Simply Challenged #1 - Betty
I know Sundays are supposed to be a day of rest, but today was a productive one for me. I had to make up for being completely out of commission for the past two days! Since I'm feeling much better I finally tackled the holiday decorations (yes, even the tree was still up!), did laundry, kept up with the toddler, AND made a card just because I wanted to!
Simply Betty Stamps announced their first challenge of the year and how could I not play along?!?! The challenge was to use one of their "Betty" images. I only have a couple so I was limited as to what direction I could go with my card... Well, it IS Betty and it IS me so the fact that I've made my first Halloween card of 2012 is really not that hard to comprehend! lol I used the digi version of Witchy Boo Betty paired with some Cloud 9 paper I purchased on clearance a while back. My embellishments are sort of a hodge podge of what I had easy access to - some flowers, a Tim Holtz metal corner, my trusty Martha Stewart Drippy Goo punch, and a glittered branch fragment, broken off from a discarded birthday party centerpiece. The sketch is from Eat, Sleep, Stamp (#156).
Markers used: Copics (E11, E21, E00, R20, W6, W8, W10, YG95, YG97, Y32, Y35, Y38, E25, E31, E33, V15, V17) and Prismacolor Art Markers (153, 154).
I'd also like to enter my card in the following challenges:
- 2 Sisters Challenge: #74 - Use Metal
- Simply Create Too: #4 - Layers, Layers, and More Layers
Thanks for stopping by! If you're lucky enough to have a long weekend, enjoy your extra day off!
