Cheers and happy T-day to everyone, but especially to the T-day gang at Elizabeth's Blog.
This past week, my daughter Crystal and I did a charcuterie tray for our bunco group. We love making them. I really wanted to make it because I wanted to make that meat rose in the middle after watching a tutorial on TikTok - isn't it funny how something like that sticks in your head? It went well with the yummy salads my sister, Sharon, made for the night.
A made a little art this week as well.
I have a spread for Neet's Type Theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* - it was going to be spooky but it took a turn and ended up hauntingly sad instead. Funny how that happens....
The images are all DRS Designs, the stencil is Andy Skinner, and the background is an ISS with Distress Ink.
The card below was made with a fun background I learned during the Dare to Get Dirty event at Splitcoaststampers. It was featured by my friend Shelly. The technique starts with alcohol ink scribbed on velumn, the scribbles are activated with rubbing alcohol, and then splattered with alcohol. The last step is splatters of alcohol ink. It worked out as a great background for this new Witch Gnome and Greeting from DRS Designs.
I tried another great technique featured in the watercolor challenge on Splitcoaststampers this week. This involves doing an ISS background and then inking up images with distress oxide and spritzing them with water before stamping. I made a bunch of cards using it but today I am just sharing one of them (images are DRS).
Here is a fun little tea bag journal I made for my friend Jayne's DTGD challenge at SCS. Tea Bags can be so fun! The stamps are from SU! and the papers are all Stamperia Alice.
This pictures shows all the little tags.
ATCs for the week - these are images from Close to My Heart, DRS Designs, and parts of a cut up Martha Stewart Halloween Label. The ghost and broom are from a Tim Holtz Halloween Die. These are my favorite Halloween ATCs I made. Elizabeth, you created a monster! I can't stop making them!
