Default SEP12VSNH ~ Saturday, September 22 ~ 2:00pm EST ~ Don't Get Caught Daydreaming

Title: Don't Get Caught Daydreaming
Hostess: stamp_momma
Keyword: SEP12VSNH
Day/Date: Saturday, Sept 22nd
Time: 2:00pm EST

I'm easily distracted because I've got two sketches I want to try, an image to color, a package of pretty new paper on the counter...I mean, because I'm a daydreamer.

Eight hours in the classroom can be a little taxing on the creative brains, can't it?

My challenge is to make a card using the Glitter Window technique. You can find a super helpful tutorial here. I love this technique because it can work for both elaborate creations *and* clean-and-simple designs. With an abundance of dies and punches available these days, it should be super easy.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE
UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday September 24th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, SEP12VSNH, 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 layout is seen.

Believe it or not I JUST MADE a glitter window card yesterday for another challenge....guess I'll be making another one! I first saw/learned this technique several years ago at a Stamp-A-Stack and really thought it was clever. Now lets see if I'm clever enough to come up with another one!

Here's my second effort:

The first try had some great autumn leaves dp behind, which was obscured by the glitter window. In real life, you could still make out the dp. Not so in the photo:

I started out with good intention, but then my Glitter window turned into a

Faux Glitter Window.

No worries, I am sparkling from head to toe anyway....so does my house. LOL

Great challenge, Lori!
Hugs and smiles

This was really a challenge. I can honestly say me+packing tape+glitter=big mess. Here is the result:

Thanks for the challenging challenge!
