A Scary Challenge!

It's Wednesday so that means Prettie Girl Challenge time! Two weeks ago Joanne challenged us to do something that scared us - use an image we haven't used yet, a color we hardly ever use, a technique we are afraid of trying - just do something that would stretch you!

I combined a few things to come up with this card. First of all I used a stamp that I have had for several months but have not used. I actually won this cute Amuse ligerie stamp during Amuse-a-palooza but just didn't have any ideas for cards with it! So, I also got these great Karen Foster snap stamps on ebay several weeks ago (again, until now unused) and thought these will be perfect for a sentiment for this stamp! Finally, you saw last week our results with the bouncing brayer technique - I decided to try that again since it seems to take some practice.

So, the combination of those 3 things resulted in this "scary" card for my DT buddy Jillian - cute, huh? I covered the main image with Dazzling Diamond glitter and used my scrumptious Strano brown velvet ribbon (LOVE it!!!). What did you do that scared you? Did you participate in this challenge? We'd love to see it - send me a link in your comment! Today's challenge will be issued by , and remember my challenge last week was to use chipboard on a card - get out ALL that chipboard you've been hoarding and USE it!! Check out the other Prettie Girl's blogs (Alli, Charmaine, Christie, Joanne, Jillian, Julie Campbell, Kristine) today to see what scared them!

Only 1 more day until the release of 4 NEW Holiday stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps!! Check out the changing banner above this post and click over to the KSS blog for a few sneak peaks (in some older posts). These stamps are SOOOOOO GREAT - you're going to love them! Be watching SCS's banner ads for exciting news about them tomorrow and for your chance to get them first!

Have a Happy Pagen Holiday (just a little halloween humor for you!) everyone! :)
