OK, I'll admit it. I was more than a little bit appre- hensive about this week's Blogger's Challenge color challenge. I see from reading some of the other participant's blogs that I was not alone either. :-)
I decided to pull out one of my favorite Whipper Snapper Designs stamps called "Main Street". I colored the image with Copic Markers, doodled around the edges and placed it on dimensionals. The background was created by stamping the Frame Up #3 stamp from "Make an Impression" with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Stampin' Up DP and adding card stock to the inside of the rectangles. I then stamped the Papertrey Ink sentiment and punched it out with a circle punch. It too was placed on dimensionals. Shhh, don't tell anyone that the ribbon was added to hide a little boo-boo that I made while doodling. LOL. You have to love that thing called serendipity.
This is what I truly love about challenges. Being forced to step outside your comfort zone and ending up with a card or project that you really like in spite of your early reservations.
I mentioned in the last post that I had received a RAK . It was from no other than Smilin' Stef herself and it was this card from the Movie Dress Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast! Thank you so much Stef, I am thrilled that you thought of me.
TFL, have a terrific weekend!
