After exploring and joining several groups on PCP I decided to enter in my first challenge.
Pink Cat Studio is having their 1st DT Challenge for 2009.
Here are the details:
Since Valentine's Day is coming up fast, I have a LOVE themed Challenge for you! But this isn't any old love themed challenge, this is a special one! My challenge for you is to create a card or project with at least four elements (you can have more if you would like), but four of your elements have to spell LOVE. For example, you can use Layers, Ovals, Violet, and Embellishments; see spells love. Or you could use Lily, Owls, Very pretty sequins and Emerald brads. Spells love. The possibilities are endless and yes, V can stand for very! Just remember that four of your elements must spell LOVE. Have Fun, can't wait to see what you come up with!
Date the challenge ends:Tuesday February 10th, 5 pm EST
A Pink Cat Studio stamp must be used as the main stamp on the card or project. It is okay to use stamps from other companies as well. Your entry can be a card or any type of 3D project.
To be eligible for the prize you must upload your card before the deadline to your PaperCraftPlanet gallery and include the tag PCSDTC1. You may enter only 1 project for this challenge.If you have questions about this challenge, please post them in this discussion thread.
On February 11th, a winner will be chosen by a random draw from all of the challenge participants. The winner will receive a grab bag of Pink Cat Studio stamps. The winner will be announced in the PCP challenge discussion thread and on the Pink Cat Studio blog. Some cards from the challenge will be displayed on the PCS blog and all entries will go into the PCP gallery.
I got creative using the elements of, "LOVE"
L - Long Walks L - Lots of Layers
O - Open Heart O - Olive Chalk
V - Very best friends V - Velvet (Doodlebug Crushed Velvet flock)
E - Essence of Rose E - Embossing
Lily & Billy stamps (Pink Cat Studio), Cherry Blossom (Rubber Stampede) Grass (Stampscapes), Ink (Versafine), Embossing (Clearsnap), Flock (Doodlebug), Markers (Copic), Chalk (Pebbles), Quartz Stardream Cardstock , Blue & Brown (DCWV), Rose scent (card-scents)
I "love" versafine because of its detail it produces however, it doesn't dry very well on stardream since its a coated cardstock so I found a way to make it work to my advantage, just sprinkle some clear embossing powder and Taa-Daa! Crisp detail with embossed detailing!
