Technique Lover's Challenge and the Double Dog Dare Challenge



Good morning everyone!! I woke up to rain this morning...yeaaaaa!! We need the moisture sooo bad!! Of course, rain means that I am forced to stay inside and stamp all day...such a deal!!!

Today on Splitcoast the Technique Lover's challenge is to use sticky tape strips and glitter to make a background. How cool is this! I used brown, red, and pink glitter to create the background for my chocolate themed design. The instructions can be found here.

This is also for the Double Dog Dare challenge I do each week with a group of SCS friends. This week Joanne (sleepyinseattle) challenged us to find inspiration from a box of Trader Joe's cookies. I have not had the pleasure of these wonderful cookies but others have told me that they are fabulous!!!



I used the Chocoholic set from Clear Dollar Stamps, stamped the images with Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with copics, covered all with Crystal Effects and glitter, cut them out and attached to the Nesties layers with dimensionals. The sentiment was also stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, cut it out with Nesties, and attached with dimensionals. The brown velvet ribbon and clip with ribbon finished off the design.

This was such a great technique to create a fun and sparklie background.

Thanks for visiting today and be sure to check out all the TLC designs on Splitcoast!!
