Incy Wincy Designs Challenge - Touchy Feely!!! SNEAK PEEK and BLOG HOP!!!!!

This weeks challenge is to get TOUCHY FEELY!!! LOL Ok, just kidding.....well, not really!!! Put some TEXTURE on your project!!! Here is my card for this weeks challenge:

I used the dinosaur from Incy Wincy Designs and a sentiment stamp I've had for a long time from Whipper Snapper (I think!) The background is a part of a larger background stamp from Magnolia, which I got from Simon Says Stamp! Inside it just says Happy Birthday!

The first texture is the cuttlebug background (Mesh) and sponged with ink, and then the buttons too are texture I guess eh??

This is what I'm most proud of!!!!

My texture on the dinosaur is Liquid Applique (grey), that I brayered on the dinosaur then heated with my heat gun, I wanted it smooth - not totally puffy like goopy LA does. BUT, I didn't want it all to be smooth so I added a bit more where he might be "scaley", and when it puffed up, I just flattened it a bit with my finger to give it a "warty" look - LOL - How is that for TECHNICAL lingo???

The second GREAT thing I have to tell you is that Incy Wincy Designs is getting ready to release 6 new images & let me tell you, they are FABULOUS!!! Here is a sneak peek of 1 of the images!

What do YOU think it is??? You can win this image plus one more of your choice if you guess correctly what this image is!!! You can also win the image plus 1 more at EACH of the Design Team's be sure to HOP around and find all 6 of the sneak peeks!!!!

Please leave a comment here with your guess & I will draw a winner next Monday!!! Now, there are 5 more chances to win, and 5 more sneak peeks to take a look at, so please head to HEATHER'S blog to see her sneak peek!!!! Good luck & have fun!!!!

I hope you will join us this week for our Touchy Feely challenge and our little Blog Hop!!!!!!! Stay tuned for MORE new releases in the next couple of weeks!!!! Have a great week!!!

Corrosive Challenge Blog - Things with Wings

This weeks challenge on The Corrosive Challenge Blog is THINGS WITH WINGS!!!! Fun, and SO many options!!! With all the GREAT fairy images out there, and bugs, butterflies, birds...the options are ENDLESS!!!! I decided to use a dragon from Dustin Pike - such a cute lil dragon!!!!! It is a simple layout on a 5x5 card base because I printed the dragon out a bit big! I sponged the sky around him & added stickles to his horns, spots and belly!! The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusive set called "A little birdie told me" - found HERE!!!!

Thanks for flying by!!!! Have a great week!!!!
