Default THE NETHERLANDS--DELFT BLUE--by Gwen--Dec. 12, 6 p.m. EST-- DEC15VSNL

Challenge Title: Delft Blue
Hostess: gwenyt (Gwen)
Keyword: DEC15VSNL
Date: Saturday, Dec. 12, 6 p.m. EST

Goedemorgen! That means good day in Dutch. We are on our way to the NETHERLANDS!
My grandparents came from the Netherlands as children so my heritage is mostly Dutch. The Netherlands is known for beautiful, blue Delftware which you can learn more about HERE.
Another thing that reminds me of my heritage is the story of Hans Brinker, or The Silver Skates. Check it out HERE.
My challenge for VSN is a blue, white and/or silver color challenge plus one other technique of your choosing, such as watercolor, heat embossing, die-cutting, masking, etc.

View the Around The World In 80 Days gallery: Forums at Splitcoaststampers
View the Around The World In 80 Days Master Challenge Thread: Forums at Splitcoaststampers


1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10 P. M. EST ON Saturday, Dec. 19.
2. You have 1 hour to complete the challenge, unless otherwise noted.....you do not have to count prep time!
3. We have a special gallery for the 80 Days VSN.
a) From the "Main Gallery" dropdown list on the first page of the uploader, choose Events and Special Collections.
b) From the Sub-gallery dropdown list, choose Virtual Stamping and Scrapbooking Nights ~ it's the last in the list.
c) From the new sub-gallery dropdown list choose Around The World In 80 Days - it's the very top of the list.
4. Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
5. Please do not combine VSN challenges...but you may combine any other challenges with a VSN challenge!

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure your layout is seen. THANKS SO MUCH FOR PLAYING ALONG!!!

Love blue!! And somewhere I have one of these teapots, but packed a way a lot of my teapots, because I have too many.
Great challenge!
