I can't believe its the end of another week already. It's been wet here this summer which has meant cooler weather, but trying to get the washing done in between showers has been a challenge. But I am not complaining, at least we are one of the lucky ones not having to be evacuated from our homes, which is happening at present to many people in other parts of NSW and Queensland. The wet weather is set to remain with us for some time as I just heard the forecast that in February 21 out of the 28 days are expected to be wet. It's great weather for ducks and frogs and need I say crafting!
Whilst having my crayons still on hand from yesterdays post where I showed a quick how to on doing a Crayon Resist Background, and with Valentine's Day just around the corner, I thought I would use a Resist design (using some of my new Unity Stamps) and link up all my Unity Friends over at the Unity Blog for Friday Friends with Flair (FWF). Today's post for FWF not only links you up with the wonderful creations of lovers of Unity, but also showcases some wonderful new stamps by Christy Tomlinson that I've just added to my wish list, so be sure to check it out!
For my CAS looking card today I started out using the Sketch over at Paper Players, Challenge #80 using my resist piece. Once I had completed my design and used my crayon I sponged around the stamped hearts with red ink to reveal the resist and then used my Red Tria Maker to colour in a couple of the hearts, finishing off the design with a punched heart and a rhinestone in the centre of one of these hearts. These fabulous newspaper print hearts and the sentiment are from the 'We Treasure You' Stamp Set by Unity which was an end of year gift sent to their Kit of Month Subscribers. They are just perfect to make a Valentine's Day Card for my hubby who is not really into all the cutesy stuff.
I am also entering this card into a couple of other challenges I play along with from time to time but this will be the first time in 2012.
Cards for Men - Challenge #3 Seeing Red
Paper Sundaes - Challenge #105 Valentines
I hope everyone has a Fabulous Weekend.
