back to challenges!

We had a wonderful time in Lake George...looking forward to going back in a few weeks!

Anyway, I started back on my daily challenges on SCS again....here are:
The Technique Lovers Challenge...to use a glimmery, shimmery spray on your card...
Just mix in a spray bottle:
1 oz. water
1/4 tsp perfect pearls
a few drops (at least 6) of reinker
Viola! Homemade Glimmer Mist!
Recipe: Rubber Romance- Monika at the Beach, So Many Sayings (SU), Cardstock-SU kraft, certainly celery, soft sky, PTI White; Homemade Glimmer Mist (I combined certainly celery and bashful blue with a white perfect pearls), ribbon, prima flower, button, copic markers

This is for the color challenge (Black, Soft Sky, Kraft)... 
Recipe: Do the Hula (SU), cardstock-  SU kraft, soft sky, black, ww; vellum (sentiment computer generated), eyelets, versamark ink, memento black tuxedo, copic markers

This one was just for fun...I have been dying to make one of these guys! Here is the tutorial in case you are interested! It's not as hard as it looks! I made a bumpy template for the clouds and just sponged it on...the sun as well. The "rim" of the glass is embossed with dazzling diamonds. The straw is just a thin  piece of paper twisted!
Recipe: Define your Life (SU), Citrus and Such (SU), WW cardstock, vellum; inks- bashful blue, only orange, summer sun, close to cocoa, black, green galore; heat and stick powder, dazzling diamonds.
