Three Amigos Blog Hop September 2016

Welcome to the September 2016 Three Amigos Blog Hop!  So glad you stopped in!  We are three Close to My Heart Consultants and good friends that challenge each other each month to create something with some awesome CTMH products based on a theme.  This month it's all about techniques... three to be exact... however, I think I'm over a bit!

Couldn't help myself!  I used a few on this card that I started while I was visiting with Mitra during my recent vacation.  While we were waiting for spray painted cans and jars to dry I joined her in some papercrafting.  So the paper is CTMH... one of my favorite papers and zip strips from Chalk It Up.  So the flowers aren't CTMH... they are from a rub on and sticker set that Mitra had and was trying to use up... it's a rubon and I colored it in with my Zig Real Brush Markers.

Have you checked out the new Complements??  They are awesome!  Those two little glittery arrows and heart are from the pack as well as the banner below.  That sentiment is from one of the stamp sets that comes with the new Cricut cartridge, Flower Market and that pretty ribbon!  Yes!!  We have ribbon again!  Those sequins... when we were crafting at camp, we were gonna throw them away because they had no adhesive and we had no glue, but I threw them in the bag with the rest of the stuff and so glad I did!

So remember I told you I was gonna be doing some spray painting in the future?  How about that spray painted metal paint just like what we used on the canister and if you look closely at the white piece the flowers are on you'll see some spray paint splatters there too!

So, my techniques... oh idk... edge distressing, embossing, spray painting, water coloring, rub-oning?, heat embossing, sequining, die cutting... ok some of these probably aren't techniques... but I think I've met the challenge!

Now hop on over to see what Susan and Donna have created for you!

And come back this weekend for some more fun!  It's almost time for some more Cutting Cafe Inspiration!  Atlantic Hearts is on Monday!  Lessology is next week!  Lots going on here in September!

I haven't seen the edge distressing in a while! I remember you used to do that a lot... way back when...
I love the card and the arrows in the ribbon! Missing you already. Wish we would have had more time.

Beautiful! Every time I see this combination of colors, I think of you! Time to dust off my edge distressing tool. I love the texture it added to your card! The rub-ons colored with the brush markers are pretty cool too!
