I have several HYCCT cards to share with you today. This first one is for my friend Jen Timko's challenge. Her theme is "Hope Soars" inspired by this quote: “When everything seem to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it ….” ― Henry Ford Isn't that fabulous? She's a pilot, so no surprise that we are using airplanes. :)
Sabrina's challenge was to NOT use traditional adhesive. Yikes! I can't sew on cards, but I tried. I did have to beat some serious dust off the machine that Mom got me several years back. I'm hoping that maybe I can work on it and figure out how to do it so that it doesn't look so crazy. I did try though! I had to sew the button on by hand. That I can handle!
Julie's challenge was to smash ink or paint onto your paper. I didn't have any acetate or glossy cardstock, so I put some Island Indigo reinker on my craft mat, added a bit of water, and smashed my paper into that. Once it dried, I painted over it with some gesso to soften the colors. I think it makes the perfect background for this cute little guy. I did a bit of paper piecing on his clothes to match up the colors as well.
And finally, Natalie's challenge was soft and cozy. You could use a soft material or images that conveyed that feeling. I still had some of the fabric that matches my favorite Spice Cake paper, so I decided to use that.
Whew! That's enough for one day, huh?!
Someone is getting way too spoiled with their Grammy here. I think Jason and I will be in for it once she leaves. There might be a whole day of time-outs at this rate! They are really enjoying their time together.
