Sk8r Boi- Simply Betty Challenge #1

If you are here to see the latest StampInsanity challenge, for some reason, I can't get it to post above this one. I wrote the SI post days ago, and now it won't post on top! So, please scroll to the next post. Thanks!

I’m stoked! I LOVE Simply Betty stamps, and I am so excited that they finally have their own challenges!!! For this first challenge, it was a photo inspiration. Check it!

How rad are those socks?! Well, when I saw the picture, I instantly knew what I was going to do…because I already had the purrfect Christian colored in! I had done him up a couple of weeks ago. I was stumped on his skateboard, so I asked my niece her opinion (since she was watching me color anyway). She told me to make his board tie dyed. Weird. She is SO not the hippie type! But I went with it! And it came out pretty rad!


You’ll need to click on my pic to really see his skateboard. And check out the Basic Grey paper I had in my stash! The little strip under Christian’s feet? It’s perfect!


I used some random stickers for the “Sk8r Boi,” and some teeny puzzle pieces that Kathi gave me. Thanks, Kathi!!! I lurve ‘em!!! I was inspired by the leopard print on Betty’s socks, so I used the puzzle pieces as a (very) loose interpretation of the print.


Here’s a close up of my stickas!


The winner of this challenge gets a rubber Miller and London…which is SUCH an awesome prize! London rocks, but there’s something about Miller that just makes me smile! He’s groovy! So, I hope I win!!! But even if I don’t, I have a funky card I made! Have an inspiring day!!!
