Saturday - Laura's Challenge

Welcome to the next Challenge issued by Laura's Loft. The design team and I are excited to be sharing our projects with you today and hope you play along with us.

This month our challenge is a Resist challenge.

Resist is a fun technique.  There are so many ways to do resist.

The rules are easy.  Create a project using the resist technique and then upload it to Laura's blog the Inlinkz.  There is a giveaway so check out the information below.

Challenge runs Friday January 16th 11 am EST through January 29 11:55 pm EST.

Here is my resist project.  I again used the Love Notes set from CAS-ual Friday.  I began by using a Versamark pen and coloring just the heart on the note.  I stamped it onto my white card stock and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  After I had my hearts embossed, I was ready to apply my color.  I first chose Spun Sugar in the Tim Holtz Distress Mini Kit #4.  I used a blending tool and applied the ink randomly to the base.  I them used the Picked Raspberry in the Tim Holtz Distress Mini Kit #1 to add another color to the background.  I used my blending tool to blend the 2 colors and even out the lines.  I then used the sentiment from the set to stamp "Happy Valentine's Day" and punch the ends.  I added it to my card with dimensionals.  I found a fun ribbon in my stash that matches and added it with a little bow.  To finish my card I punched a heart from a lace doily and added it to the ribbon at the bottom.  I added the layer to my card base.  To finish off the card, I used the musical note and the ink pads and inked up just the heart.  I stamped it at the bottom of the inside layer as well as the envelope.  Here is my finished creation.

Don't forget Laura has a giveaway.  She is giving a $25 gift card to the winner.

This month she also has a second prize.  To the second winner Avery Elle has donated a gift certificate.

Make sure you make a project using the resist technique and link it up on the Inlinkz tool on Laura's blog.   We would love to see what you would do for the Resist Challenge.

Thanks for visiting me today.  I hope you have some plans to be creative!  I will be working on my pocket letter.  Have a Super Saturday!
