It's been raining almost everyday for the past week and yes the forecast is rain for this weekend, sigh.

Charlene thought it would be fun to send out a challenge for who ever would like to particapate.

Here is the link to the card sketch which comes from Freshly Made Sketches
Love this sketch.

Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 June

Here I am in mid June and I have my June tag finished!!

This month we are into blended watercolour. I love the look of watercolours so I was excited to play!
Once again I am using stencils. Love how versatile they have become for me well worth the money spent.

I also learned a new way to do the ribbon on the tag. Love this look!

Wishing you all a great week!

Earlier today I came across another challenge over at Simon Says Stamp wednesday's Challenge called "stencil it" so I thought I would share this tag with them :)

CC3C challenge #4

Compendium of Curiosities 3 challenge #4

Our challenge this week comes from page 49 Layering Stencil: Texture Paste

I enjoyed playing along in this challenge. This was the first time that I played with the texture paste in this way.
I even added some paint into my project. The lamp post was cut from a cereal box using the Tim Holtz holiday lamp post die. I then painted it black and edged with gold acrylic paint love that look.  I even snuck some of the gold paint onto the sunrays :)

If you are interested in joining in on the challenges Linda over at StudioL3 would love to have you join in!

Great News!
This week will be sponsoring the challenge!

Have a great week!

Our second project was the Faux Northern Lights which was case'd from Kay Kalthoff she also has a how to video

Our third and last project was the Chalk Marker on Peaceful Petals which was case'd from Brian King- thinking of you with happy watercolor.
