you would normally color in, stamp onto your polished stone using versamark, emboss with black. finally color in all or part of your image carefully with bleach – some colors bleach out and others don’t so you get a very interesting effect.
The OCC Challenge is to use border punches – how easy is that?? and the CAS19 challenge was a sketch.
and now the project:
So far the set includes a card, tea bag folder, gift tag, cough drops and a soothing vapor plug in. i also ordered some eucalyptus handmade bath items that are just gorgeous from RachelRene on etsy and will add those when they arrive. I URGE you to go check out this shop as she has some GREAT stuff! Be sure and tell her i sent you over! BTW etsy is THE greatest place to shop i swear! if you don’t shop there regularly you really should!
I am trying to get some gift sets together to keep on hand too – would be SO much easier – i have been perusing etsy and picking up things i see here and there and everything is just SO top notch! i am hoping by the time the holiday season rolls around i will have NOTHING i need to do!
what are your favorite gift set ideas or items?? i would REALLY love to hear some thoughts and ideas for all occasions!!
