Prettie Challenge

Remember how I told you that the Paper Pretties Design Team issues challenges to each other each week? Well, this was the challenge I issued 2 weeks ago. . .to use the Bouncing Brayer Technique. This card was really very simple. I just bounced the brayer on my Whisper White cardstock, stamped snowflakes in Craft White ink over top, then added some Stickles. The snowman was stamped on a scrap piece of paper, colored, cut out and mounted behind the "snow bank". The "snow bank" was made by tearing a piece of Whisper White cardstock, running it through the Xyron upside down and then dunking it in glitter. Finally, the sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Holiday Treats set. I'm very excited to see what the other Prettie Girls: Alli, Christie, Jillian, Joanne, Julie C., Julie M., and Kristine have come up with! I got an ADORABLE card in the mail from Julie Campbell! :) That's what I LOVE about these challenges. . .you actually get one of them in the mail! This week, Julie Masse will be issuing the challenge, so please be sure to check it out and play along! Thanks for stopping by! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Merry & Bright (SU), Holiday Treats (Papertrey Ink); Paper- Whisper White (SU), black, blue (DCWV); Ink- Basic Black (SU), Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor; Accessories- blender pen, brayer, Stardust Stickles, glitter, Xyron, organdy ribbon.
