Hello everyone, as you know my husband is in the hospital, well actually now he is in the convalescent center for in house PT. He starts today...YEA!!  I was planning on sitting this challenge out, as i am exhausted and due to the amount of driving and walking I am doing everyday, my pain level has been quite high in the knee, and back. However one of our other DT members had to sit this one out, so I didn't want us to be down by 2.


This Week at
we are playing 
HOPSCOTCH (with a twist of course)

You are to create something you can hang on the wall or a door, it must be no smaller than 4" X 4".

Write down the 8 items and toss them in a bowl (hat). 
Pick  out two from your hat (bowl). You will use those 2 items in that number. You of course, may use other items in your creation, but you MUST use the items you chose.

example:   you got 7 brads and 2 die-cuts, that means you must use 2 die cuts and 7 brads on your creation. Be sure to say what the items were that you chose, in your post.

Here is the Board:

The items I "drew" were: 2 die cuts and 3 textures. 
My wall hanging is 5" X 7"

 All the papers are digi papers from DEZINAWORLD, DIGI DESIGN RESORT and the third I can not remember (red flower) The stamps are CLOSE TO MY HEART.  I used Black Staz-on ink, because I used glossy paper...but it actually stuck to the paper, and pulled the color up with it as it finally let go...I have NEVER had this happen, I am thinking it is because it is a clear stamp and not rubber. So I had to line up the sentiment 3 times to get it dark enough, and sadly on the 3rd time, it moved.   so it was slightly double exposed, and then there was missing i had to fill in with a sharpie. I am upset over it, but I'm keeping this so it doesn't matter much. (I am thinking of stamping it on blank paper trimming it and covering it up though...but that of course will take away from the background I think.
The same thing happened with the vine border, but I think it looks ok.
 Here are my 2 die cuts- Tattered Flowers Tim Holtz die for SIZZIX, I embossed each one with a different embossing folder (2 of my 3 textures)
The 3rd texture is paint that I mixed with crushed lava rock gel medium, I dabbed it on instead of brushing it on to make it lumpy there is 2 textures in 1, HA! 
The lovely girl image is from TLC CREATIONS.

and play

Oh I love it Sue, I have had that happen with Stazon too and yes it may be the stamps being clear. Its so annoying. Thanks for the Dezina mention, i adore the way you collaged everything on this piece it matches beautifully
