Virginia View Challenge #23

Happy September! 
I am happy and excited to start our latest challenge.
I don't know about you, but I like to control the elements in our design. 
But what about using the following as part of our design?

"Spray, Mist and Splatter" are not the immediate elements that you reach often to add to your design. But when you do, aren't they so much messy and uncontrollable exciting and fun? That unexpected and surprising element truly makes the design organic and handmade!

This challenge's winner will receive ....

 $50 gift card to Lindy's Stamp Gang store
Since 1998 Lindy's Stamp Gang created their own mica, sprays, paint. They are known in the industry for their gorgeous two-tone colors available in sprays, powder paints...etc.
 You can visit  Lindy's Stamp Gang over Simon Says Stamp

Note: you are strongly encouraged to use Altenew Stamps in your entries as there will be a special link-up event to win a gift card to the Altenew online store (more details to come later).

I am using both Lindy's Stamp Gang and Altenew products for my You Tube video.

The unexpected splatter and spray mist enhances the design, don't you think?

Card #1
Card #2

Card #3
Card #4
  I want to encourage you to be creative and get messy!
Get those sprays , mist out and add some splatter.


There is no limit as to how many cards you can enter. The Top 10 Favorites will be chosen based on the overall design, techniques and execution. 

You will get this hard-earned blog badge (wink!).

  The winner (randomly chosen from Top 10) will receive a $50 Lindy's Stamp Gang gift card. 
To keep things simple and easy, the challenge will run till midnight September 18h. Top 10 favorites and Honorable Mentions will be announced on the 25th.

Please continue to support this challenge by using the links to shop over Simon Says Stamp and Craftsy (see side bar). This will not cost you anything, but the small commission from your purchase will go toward our prize. Thank you!

great set of cards, I love splatter, spraying doesn;t always work for me ;-)

Marianne said...

I guess I was wrong thinking the new challenge would be about butterflies and things with wings, but of course I could still use them with sprays and splatters. Love your bright and happy cards.
