Well, we did it! I'd say VSN was a success, I've just got to wait until 4PMest, before I can start to judge those in my category. My challenge was chipboard buttons. I wanted to have a challenge that hadn't been done before, that used something trendy, and that hopefully showed people are to make the most of their resources. Why buy an embellishment, if you can make one, right!
Anyway, I ended up doing 11/14 (there were 15, but I couldn't participate in my own!). Here's a few of my favorites that I made. One of the challenges was to use candy as your inspiration. I stamped the 'sweet' image, then wrapped it in blue cellophane. I really like how this turned out. I think I will definitely make "card candy" like this again.
I made this one this morning. It's a bit crazy with the shimmer and sparkle, but it was lots of fun to make. I mixed Lumiere and Pearl Ex, and stamped my images with those. Then I cut them all out, added some glitter and made a pretty bouquet. This was was for the Pearls & Diamonds challenge, so that's why I used so many sparkly mediums.
