Yeee haaaa it's Friday again!

Update!   Friday Mashup Fan Favourite is on again!  Head on over and see the rules, enter your idea for a mashup and you could win!


Hello blog friends, it's Friday again and I'm Loving a whole two days stretching ahead of me to play around with paper and ink!  Ok after the house work gets done, and yes after I mow the yard.  But after that, cause I've been good I can shut myself away in the air conditioning and put on the music and craft away till my heart's content.....sigh.

Because it's Friday, you know that means another fabulous challenge at the Friday Mashup.  I am having such a wonderful time on this Design Team, I think we have an amazing selection of talented ladies on our team, we have two guest designers each month AND we have a three way challenge each and every week  What more could a craft addict wish for?

Lisa brings us this weeks challenge, this picture is so cute, you can't help but smile and the quote is a giggle too, I took my grand kids to see Happy Feet 2 and they loved it, I must admit I had a few giggles as well.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using the "Spotlighting Technique".  
  2. Or Make a project featuring "Penguins".  
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project featuring "Penguins using the Spotlighting Technique"
*Here is a tutorial on the Spotlighting & Reverse Spotlighting Technique.

I don't actually own one single penguin stamp!  I searched high and low but to no avail.  So I'm not mashing it up this week again but I promise I'll be mashing next week!

I've gone with the reverse spotlight technique, first time I've used it and I'm reasonably happy with how it turned out.

The Friday Mashup Design Team have made some amazing projects for your inspiration so head on over there and check them out.  Can't wait to see all your amazing penguins and spotlights.

  1. Great card Kasey! I've never used the reverse spotlighting technique but I sure do like the results as seen on your card!

    Have fun mowing the yard! I'm not a fan of summer, I'm a winter girl through and through, but I do enjoy mowing my lawn and playing in the garden. I wont let anyone else in the house touch the lawn, thats *mine*. LOL

  2. I've never seen the reverse method before. It looks awesome; I might have to attempt that for club next month. :) I hope you get through those pesky chores soon and get to the fun part of your weekend!

  3. Fantastic Card, Kasey! I have never used either the spotlight or reverse spotlighting. I must learn this stunning technique. Thanks for stopping by and leaving love on my blog!
