The challenge for this card was to use flags or pennants and red/white/blue.
this fun set by Waltzingmouse that includes arms that are waving!! I added the guitar to his waving hand to bring in the Western connection! I drew the street line with a micron pen to ground the scene and sponged the edges with Antique Linen.
For the next challenge the theme was rodeo clown, to use 4 bright colors and make something 'pop'
I think you can see all the bright colors I used - and I actually had a clown stamp from Rubbernecker to use on my card!. The sentiment is from Waltzingmouse. I popped up the clown on foam tape and the rhinestones kind of pop up being gems and all - right?!!
The 4th challenge was to use sequins on your card.
Waltzingmouse. I embossed a square Nestability on my card, tied a wrinkled seam tape ribbon around the card - then stamped the boots on a panel, drew the squiggle lines and adhered it inside the frame popped up on foam tape. I stamped the sentiment under the frame and added the flower sequins with quick dry adhesive.
Challenge #5 was to brayer a sunset.the desert silhouette and clear embossed it. Then I punched a circle for a mask for the sun - placed the circle where I wanted the sun setting and sponged the sky colors. I removed the circle mask and sponged the sun. Then I just stamped the sentiment on the card. My stamps are all from Waltzingmouse
And for the 6th and final challenge (phew!) our card had to be inspired by the words in the song Wild Wild West by Escape Club AND to use gingham.
I was inspired by the line "love her eyes and her wild wild hair"
the blanket background and sentiment with stamps from Waltzingmouse. I tied two ribbons around the card - one gingham and one wrinkled seam tape then layered the image over them with foam tape. I added orange rhinestones around the sentiment and yellow Stickles on the flames of the birthday candles all for a little sparkle!
So there you have it - thanks for sticking with me through this long post! It was one wild night of stamping let me tell you - you had to make each challenge card in 45 minutes or less (scout's honor!) nothing like stress to get your creative juices going!!
The weekend's almost here - whoo hoo!!! Kent and I plan on getting the kayaks out and paddling around a local lake tomorrow.
