TSMONDAY, Try a New Technique!

Happy Monday, it's time for another Totally Stampalicious Challenge, and this weeks challenge is to try a new technique of your choice! Try something that's new to you, or a technique you haven't done in a long time!

On Saturday it poured rain here all day, and it looked like it was finally going to get rid of the snow that's been lingering, but Sunday we woke up to snow...lots of snow...well 4-6", which is 4'-6" too much! lol So that made me think of sunny yellow, cause we are all craving some sunny spring weather!

I made the background paper using MariLynn's W.I.S.H Technique I found at SCS TLC299.
Cut open a sandwich bag
scribble on some colours with markers...I used SU barely banana & daffodil delight
spritz lightly with water
fold the bag back in half to combine colours
open bag and press paper into ink
*I added a step by spritzing on some vanilla smooch spritz & pressing my paper into that
You can't see it in the photo, but it looks pretty!

I used the new Bling Thing Scarlette. She's a Bugaboo image now available in stamp form at Totally Stampalicious! I coloured Scarlette with copics, and added some gems.

Please join in the fun and upload you creation to the Totally Stampalicious Blog for your chance to win a great prize! The Guest Designers are chosen from the challenge participants!

I am also entering this in the Bugaboo Catch the Bug Challenge, Anything Goes!

Have a Great Day!
Laurie

I love your card and the W.I.S.H technique! The yellow background is stunning - I bet it sparkles with the smooch spritz. Beautiful ribbon and bling too!

Sounds like you and I had the same weather Saturday. I am ready for SPRING!
