I found a new challenge blog!! Ok, well, it's not new, but it's new to me. It's Anyone for Anya? , and I'm so egg-cited to have found them! Basically, it's various challenges using either The Greeting Farm or C.C. Design stamps. Now, when I first began scrapbooking back in February of '10 my mother and I went to a local stamp store for our first stamp shopping spree. I saw a picture of a stamp from The Greeting Farm called Cheeky Rockabilly and I immediately fell in love. Unfortunately....the store was completely out of that stamp. In fact, I couldn't find a single store that had it in stock. As I spent weeks searching for this stamp, I saw more and more of TGF's designs and loved them all. Finally I was able to locate one Cheeky Rockabilly, purchased it immediately, and all was right with the world...at least until I found my next must-have item. =)
Anyway, back to the challenge! This week Anyone for Anya? has an Egg-citing color challenge! Here is the inspiration photo:
and here is my entry (featuring Cheeky Rockabilly)!
I had a TON of fun with this card! I was able to use some of my new Easter/summer papers (from Me & My Big Ideas). The flowers were created using Hero Arts cream flowers colored with chalk ink and then various gems glued in the middle. Petals were finished off with a touch of Stickles to glitz it up. Cheeky Rockabilly was colored with Copic markers. I added a tiny bow to her hair, then added a tiny bit of Stickles to the shoes and bow. I added her to the card using pop dots to give the card some dimension, and to make it look as though she was sitting on the pearl and lace ribbon.
In addition to Anyone for Anya?, I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly: Truly Dimensional
Desert Islands Crafts: Berenice's Itinerary
For Desert Islands Crafts you need to use at least three of the following:
