4 in 1 - challenges that is!


It has been so long since I have even looked at the challenges on Splitcoaststampers so I thought since I had a few minutes this morning I would try one out and try to get back in the swing of things. Well I could not decide what challenge I wanted to do so I actually combined 4 in one card! I think that may be a record for me.

1. The Try a New Technique Challenge -- Faux Embossing
2. The color Challenge -- Rose Red, Kraft and Black
3. MoJo Monday Week 50 Sketch
4. Cindy's challenge to make a card without designer paper!

So here it is- I think the elephant can use a tiny googly eye but I can not find one at the moment. I will attach it before sending out though. Do you think there is too much going on?



I used the score pal to make the diagonal lines with my Rose Red and Black marker before embossing the square. Looks pretty cool IRL.
Here is a close up of the faux dry embossing.



My middle circle is just a bit big, lol. But I so wanted to use that blessings stamp (which was given to me by a dear friend and I have no idea who makes it -- can you help?) it is so perfect for a baby card.

Stamps: Nursery Necessities, and the mysterious Blessings Stamp
Paper: Rose Red, Basic Black and Kraft
Ink: Rose Red, Basic Black, white craft
Other: markers, ribbon, nestabilities, cuttlebug, score pal

I am so close to having a picture of all the stamps sets you can win by making a supporting me in my CROP walk. Our Daily Bread Designs is now donating a set too! So that makes it an even better basket! Check it out at the end of this post HERE.

I don't think there is too much going on...I think it's perfect and if you want to add something and can't find your google eye, just add a black brad.

Oooo, so precious! Definitely not too much going on. For the eye- how about just a dot with a black marker? But only if you can't find the googlie-eye. Googlie-eyes make everything better! LOL!
