About Me

My photo
Welcome. My name is Lisa and I live on a farm in Northeastern PA. I have a wonderful husband of over 30 years and two fabulous sons. One with a wonderful wife and another with a wonderful girlfriend. I have a 6 year old granddaughter and an 4 year old grandson. We have a dog, two cats, and 5 horses. I started into this art as a possible scrapbooker until my good friend Lou Ann (SCS Crooked Stamper) invited me to a Stampin' Up party. Now I'm hooked. We had to turn a room of our home into a craft room for all my stuff. Then I needed a second craft room and did classes. Then I decided to open an in home store using three more rooms of our home. Between Lou Ann (Crafter and IT department) and Mary Ann (Crafter and Jewelry department) and a few other friends, I'm having the time of my life!!!!

OCCC Resist with a Twist

     Our Creative Corner has got me back in the challenge game again.  That, and I got my computer fixed and I finally found my camera.  On this challenge they are looking for a resist technique, but you need wings somewhere on the card.  So here is mine. 
     With this card I stamped the background image with Ranger Emboss It, sprinkled on the Ranger Clear Embossing Powder, and heat set it.  At that point all I had was a bumpy white card. 
     Next, I got out my Tim Holtz Distress Inks and my ink blenders to add Mustard Seed to the background.  My dandelions and others weeds were starting to become visable, but not as much as I wanted.  So back to the Distress Inks for a little Broken Glass.  The mixture of the two colors blending made a great green color.   As I picked up the card and was giving it a closer look I realized how cool the texture of the card was.  I can't keep my hands from running over the embossing.  But, enough about my new fetish. 
          For my wings, I decided to go with butterflies from Cheery Lynn Disign.  The first one I did using Tim Holtz Stonewash Alcohol Ink with Pearl Mixative and Blending Solution.  Next, I gave it a spritz of Sheer Shimmer.   

     For my second butterfly, I used Luminarte Daubers and Spritzers.  I won a couple of daubers at the CKC convention in Lancaster this year, and of course I had to have more.  So after appling Sky and Poppy Red and did a sprtiz in Bashful Blue (no relation to SU). 

     A die cut here.  A black embossed sentiment there, distressing the card base and front, and TaDa.....Resist with a Twist.  Thanks for looking!
