Challenge


A few days ago Mom put a challenge on her blog to use some of the things that you haven't used in a while. I had a few minutes this evening to play so I thought I would use my metallic pencils and hodgepodge hardware.

I used the metallic pencils to do resist on the glossy cardstock and then used sponge daubers to apply the ink. The floral background was stamped on Rose Red in the same color. The other 2 colors are Garden Green and So Saffron.

So, I am now putting the challenge out to you (if you didn't read it on Mom's blog). Try using something that you haven't used in a while (or ever!) and see what you come up with. I am really happy I took the time to do it. Thanks for the challenge Mom.

Love the card. You used twill tape. I used to use it a fair bit but haven't for awhile. Thanks for sharing.

It does look like twill tape in the pic but it is apricot ribbon. I haven't used twill tape in a while either so thanks for the idea.
