DICC: Betty’s Itinerary Plus Release Day for Jude & the Rockers!

It’s a big day in bloggyland for those of us who love Simply Betty Stamps! Not only is it release day for Jude and the Rockers, but you will get to meet the last of the Rockers, Oscar! But wait! There’s more! It’s also July1st (how the heck did that happen?!?), so that means there’s a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge and guess who’s itinerary it is? Betty’s! PLUS…she is sponsoring the latest Fussy and Fancy Challenge! Whew! Betty Boo is everywhere today! Let’s get this party started. First, Bettys DICC Itinerary:

1. My SBS stamps
2. Copics
3. Nesties
4. Distress tool
5. Ribbon
6. Crystals
7. Halloween paper
8. Halloween boarder punches
9. Diamond glaze
10. Pop Dots

For my project I used 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10. Not bad right? Plus, I worked with the Fussy and Fancy sketch:

And here is my card…

How rad is Oscar?! He reminds me so much of Phoenix…especially because of his long hair (which, alas…I will be cutting because the poor kid is just too darn hot in the Summer with it long). I even gave him brown eyes like Phoenix, as opposed to my typical choice of green. Oscar is totally my favorite image from The Rockers collection. He’s just too cool!

He is colored with my pencils and watercolor markers. And the ONE Copic I owned at the time. I have now upgraded to a whopping three, but when I made this card I only had an orange. See it on his shirt?

The zig-zag paper is from an old Halloween collection from Reminisce. The border punch is from Martha Stewart. The coupon is actually a real raffle ticket, from a spool I have. I distressed the edges of the green paper (Prima). And you can see that I popped the circle Oscar is hangin’ out on.

I do hope you will play along with at least one of these 2 challenges. If you join in on the Fussy and Fancy challenge, you have the chance of winning the entire collection of Jude and the Rockers in digi form! So hop on over to F&F, DICC, and of course, Simply Betty to get your paws on this rad new set of stamps! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
