Play along each week with a Hambo Stamps image (rubber or digital) and you are in the loop for some awesome FREE images! Don't have any Hambo images yet? Click HERE for Freebies and JOIN US!

Today we are "raking in the techniques" with SNAIL RAKE:
This image is not available free, unless you played in last week's challenge and received it via email. 
Buy it HERE!
This week's challenge: Using Snail Rake, choose any technique from the Splitcoaststampers Resources Page to make your project. Please list the SCS technique name and link the SCS individual project (resource) page in your post.

For example: If I were using Crayon Rubbed Embossing, I would state that name in my personal blog post somewhere or card description in a gallery, and then also post this link (which takes people right to that technique):

Please read the instructions carefully so you are eligible for next week's FREEBIE! You MUST list the name and link to the Splitcoast technique that you used on your project. Although there are many technique sites in the cyber world, links to other techniques on other sites are not eligible this week. Here is the link to the SCS Resources page where you can access MANY fun and challenging techniques:

And to inspire you are some fun creations with a variety of techniques from our Bacon Bits:
Melissa used Alcohol Markers With Pencils
Jessica used Faux Stitching
Karin used the Spotlighting Technique
Everyone that followed last week's sketch challengelinked to the Hoedown blog post and emailed us a photo of their card by the DEADLINE received this week's image FREE! So check your mailboxes! Images are sent by Wednesday mornings at 7 AM. 

Remember that you don't have to use Snail Rake. BUT we do require HAMBO images only --- and you can use ANY of those for our technique challenge this week!  We have a wonderful line of rubber images, as well as digis and we like seeing those too! 

Stephanie used the Dazzling Diamond Dust technique on her pretty fall card:
Apple Basket - 3708 and Blessings - 1818
We had 26 FABULOUS entries last week in our Newsprint Challenge! Thank you to ALL for playing along with us! You can read about our Awards in the sidebar under Announcements.
