And the winner is... KERRY! Jane and I picked our winners by a random drawing so Kerry please email me your address and I will send out your goodies! Thank you to everyone who participated in our first ever Chicka Challenge!!! Your cards were all great and it was fun to see how others interpreted our challenge. Don't forget to stop over at Jane's blog and see who won her blog candy.
Now on to Chicka Challenge #2. When Jane and I were on our little "getaway" we found some crackle paints by Ranger. We thought it would be fun to give them a try so we each bought 2 different colors. Now, you don't have to run out and buy these paints to participate this week. Our challenge is to make a card or any other paper related project, using any distress technique. Easy, right?
I made my card using the purple crackle paint and distressed it by sponging Memento Rich Cocoa ink right on top of my purple paint after it dried. It is hard to see what effect this gives in my photo but if you click on the photo it shows up a little better. The truck stamp I used is part of A Muse's new Halloween release which should be at your LSS right now. Stop in and check out the new images. You won't be disappointed. I also used the new Slate and Paprika card stock from A Muse and distressed it by sponging the edges of the paprika and white paper using the Memento Rich Cocoa ink. The candy corn falling out of the back of my truck is paper pieced using orange gingham paper. Got this idea on Heather's blog. You see, Heather is into Halloween in a big way and she has the BEST ideas on making all kinds of Halloween goodness. Check her blog often to find out what she is up to next.
Okay, now it is your turn to give this "distressing" challenge a try. Please post here or to Jane's blog by next Monday night and stay tuned to see what we have planned for Chicka Challenge #3.
