First up, I have a Your Next Stamp card:
In case you missed it, Your Next Stamp is sponsoring this week's challenge over at The Pink Elephant, which is a recipe challenge: Use something with dots, a punch, and a tag. There's still time to play and two stamp sets up for grabs!!
I used Fairy Fhiona and part of a sentiment from the Happy Days Mermaid set. I stamped Fhiona twice on white cardstock, once on the patterned paper, and once on plain printer paper. I used the printer paper version as a pattern to cut out the wings from Doodlebug sugar coated cardstock (I tried stamping directly on the cardstock but the black lines just didn't look nice at all). I used thick foam tape beneath the wings, curling them slightly so they wouldn't just sit flat. I added an extra set of arms over her pieced dress and an extra head for even more dimension. Here you can see all the layers:
I also threw in some other challenges for good measure:
- Get Sketchy - sketch
- 3 Clovers - use pink
- Charisma Cardz - decoupage (I believe they want paper tole or 3D layering)
- Crazy 4 Challenges - sewing
Also, Karen is giving everyone 10% off their order for today only!! The offer is good until 12 midnight EST. Have fun shopping!
I'm glad you're still with me! You can also enter to win some candy over at the La-La Land Crafts blog! Be sure to check it out!
And last, but not least, I wanted to remind you that the Softpencil challenges start today over at Paper Craft Planet. We hope you'll play along!
Whew! Thanks for getting through this looooong post!! Enjoy all the rest of the WCMD activities!
