Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #2: Juanita’s Itinerary

It’s time for the second Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! I can’t believe February is half over already! For those of you that haven’t heard if DICC yet, here’s the scoop. On the 1st and 15th of each month, we will post an itinerary of items that, if you were stranded on a desert island, you would need to make a project with. You don’t need to use all 10, but you’ve gotta use at least 3 of the items. If you play along, you will have a chance to have YOUR itinerary up for a challenge! This time around, we used Juanita’s itinerary, which I hafta say, I loved! I’ll let you guess why. Here’s her list.

1. Monochromatic
2. Movie or Book inspired
3. Buttons
4. The word “ FRIEND(S)” in your sentiment
5. Border Punch
6. Only one pattern paper
7. The color Red
8. No flowers
9. Swirls
10. Sparkle

This brought me right back to the days of Twilight Tuesday!

I used 6 of the 10 items on Juanita’s itinerary. Numbers 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 & 10. My stamped image is from Artful INKables, which I colored with watercolor markers. Border punch (used twice) is from Martha Stewart. Swirl is from Autumn Leaves and done in Black Lightening Ink from Color Box. Buttons are also from Autumn Leaves. Paper is from Prism and DCWV. I used Tiara Stickles from Ranger as well.

I really like layering my border punches. It gives them so much more depth, as you can see in this photo.

Here you can really see some of the sparkle from the Black Lightening ink and the Stickles. You can click on any of the photos to see them bigger. I hope you will join us for our second challenge. It’s a lot of fun to try to use as many of the items as possible! Here are the rest of the Island Girls (I made that up), please be sure to visit them and leave some love! Have an inspiring day!
