Title: Parts Unknown
Hostess: Lydia, Understandblue
Day/Date: Saturday, June 16th
Time: 9:00pm EST
This challenge was inspired by a photograph I took on vacation in my beloved, beloved, Santa Fe, NM, which has the bluest skies on earth. I was walking around downtown and was in front of a store called "Parts Unknown" and I looked up and saw a beautiful, perfect jet and its trail in the pretty blue sky.
Anyhoo - I thought it would be fun if we all took a journey to STAMPY parts unknown, which is one of my artistic weaknesses - I tend to do the same techniques over and over and am not good at branching out. So let's be brave tonight! Try something new!!
Here's a video of the technique I used in my sample - I heated up a satin ribbon flower to make it all curly and fluffy! My profound thanks to Dawn Olchefske for the idea!
No need to use this technique - just find something that appeals to you that you've never tried, and go crazy! I look forward to seeing what you do - thank you for playing in my challenge and making this VSN so fun!

It works now! Well, it is getting late. I think I will look thru resources and the new techniques tonight, but do this tomorrow, unless I really get inspired!
Thank you for making us do something new, Lydia! That is always the best thing about VSN, learning something new. The flower looks too hard, but maybe I will try it..(tormorrow when I am fresh)
Thanks for the challenge to try something new Lydia. I love your flower. I've actually done that technique before at a workshop with some of my more experienced stamping customers. Here is my card. I tried out the faux letterpress technique. I think if I did it again I would have used a different embossing folder.
