Every week Paper Makeup Stamps hosts a fun challenge issued by one of the design team where you can win some free PMS rubber.
This week was my week to issue the challenge and since I just had my 40th birthday, I decided to issue a challenge based around the number "40".
For this challenge, you can use any embellishment that you want, but they must be used in increments of 4 (i.e. you use one brad, then your project needs to have 4 brads on it; you use one ribbon, there needs to be 4 ribbons on there.) The second part is that your main focal piece (usually your stamped part) must be in a circle for the "0" part of the challenge...obviously ovals are acceptable too. ;o)
And here is my card that I created for the challenge using Tweet Things...
My obvious embellishments are the buttons which as you can see, I included 4 of, but there are also some not so obvious embellishments that are also in increments of 4...notice the borders here. There are 4 layers of punched borders in there (making good use of all my new punches that I bought on my birthday.)
*Paper Makeup Stamps Tweet Things
*October Afternoon Christmas collection (Be Jolly...is that right?)
*Martha Stewart doily tag
*Marvy Uchida circle punches
*Martha Stewart border punches (3 fancy ones)
*Fiskars border punch (plain scallop)
*StazOn jet black inkpad
There are also 4 layers of circles in my main image...the kraft punch, one of martha stewarts doily tags, the red layer, then the brown layer.
Ready to play along???
