SISC71: Your Favorite Challenge!

This is a fantastic StampInsanity Challenge!!! You get to pick one of your favorite previous challenges, and make a new project with it! Well, since I love so many of the SI challenges, I couldn’t pick just one…so I chose 3! I used #38: It’s All About Me!, #41: Hard Core Hardware, and #69: Goin’ Goth (really…how could I not go with that one?!). I also chose to work with Pierrette, who is still one of my all time favorite images.

First, let me say that I still can’t get purple to photograph properly! It is so frustrating! Because her dress is fabulous and dark, and here it looks washed out and blue. But trust me, it’s a grapey purple.

For challenge 38, I decided to color Pierrette in as if she were me. So, in comes the purple and teal. I opted to not give her funky colored hair (there are times when my hair isn’t dyed!), and wicked makeup.

For challenge 41, I decided to work with some staples. First, I punched some on in the corners of the black cardstock. But, it needed more, so I made a border around the edge of the cardstock as well.

I also added some Mermaid Stickles to the bottom of the card. As far as Challenge 69 goes…I don’t think I need to say much! She’s pretty gothed out (though she is totally more goth in person. Damn purple!). But, add into that the metallic flame paper, the tearing, the hardware, etc…and I’ve got myself a gothed out card.

So what’s your favorite StampInsanity Challenge? I can’t wait to see! But before you go off and start creating a masterpiece, please be sure to visit the rest of the Ward 2 gals! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!!!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
