~Scraps of Darkness~ Too Cute Challenge

Hey everyone -- Meet Lucky. She was born in my kitchen March 8th! I tried the tissue paper technique that my dark sister taught us.
Here comes the corners:

Dusty Attic 0543 Heat embossed silverish

The other DA piece heat embossed with tissue paper peeking out

yes that is flocking sticking to the paper somehow!

I tried to use every color I owned! I loved it!

More fun colors!

Here's Lucky! Isn't she adorable?
I used my SOD kit only the letters and the paws were from outside. I realized how much I missed heat embossing with when I did the DA pieces. I really need to do it more often! I also got out my cropadile and got to punch. I USED MY LUCKY 8 PUNCH ! and my MS punch. I also used Kaisercraft -Madame Boutique line from my SOD line.
Also gotta give credit to Lindy Stamp Gang, Shimmerz and Maya Mists! Those were what I used on the tissue paper!

Thanks for Looking!
Happy Scrappn!

Tissue paper

Thanks to a tut from one of my dark sisters, Renea, I am trying the tissue paper technique. Here it is drying and I will build on it after it has dried. I used several spritz's and paints and mists on it.
More later

~Scraps of Darkness~ Grandparents

I'm getting in at the last minute doing the Feb Sketch of the month provided by Suepup. I happened to come across a rare set of photos of my grandparents. My grandpa died when my mom was a teen. I used to play with my grandma and she would let me stand on a table. I need to make copies of those. Ernestine Cora Martin and Johnny Baumgardner Watson.  I loved using the handmade products from CraftySprinkles and Renea from My Glitter Coated Life.
Of course I got to use my new Lucky 8 Punch from We R Memory Keepers the doily one. I also snuck in some Dusty Attic : DA0543, DA0002, DA0466.
I had lots of fun playing with the Shimmers Paint and the Lindy stamp paints.. really cool. I also put pearls everywhere! LOL
Thanks for looking.

DA0466 Ornate Corner 7

DA0543 and I spritzed it! Love that dress form resist canvas

Loved those tiles and Spritzed this DA0466 a Fuzzy Navel Peach

Loved the metal flower and leaf!

Thanks for looking!
Happy Scrappn and thanks to Mel over at for putting together such amazing kits each and every month!
