Rockin' Wishes

Hello and welcome.  I don't remember if I've mentioned it before but I am SO OVER the 30 day trial period for 2022 already.  Especially since COVID has decided to visit my house.  First my son gets it and then I get it and I'm still dealing with the effects.  Fortunately, my husband has not tested positive and he's just as high risk as I am.  After two years of being so careful, getting vaccinated and boosted, I get a breakthrough infection.  Ugh!  Enough of that.

I have a couple of quick cards that I would like to share.  The first one uses a couple of Picket Fence Studios stencils.  I started out by stenciling the Field of Snowy Trees (NBUS) in Tim Holtz pine needles distress ink before stenciling the Slim Line Cloud Coverage (my new go to for clouds/snow) in Tim Holtz stormy sky distress ink using the Picket Fence Blending Brushes.  I then took a retired Stampin Up Wishes Awash saying and stamped that in memento tuxedo black before layering.  I then added some NBUS Christmas tree brads and popped the layered image up on pop up glue dots.  The final touch was adding some Picket Fence Gin and Tonic Sequins using Ranger Crystal Accents.

The second card features some stamps from Visible Image I had won a few years ago and never used (NBUS). I decided to go with a clean and simple card for a teenage guy and play along with the Splitcoaststampers FS781 challenge.  For my inspiration, I went with this card.  I started out by stamping the guitarist from Rock Out in memento tuxedo black and then stamped the Ink Splats in Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink.  The final touches were a couple of Spiked Ocean Water sequins using Ranger Glossy Accents to adhere them.
