Snowy Starry Nights and a Goal Achieved

I did it! I did it!! I finished all 33 Dare to Get Dirty challenges hosted by the Dirty Dozen for Fan Club members! Woo-hoo!  After work, I spent a lot of my spare time working on these, and I just feel so doggone good that I achieved my goal. :-)




I also decided to try and give my brayer another try. I so love Zindorf's stunning scenes she creates with her brayering technique. I've never had the opportunity to take one-on-one instruction from her, but I just tried to follow along with tutorials she has done. I found it easier to use the sponge brayer roll that SU use to sell rather than the smoothy brayer roll. After I brayered the various colors, I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to line up and stamp these pretty Rubbernecker Kittie Kits trees. I added snow to the tree branches and the sky with a white gel pen. I used my Going Gray reinker and a blender pen to add the shading under the trees. All of my stitching is faux as are my buttons.

Since I didn't quite capture the texture of the beautiful starburst transluscent white paper I used, here's a close up.



Now, it's off to claim my DTGD Queen crown from SCS!!  Giggle.

I hope you're having a terrific day!
