OK- so my friends tell me I am fun-- OK- I tell me I am funny- but shockingly-I just won the Life of the Party again at Drunken Stampers! This is amazing to me- I was not thrilled with my card- I liked it- but did not even consider it could be a challenge winner! And a little ironic that my 2 challenge wins- EVER- have been with the Drunken Stampers...I do not drink! LOL I worked in a detox for many years and over time, the smell of alcohol turned my stomach...plus as I tried over the years to lose weight, alcohol seemed like a waste of calories! I really like the Drunken Stampers site and the themes of the challenges and everyone is so nice...like the OWH folks! Go check them out: drunkenstampers.wordpress.com. This is the card that garnered me my recent win:
The oval has a layer of embossed music notes on a piece of plastic!
And this week over at OWH our midweek throwdown challenge is a color challenge! We are to use blue and green- and as an extra dare- add in some orange!
My orange ended up taking center stage! The stamps are Paper Smooches, the orange paper is Basic Gray and the rest of the papers are DCWV. I got 2 6x6 stacks of DCVW papers and I have been using them alot! The papers are thin-but they are good for matting and layering-and I love the varierty of the patterns in each color family. The ribbon is from my stash...a piece in a baggie with other pieces....not good with ribbon manufacturers! I added some glitter pen on the stars- but then as always, I cover my glitter pen with the clear glaze pen. I love this pen- it seals in the glitter, gives a nice glossy finish and dries quickly. I also put some on the eyes. I wish I could get it in the photograph... you are just gonna have to trust me- it adds a nice finishing touch!
Take care and craft on,
