For Vicky's last challenge, this time she chose for us to make a vintage card, using the Cracked Glass technique.
As she said, we haven't done this in ages, so it was fun to revisit!! My card uses a cream parchment bg, sepia ink, scads of layers of Versamark and clear embossing powder, and some lace and ribbons.

This week I am the challenger at Cornish Heritage Farms, and the theme is Green. (Surprised it isn't RED?)
Here is the digital stamp of an alligator, with a bg of dots. I ran the green through the Mesh folder to emboss, and painted the slimy guy in peeled paint and tumbled glass. I finished it off with some punched, ribbon, and a button.
Please join us linking your card to our BLOG, and you just might win some images of your own!

This was for both challenges today at SCS, the theme of road trip, and stamping on designer paper.
I hope this brings a smile to Mary Ellen's face as she recuperates and becomes pain free!

Our hostess Vicky challenged us to make a card using an angel. I went looking for angel clipart, and found this sweet little one!!
I used an embossing folder and a busy wide punch. A white ribbon bow at the top almost hides the birdie on the umbrella, but he's still there.
Please feel free to join us. Link your card HERE, and see what the rest of the team has done with their angels.

Today was a day to honor Queens of the past on SCS. Since I am in full Halloween mode, that's what you get.
This first card is a case of peeps321 (Polly) who does humorous collages. Obviously this is not a collage, but her card was done in shades of green, and I hope she thinks the saying I chose is funny.
I used crackle and canvas backgrounds, a skeleton from stampers Anonymous, and saying from Art Impressions.
Karen was our Queen #29, and her card had two birdies punched out of newsprint. I changed the theme to Halloween of course, and used ghosts and a punched pumpkin on my Clean And Simple card.
Thanks for joining me here. Have a great day!

Our hostess Vicky Challenged us to make a BRICK WALL. There is a tutorial at SCS HERE showing how to do it.
This is actually my second attempt. The first went right into the trash. I asked my mother how she liked it, and she just wrinkled her nose.
I wish I had left the mouth alone on the little Magnolia. She was much better without it, but ah, well.
Please join us this week, and every week, linking your card HERE. Be sure to check out the whole design teams efforts!

I colored the image with markers, used two nestie shapes, and an embossing folder on the bg.

This TK lighthouse was brayered with Kaleidacolor ink in shades of blue. I think the central portion with the very light blue looks like fog or haze int he morning!!
You can find a collection of Thomas Kinkade images at Cornish Heritage Farms Stamps.

It occurred to me after I made a spinner that it could be a little dangerous have a car spin around, but since it's an old car, and there are no occupants, it would be a wild ride!!
