Are You Up For It?

How does Crazy Collage sound? 

Over at Splitcoast Stampers there is a challenge called Ways To Use it.
Every Thursday a wonderful individual comes up with an amazing idea on creating a card and you're told certain items needed to create that same card and, the Ways To Use It.  This past Thursday was no exception and Crazy Collage was the name and at least four (4) different stamps, was the game.  Sounds easy right?  Wrong!  After many attempts at different stamps, ink colours, papers etc. I finally came up with 2 different designer papers, 2 different ink colours and 4 different stamps.  I added a punch here and there and an embellishment or two and finally got the job done.

Here is my entry for the challenge.

This was one pretty interesting difficult challenge.  I love that it made me think, the inspiration for the challenge was quite something.  Sometimes I feel that I can't even come close to creating a card like the ones shown for inspiration. I know that if I do these sort of challenges, it will only make me better.  I look at some of the work these ladies do and it's awesome and I think to myself, you kidding me.... I can't do that!  Had I not seen their cards though, I wouldn't be inspired and I wouldn't see the potential of the challenge.  I've learned so much doing challenges and seeing the different cards.  If you don't try, you won't succeed.  The best part though, there is always someone willing to help out.  If you're not sure of something, there is always someone ready to help.

Paper - K & Co. Designer Paper Solid Mat Pad
Stamps - Hero Arts Music Background, Hampton Art Cling Butterfly, Hampton Art Watercolour Daisy, Frogs Wiskers Ink for the sentiment
Ink - Stampin Up Brocade Blue and Old Olive
Punches - Martha Stewart Border Punch, 1 1/2" circle punch
Accessories - K & Co. scallop embellishment and flower, faux pearl

Wherever you are in your day, I hope you're enjoying it!
Wishing you many wonderful creations.
Thanks for visiting
