Scrap Our Stash May Sketch Challenge

I made this from my Frosted Designs kit, gesso, Tim Holtz stencil, Heidi Swapp gold mist, Lindy's stamp gang brown mist, and a circle and puddle stencil. First I laid down a layer of gesso. Then I used Heidi Swapp mist on the tim holtz stencil on the top half. Then I turned the stencil over to use the mist on the front of the stencil for the bottom half. Then I used the Lindy's mist and applied it with a sponge through the circle and puddle stencil. I used a CTMH stamp on top of the xoxo tag for the chevron look. I used a signo white pen to make the marks on the bottom of the xoxo tag. It is based on a sketch from Scrap Our Stash which you can find here:
Thanks for looking. Comments are always appreciated. Till next time, Barbara.

Layout #4 with the Frosted Designs May kit

Here is my 4th Layout with the Frosted designs May kit. And I still have more to use!
This is my dear son at 3 years old. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and copper Irresistables. I sprayed the copper spray on a paper plate and daubed a sponge in it to daub on the stencil. Then I daubed some of the spray on a background stamp on the upper right corner and to the left of the bottom of the photo. 
I used gesso on the paper before I used the stencil.
Thanks for looking.
Comments are appreciated.

Thanks for looking. Comments are appreciated.

Emboss resist with ink

This is the card I did for the challenge over at Scrapbook Blessings Club this week.
It involves heat embossing with white or clear embossing powder of a stamped image and then putting ink over it. Then you wipe the ink off of the embossed images.

Remember it is never too early to start your card stash for Christmas!
