Brought to You By the Letter "S"

One of my favorite challenge groups is the Challenge Your Stash group on SCS, under the capable and organized leadership of my friend Barb. The idea is we can't shop for anything when making our monthly challenge card (which we post on the 28th of each month). 

We take turns choosing the theme. This month it was my turn. Since it's September, I challenged the ladies to include something on their cards/projects that begins with the letter "S".

My "S" is Snowflakes

The snowflakes paper is actually a piece I've been hoarding for a long time. If I remember correctly I received it in a Dueling Darling kit. It was all white, but the snowflakes were shiny and the background wasn't. I kept wondering... yep, surely it would work. I decided to give my idea a try on one little corner of the paper. I blended ink onto it and it transformed the paper beautifully!

After blending blue onto it, I took a cloth and buffed it to make the snowflakes shiny again. Then I added just a bit of lavender ink into areas of the paper but not all over it (to mimic the look of the other designer paper I was using).

I hope Barb and the other Challenge Your Stash gals like my card.
