Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
Sorry for the delay. One of our fabulous hostesses had a reading glitch and read the schedule wrong. Luckily I have a challenge to post...just no samples. Here is your challenge:
TLC meets LSC
If you are like me, you are amazed by the fantastic techniques that other designers use on their cards, but you are little lazy about doing them yourself. Either it is too time comsuming or you don't have all of the supplies. Today, show us a technique using *ONLY* paper, ink and stamps. (You may use any sort of coloring tool too.)
Maybe it's faux embossing (there are a couple of variations...one with punches), maybe it is black magic pencil, maybe it is masking or tearing...
Show us what YOU can do with a simple technique so we can improve on our simple cards!
Again sorry, no samples today. BUT...post the name of your technique on this thread and I will set up an ongoing list of simple techniques that others can refer back to.
EDITED: To answer some questions...You are to free to use simple embellishments/tools. I'm not totally stoic when it comes to fluff and stuff! haha. Create away! (Just don't go over kill on us...we are going back to basics with these Friday challenges.)
Simple Techniques List
faux gel pen
faux dry emboss
baby wipe technique
rock n roll

If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!

Way to cover the bases Dawn!! I was just thinking this am that when I first started stalking....I mean cruising SCS, I thought the Limited Supplies Challenge was for those of us who had LIMITED supplies!! LOL.....this fits that idea.....
ok....first get the kids to school...then a bike ride, walk the dog and THEN a card!!
Thanks for filling in Dawn. This is a great challenge. Hope I can create with no embellies. Yikes. Just got back from the gas station. Gas is sky high and limited here in NC. I will not be able to buy embellies pretty soon. Need to go back to simple stamping. LOL....
Anything is possible when you open your heart.... My BLOG

That's limited supplies, alright, but it sounds good to me. Supermarket shopping this evening but maybe I'll come up with an idea before I need to start dinner.
Thanks for stepping in to solve the hiccup.
