Ray of Sunshine 54/12

Well, we didn't have as many entries as usual this week.  Maybe the technique was a little daunting.  So we have decided to award both our entries a Ray of Sunshine this week for stepping outside their comfort zones and joining our challenge.  Please join with us in congratulating both our winners, who, co-incidentally are both called Vicki, for their stunning entries. 





We would love it if both Vicki's would display our Ray of Sunshine badge on their blogs.

SC 54/12

This week the challenge is brought to you by Kris.   We have a sketch and a new technique to try.  Magical Masking.  This is a really fun technique and a great way to get your fingers inky (literally). 

Basically you need glossy card and some masking tape.  You take lengths of masking tape and put the sticky side down on the ink pad and give it a rub.  Then you put the sticky side down on your glossy card and rub it again.  Then you need to pull the tape off quickly (think waxing your legs - ouch).  The masking tape comes off and it doesn't tear the card.   It really is fun and you can get some really lovely backgrounds.

So here is the sketch.

And here is your inspiration for the week.



Weekly Guest Designer -

So now it's your turn, once you have created your card, scrap page or 3d item, pop back and add it to Mr. Linky.  Remember you have until Friday evening around 6pm to be part of the challenge.  

We can't wait to see what you create this week.

Ray of Sunshine Week 53

The entries this week were all fabulous and caused quite a bit of hardship when selecting a winner.  We were all a bit divided on who should be our Ray of Sunshine, however, after some hard thought we have selected this gorgeous creation by Carole as our winner.   Please take the time to visit her blog and let her know how much you love her work.


Here is our badge for Carole to add to her blog if she wishes.
