Emboss Bleach Color

This was a challenge for me At first I took emboss to mean a folder ( read the instructions first )
I embossed with folder and bleached out the image I will show you my attempts at the end
Now let us do it together HEAT EMBOSS  the image , bleach the wanted areas then color > I left the jacket and hat as it turned out when bleached colored the nose and mittens and used flocking on the fur
Come have some fun with household products

Here are my 4  failed attempts.              
Hey I could be on to something they don't look half bad

Tree # 2

This is tree 2 and a little display
I won't bore you with the rest

As Promised

Tree in burlap
This is number 1 of the 6 trees I do each year
I used to get all 6 done in two days
Not happening now since my bad hand
 and two broken legs I seemed to have slowed down not by choice
But it is still fun


 This TT on Geletos made me so curious I wasn't sure what they are so I went and got some
The TT calls for you to apply the geletos to an acrylic block mist and use a paint brush  I did the back gound on water color paper with the geletos and heat embossed the  MFP snow flake mini set  to make the Christmas card  I have watched some You tube on the product and it can be ( will be ) used in mayn ways .

Butterfly Ornament

I was shopping for burlap decorations  today. I want to do one of my trees in burlap
I found butterfly ornaments but oh my the price ( sure didn't sound like a price for burlap
So ............I have a roll of 6 inch lace covered burlap and one plain that I will never use that much opn my cards Also I have a spellbinder die of a butterfly that I never used because it is too big for a card
So here we go

My Besties Black and white

This image is called Skating party
Is black and or white
I chose AND or I would have just a piece of black card to show you 
I used three  coordinating prints and trimmed with black flowers
I had 6 pearls and decided to use them , well that is why they call these challenges 
I have a disabled hand and the pearls were attached together very closely 
when I clipped of the pearl it stuck to my hand protector  and trying to get that off 
was like watching a circus but don't kick this dog twice OH but I did 
three times  then the fifth pearl cut off easily and went right where I needed it while the sixth flew across my desk and stuck firm to the window 
When I finally got it off I had to use glue to adhere it to the card 
This card was a challenge

I am also entering it in
