VCMP Part 2 and todays technique

I was stumped on one of the challenges from OWH's VCMP this weekend...Nancy wanted us to make a card inspired by a scrapbook sketch. http://brujahrose.blogspot.com/2013/05/vcmp-cards-out-of-scrapbooking-sketches.html
I figured out why this was hurting my brain..I scrap 12x12 and my cards are never squares! Duh! I pulled out some OLD sketch magazines and found a sketch for 8.5x11--now this made more sense to me!

Prima bling
MFT sentiment
the last of JilliBean Soup Dutch Mustard paper pad
digital image of bird colored with Copics

Our bonus challenge by Sandy was to use a googlie eye! So out came the Paper Smooches stamps! I also used spellbinder dies, copics, Queen and Co gems, sakura clear glaze and some very ancient HOTP paper from my stash! And our little alien pal is flying through space on an action wobble!

I really like when Nancy posts the tutorials over at OWH. Sometimes it is something new to me- and sometimes- like today- it is a technique I have not used for a long time so it gets my mojo flowing again!
This tutorial is outside the box....having part of your image come outside the die...like this fisherman's ears.

MFT stamps
Spellbinders dies
EK success border punch
Paper Loft...the end of the pad! boohoo
Queen and Co pearls

Well- I feel pretty caught up on my challenges! Yahhoooo!
