The first day of VSN was a complete success! I had a ton of fun and I hope you did too if you played along.
I managed to get to play in 5 of the 6 challenges ... although I did play a little ahead of time being that I am again a hostess for this VSN. Of course I did still need to play by the rules in regard to time limits etc just like everyone else.
This first one I did actually make in real VSN time as I didn't get time to make it before that. I decided to use another of the Riley stamps by Hanna Stamps which are going to be released on the 1st February .... I am just loving these stamps!
I know the circle looks a little crooked here in the photo .... but it isn't that is just the illusion you get because you can see the back of the card from the front ... I cut the circle out using my circle cutter.

This card was for the Chocolate or Shoes Challenges .... the hostess provided us with a picture of yummy chocolate shoes which we were to use as our inspiration ... we could make a shoe card, a chocolate card or a card using those colors or all 3 ..... I guess I could say mine is all three as I would title this one Chocolate Shoes!

My final card for today was for the "Nail Polish, Mud Mask & Lotion Challenge". Our card had to contain some masking. I stamped the penguins, created a mask which I put over them. I also used a torn mask to create the ice area of the card. With both masks in place I brayered in the sky and then stamped the trees in the background. When all this was completed I removed both masks.
