LSC185, CCEE Challenge and Sketch Challenge

Happy TGIF!!! Hope you had a great week???

I thought I'd add my LSC185 card to the other two cards down below....

Since we are only allowed to use Stamps, Ink and Paper - I chose to use this brand new image from *Innovative Stamp Creations* called *Walk in the Woods*. It reminded me of my childhood years in Germany roaming the gorgeous woods in our area!!!

I focused on the colors and stamped this image on a Glossy CS. Then starting sponging using thes colors -Chocolate Chip, River Rock, Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango and Soft Sky.

The sentiment is also from an ISC Set called *Textures and Backgrounds* and I've inked it in Chocolate Chip. ~TFL

Have you all seen the *Innovative Stamp Creations* Sketch Challenge #12??? I thought I'd play along........can't resist the fabulous goodies Betsy Griffin is giving away!!!Hope you'll find time to play too???

For my card I have used two different ISC Stamp Set's - Marvels of Nature II and About Me.

Of course I had to use Tangerine Tango again and this time I've added Chocolate Chip - don't you think they look great together???

The *medium* Brads are from Making Memories Value Pack (Michaels).

Check out the next card I made!!!

My second card is for - the fabulous CCEE ladies who are challenging everyone to try the *Crayon Resist* technique and believe it or not I've been a stamper for over 3 yrs now and I have not tried it until last night.....I'm so flippin' happy, because I totally love it and the outcome is so pretty!!! Thank you CCEE ladies for inspiring me!!!

For this card I used the new *Upsy Daisy* Set. The colors are Whisper White, Glossy CS, Baja Breeze and Basic Black. The long panel was embossed with the *Dotted* CB folder.

Hope you like it???

Have a great weekend ~TFL~!!!

Your take on the ISCC12 sketch was fantastic. I printed it out and hope to give it a try.

Hah! I have never tried crayon resist either. I bought the glossy paper to do so almost a year ago! very pretty. Great job.
