This is week 5 for April. There is no sponsor this week. I will have an announcement soon of a new occasional sponsor. Just waiting for the months they want:-) 

For this week I needed a quick card so I did an emboss resist. I used a background stamp with Versamark and white embossing. I then sponged the background with a couple of Distressed inks. The sentiment is silver embossing and then a bit of bling.

The challenge this week is to emboss and ink or paint over it. Can't wait to see all your wonderful creations.


Here is my card

MUST BE A FOLLOWER TO WIN PRIZE OR TOP 3!

Hello, Judy Woodland at your service, and welcome to this week's Mod Squad Challenge. I thought it would be fun to do something with color this week, and what could have more color than a color wheel? All you have to do for this challenge is choose 3 colors from the color wheel and create a card. Technically there are primary, secondary, and tertiary combinations on a color wheel, but I'm not going to be that picky. Just pick colors that are pleasing to the eye together. Have some fun with it.




PRIZE:
There is no sponsor this week so another prize from my stash. I got this stamp set in a grab bag. A couple of been used but they are clean:-). Not sure who makes them.

The Ingredients Are :
DCWV Miraposa and Stardust Patterned Paper
Sizzix Mixed Media Die by Tim Holtz

This next card is a little more subdued, but I used the same colors as the first one:

MUST BE A FOLLOWER TO WIN PRIZE OR TOP 3!
 
Welcome back everyone and to all the new members! I will leave the "Follow" reminder here for a bit:-)

On to our next challenge. For many of us Spring has actually arrived:-) Others not so much! I challenge you to make a card with the focal point being a BUTTERFLY. Not just a butterfly somewhere but the FOCAL point of the card. Maybe we can help some of the northern states undergo metamorphosis!
There is no sponsor this week but I have a prize from my stash. The GKD Thank You duo, Congratulations stamps and 1 other (don't recall).





Here is the card I made. I used watercolor paper and sprinkled on some Brusho crystals. I then sprayed with some pearlized water. Then stamped the cake, added some GKD ribbon , wood frame (painted with pigment ink), and the vellum butterfly from GKD and white embossed.

You can use ANY VENDOR to qualify for the prize. I just happen to have mostly Gina K Designs.

 MUST BE A FOLLOWER TO WIN PRIZE OR TOP 3!
 
Happy April  to all you crafters from Kathy Krug.  I am excited to be the hostess for this week’s challenge at Mod Squad.  How about a game of Tick Tack Toe.  You can go across the board horizontally, vertically or diagonally to pick three techniques or elements to use on your creation and tell us which ones you picked.  

You can use more than three of the design elements as long as you use the three from the direction you selected.  I decided on the third vertical line … piercing, coloring, rhinestones or pearls, but I actually used all nine squares either on the front or on the back of the card. 
Please tell us in your description which 3 you used.

It is a prize week, with a Gina K Designs grab bag! Be sure to add MSC in front of your link name for an extra entry. See HERE




The prize this week is a grab bag from Gina K Designs so I know you want to participate.   I am looking forward to seeing what YOU will create. 



I tried a Peek a Boo card for this challenge.  Here it is.

A bit of business first. Apparently many do not read the few rules we have before posting. I was shocked today when picking top 3 (I ended up picking 2). So many were not followers. We simply need your support by following us. In return we spend many hours to provide challenges and great prizes. Thanks for understanding.

A big thanks to all the participants this past week. We have a Top 2 and a random winner (Random.org used). Anyone who followed the rules can win!

Please tell your friends and pass along the link:-) We have great prizes to give away and wonderful sponsors.



RANDOM WINNER!

Judy Woodland! Isn't this the sweetest?
