Did you ever have one of those days when nothing comes to you? I just had one of them. My brain worked very hard to come up with this card, a lot harder than usual and the card is not one of my favorites. The picture is bad too. I can't get the colors to look right, I really should consider learning how to use Photoshop. Oh well, that's not gonna happen today so I will go with what I've got.
Earlier this week a group of stampers announced that they had gotten together to create a new challenge blog. I'm familiar with a lot of their work from Splitcoast Stampers and their personal blogs so I was very excited to see what they would do. Crazy 4 Challenges posted their first challenge this morning. It's a fabulous sketch and there are fabulous samples from the design team. So I went to look for a stamp to use and nothing appealed to me so I went to look through my list of challenges and decided that I wanted to do the 2 Red Bananas Rub-A-Dub Dub Challenge to use rub ons since I had some really nice ones sitting around. I checked the color challenges and my rub ons work best for the Color Throwdown #58 to use Always Artichoke, Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip. I used nestibilities to punch out a white scalloped circle, a rose circle and a green scalloped circle. I placed a Marcella by K Bungalow Image Dimensional Sticker on the white card stock and mounted it on the mats. I sponged the edge of the white card stock and the floral petals with SU Regal Rose ink. I used rub ons from the matching Bungalow Glitter Word Transfers on the pink card stock. I cut the card stock to follow the wave in the words, and punched holes in it. Then I gathered the edge of some lace so that it would create a ruffle and sewed it onto the card stock. I attached this with dimensionals onto white card stock. The bottom edge of which was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. A Close to My Heart Nature's Ambiance brown rub on was applied to the card stock and then all the edges were sponged with the Regal Rose. Then it was applied to a piece of green card stock. A My Favorite Things sheer brown ribbon was tied around it and Heidi Swapp pink bling was placed along the punched edge. They are hard to see and don't look pink in this picture. You may get a better idea if you click on the picture to enlarge it. Because I used a brown card stock base I put a piece of white card stock inside and used another of the Close To My Heart rub ons on it.
I wish the team at Crazy for challenges great success, they already have several followers.
