Bedtime Stories


Hey!  I'm back with my second creation as a Guest Designer for Simply Challenged Challenges and Simply B Stamps!  The challenge this fortnight is "Create Your Own Background".  That means create a background for your project using stencils, stamps (no digis), sprays, inks, and the like.  No embossing folders are allowed either.

I was given the adorable Rio and Toots Bedtime Stories to work with so I decided to create a book cover card.  I used the Tim Holtz Book Cover stamp and Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Old Paper.  My image is colored with Copics and fussy cut.  I added some "hinges" made with one of the Spellbinders Fancy Tags dies/  I used more Tim Holtz products with the Ornate Plate and Corners.



I have to admit that  I seriously stressed out this project and put it off until the very last minute.  It's funny how when I finally sat down to work on it, I had a flash of inspiration and I must say I'm pretty pleased with the results!  I want to thank the lovely ladies at Simply Challenged Challenges for having me this month and special thanks to Miss Boo for sharing her fabulous images!  I do love SBS!!!

Markers used: Copics (E00, E11, E21, E31, E70, E74, YG91, YG93, YG95, N0, N2. N4, N6, N8).

Hi, Regan! Your background is fantabulous! I love the contrast between your classic, rather formal background and your very modern image. Great coloring and wonderful composition! Thanks for slipping this under our door here at 613 Avenue Create!
