Peachy Keen Challenge #35

Good morning!  I sure hope you're ready for a challenge, because we've got a doozy of one for you this week over at the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge Blog.  Angelica has completely outdone herself this time by throwing us a sketch challenge with a color challenge twist.  Check this out...



So, whatdaya think?  Is that a challenge or what?  Put your thinking caps on, friends, and  head to that crafty space for some paper crafting fun, and be sure to upload your creation to the PKS Challenge Blog using Mr. Linky, because this time the winner will be judged, and that winner will receive a $30.00 gift certificate from Peachy Keen Stamps!  Just a little more motivation to get that creativity flowing for you!  :-)

Here is my card for this challenge.  I used PK#617 Spider on Freaked Ghost  from Peachy Keen Stamps for this card, and colored the image with my Copic markers.  The very busy patterned paper is from Imaginisce's Hallowhimsy-Eat Drink and Be Scary line of paper.  There's sure a lot going on with it, but I love that it can be cut apart and different parts of the paper used in different places on the card, which is exactly what I did.
There was very little embellishment needed for this one, so I stopped at the little glittery buttons.  I used the out of the box technique when I cut this adorable little ghost out with my circle Nestabilities.  That pretty much does it for this card.  I hope you enjoy, and can find time to play along with our challenge, because I love seeing what you're doing with your Peachy Keen Stamps.  Angelica's got some great tips on the challenge blog for photographing your work, and making blog commenting easy peasy, so be sure and check those out, too.  As always, our designers have a treat in store for you, so be sure to check out all their inspiring creations while you're at the PKS Challenge Blog, AND we have a special treat this week by having Kim from Paper Punch Addiction  guest designing with us!  Her paper punched creations will knock your socks off!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I wish you a blessed day filled with everything you love and especially happy stamping!

Love ya,

Angelica said...

Lorie, you did amazing as always on this one. I especially liked that you used all that pattern paper and showed us how to break it up. I always, always get stuck on layering solid on top of solid, afraid of too much "Busy-ness" lol but this definitely showed me a new direction to try! Big hugs, Angelica
