For Cindy...

I can't believe it's time for another CCEE challenge already. Is the weekend really over? *sigh*

Well, this week we were challenged by Dawn Lusk to create a card with this A Lil' Behind set by H&M Stamps. Heather was kind enough to send Cindy Motherway enough sets for all of us CCEEers. Thanks Heather!! This set is a lot of fun.

Dawn added another element to this challenge though, and that was to add some type of chipboard. Mine is the sentiment.

Now, I realize I'm not Michelle Zindorf. Far from it. This is my first time trying to make a scene using her brayer technique...well other than the time she was featured on SCS, but I did something completely different than this at that time. My moon/sun is too bright for the bg, but I didn't want to mess it up anymore, so, this is it. The tree branch is from Stampscapes, and I hand drew the fence. For awesome tutorials on how to create a "Zindorf" card (please don't be afraid after seeing my humble attempt, I've seen many others do beautifully) click HERE.

Check out what the other CCEEers have created HERE.

I hope you all had a relaxing weekend and are refreshed to start anew!!
Happy Stamping!!
Tosh

Oh, you're probably wondering about the title....well, it was Cindy Motherway's birthday a week ago. I'm a bit late, but I wanted to make her a card with this image since it was inspired by her. She was quite the horseback rider in her younger days too I hear! So, this butt's for you Cindy....*grin*

Tosh, you did another super duper card; the fence is amazing! As my hip sister would say, "You're the bomb!." By the way, my word verification is "rearyth"; too funny!!

Mothermark said...

Liar, Liar Pants on Fire! You so have done this technique 42,000 times! How could you be this good? Its amazing...you are amazing and from now on you have to color all my images!

Note to self! Read the entire story before you make a comment instead of making your comment and then reading the entire story!

I secretly was hoping.....in private, all by myself...that this card would be mine! I cannot wait to see it! Even though the sentiment is borderline goofy! Hee! Thank you..please mail it TODAY!!!!! (Well, I can't wait and its already gonna be at least 3days to get here!)
