The wonderful Linda over at the Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring this even numbered challenge with a $25.00 shopping spree at her site. This prize will be awarded to one lucky randomly chosen winner! Tim and Mario have another fabulous prize package awaiting the winner of the challenge as chosen by the Curiosity Crew. Good luck to everyone!
Here is my project for this challenge:
I have used B Line Designs images on my card. I knew I wanted to do something with their new Beehives stamp, so I checked out my stash of fabulous Ranger alcohol inks and found that I had Lemonade, Butterscotch and Honeycomb inks. What better choices to go with a beehive! Now I can't tell you how I achieved this effect - you'll have to turn to page 57 of the book to find out!
Sadly, I was so excited putting together this project that I forgot to take step-by-step photos! I know, I'm, bad!!!! However, I think you can get the idea after studying the technique.
I started out with a larger piece of glossy card stock and, after completing the technique, I stamped the Beehives and the Honeycomb from the Honeycomb/Wire duo onto the card. I then trimmed off some of the card at the top and bottom and created strips which I backed with black card stock. I started by adhering two thin strips to the sides of the card. I then added two slightly wider strips to the top and bottom areas of the card.
I knew I wanted to add some bees as well as the round "Don't Worry -Be Happy" image from the Celebrate Dreams cube, so I repeated the Alcohol Ombre technique on a small piece of glossy card stock and stamped the image four times. I used the entire image for the top of the card and cut just the bees out to add to the bottom strip. I was in fussy-cutting heaven! The image at the top was backed with a slightly larger piece of black card stock and the bees were attached to the bottom strip! Easy! I love the effect!
Okay, let's see what you all come up with for your projects! Head on over to the wonderful Linda Ledbetter's site for all the rules on how to participate. We know we will see some beautiful projects and are sooooo looking forward to it! You guys blow us away with your talent!
