I love when challenges force me to do things that I wouldn't normally do, or things that I've forgotten to do. Although, I guess that's what makes a challenge, a challenge! The latest challenge on the DRS Designs blog challenges you to use knots. Below is the card I created for this challenge, and it allowed me to look at my embellishments and use a spiral clip to add the knot to my card front. I haven't use spiral clips in forever! DRS Designs is also the current sponsor over at the Loves To Scrap Challenge Blog. I am entering this card into their "Anything Goes Challenge"[ as well. Interested in playing along in their challenge? You could win a $10 store voucher to get free stamps from DRS Designs online catalog.
I am still playing around with the new Halloween stamps I received from DRS Designs. I used the Silhouette Spooky Village (141H) as my focal image and distressed the edges with black ink to give it a spooky feel. I used Copic Markers to fill in the windows and color the moon. The Accent Bats (517A) were stamped to make my own pattern paper on one of the vertical panels, and the Large Original Plaid Maker (P641) was used to create the other one. The Halloween Arc (043E) was stamped so that it curved around the image in the background.
I hope you'll take this opportunity to check out both of these challenges and enter them if you're able for a chance to win free stamps from DRS Designs!
Thanks for stopping by!
