Hey there House friends!!!! 

I hope you had a chance to play along with Esther's designer choice challenge last week at The House That Stamps Built.  If not...there's plenty of time, you have all month to get into every Wednesday challenge before a winner for a $25.00 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions is drawn.  

Today it's the month's Tic, Tac, Toe challenge.  You know the drill...pick three items in a row and create a card or project and have fun!  

Here's a card I made with the selections from the TTT board

Creating this card was such fun...I love it when you never know where it's going when you start a project and it somehow ends up looking pretty cool.  (So, now you know, I'm not a planner.  More of a "fly by the seat of your pants" kinda gal.)  

I first stamped the Ruffled Heart image on black card stock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  Before coloring the image I made a mask and splattered white guache around the bg.  I then colored the ruffle with white PrismaColor pencils adding black in the dark folds.  

The heart ruffle was stamped again on white card panel, the sentiment was added and then stenciled with "Scribbled Rose" stencil from A Colorful Life by lightly sponging Black Soot Distress Oxide Inks, giving it a satiny look.  That piece was then fussy cut and applied to the center of the black image.  

For a final touch of dimension I added Enamel Accents in black to represent pearls in the gathers of the pillow.  

Here's the challenge TTT board.  I followed the row across the middle (L-R) Black and/or White, Thank you, Dimension.  Let's see what you can do with this board.  

You will not be disappointed if you check out my team mates blogs and their creations...prepare to be blown away.

Join our TTT Challenge this week and enter yourself in the drawing for some fabulous stamps from Repeat Impressions.  The details can be found at THE HOUSE.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you found some inspiration here today.

Hello, Technique Junkies Stamps fans!  

Did you catch the new release on Tuesday, January 1?  There were 15 new stamps introduced and TODAY IS THE LAST DAY YOU CAN GET THEM ALL AT 15% DISCOUNT.  

You can grab the new release stamps at 15% off and all other stamps (and some supplies) can be yours with a 10% discount by using my personal code TJ10Cheri at check out.  Win/Win for you!  

To make this card, I used the new Caladiums stamp from the new release.  It's such a gorgeous stamp.  

This is a watercolor resist technique, created by heat embossing the stamped image onto watercolor paper.  The water colors are added by dipping a wet brush into the paint and applying it to the image in the areas where you'd like the color to be.  You can alternate water with paint to create a blending and use a soft cloth or paper towel to dab up the excess.  This is truly beautiful in real life.  

I added a word die cut and some sequins for a little dimension and accent.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Don't forget to grab my discount.
