Default FEB11VSNH ~ Saturday, February 26 ~ 3:00pm EST ~ A Sooty Kind of Love

Title: A Sooty Kind of Love
Hostess: Julz, Keyword: FEB11VSNH
Day/Date: Saturday, February 26
Time: 3:00pm EST

Ahh, love is so special and comes in so many unique forms! We love our crafts, we love our pets, and most of all we love the men in our lives! Sometimes though, pink just doesn’t cut it – at least not in my husband’s eyes!

My challenge is to make your heart sing in a masculine card using Soot Stamping! Incorporate the hearts, the love, the things he loves the most, but leave the pink behind!

Please remember you cannot combine any VSN challenges.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE.

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 7:00 PM CST/8:00 PM EST on Monday February 28.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, FEB11VSNH, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your card is seen.

I can't wait to see your sooty creations!

Soot stamping is something I have not tried yet. Thanks for making me try something new.

Great, great challenge, Julz!
This technique creates some really cool effects! My only advice would be to do the actual technique on a counter near a sink, for safety's sake.

Here's the card I made as a sample for the challenge! I actually sooted up a couple of sheets of paper at the same time, then picked the best one for my background.
