INF14 Starting Point - WINNER ANNOUNCED
« on: October 03, 2014, 08:59:51 PM »
If you are anything like me, you start a project with the stamp or stamps and work from there.  And usually the last thing I pick out are the embellishments.  So for this challenge, I want you to start with the embellishments. 

Requirements: Pick at least two different embellishments and use them as the inspiration for your project.  Two buttons do not count as your two different embellishments, but a button and ribbon will count, and you of course can use two buttons on your project as long as you have a third embellishment that is different.

Be sure to include SPINF14 as a keyword when you post your project to the gallery.  And link your project to this thread.

Combining challenges: But of course.

Deadline: You have until midnight your local time on Sunday Oct. 12 to post your project.

I think that covers it.  But feel free to ask any questions here.

Sample
   
ETA:  The project can be anything - card, ATC, scrapbook page, whatever.  And I forgot to mention that there will be a RAK for a randomly selected winner.

Well, this is the challenge for me, because I usually start with my stamp and then barely add any embellishments, if any, to my projects.  What a great challenge, I look forward to trying it!

Thanks for hosting!

Yep!  This is gonna be a challenge!  But I have an idea ...
Thanks Sarah, I need a push to use some embellishments.  I forget about them most of the time!

Yeah, I have way too many embellishments going unused.  And I figured I probably wasn't the only one.

Well I actually did use the gold buckle that was laying on my desk.  I found a piece of ribbon and then found paper to match.  Then I found a flower stamp and the square for behind it.  I found some itty bitty flowers and metal jewels to go on the bottom of the ribbon.  I don't know it just seems backwards to me to start with the buckle and work around it.  Thank you Craft Nerd for making me look at projects in a different way.  The buckle and ribbon is in the picture at the bottom of this post.

Sadie - lovely card.  I'm glad my challenge got you thinking about a project in a different way.  And I think I may have to add Inktense pencils to my wish list. I really like the results you got using them to color the flower.

Thanks for playing.

Sadie, did you stamp first and then color with inktense, or did you color on the stamp with the pencils, add water and stamp?.  I have seen people do that with the blocks, but hadn't thought to try with my pencils.

I stamped with memento morocco ink which matches the Inktense color I used really well.  I could have colored the paper first and then stamped because I cut it out anyway.  I never thought of doing it that way.

Lots of fun entries for this!

I had s finished card but when I snapped a pic of my card the pp was extremely crooked >:(. It's very noticeable in pics so I carefully ripped it off and adhered it to another base. I will upload tonight.

Isn't that funny how that happens, that has happened to me too.

I still need to choose some embellies. I think I may go with christmas ones since I have quite a few of those.
