It’s time to try a challenge

It’s been a really long time since I’ve played along with any of the challenges that are out there.  Every day there are demos from all over the world doing various challenges.  I used to play along with a few but haven’t really done it in a long time.  Some of my friends have started a new challenge group and I finally decided to play along with one.  It’s and interesting one – not the normal challenge that most sites have.  This one limits you to only certain supplies and you can’t go outside of that – there is a “basket” that you have to use a certain number of items from and then a “pantry” that you can pull from if you need to.


This basket of supplies was really not what I would normally pull from – the colors are not the norm for me.  But hey it was a challenge and I was up for it.  I did begin to realize that what I was seeing is that we were limited to Whisper White card stock  (from the pantry) – well gold foil was an option too but I didn’t use any.  Here is the basket of supplies:

td01 basketWe had to use at least 4 – I used the Hello You Thinlits, Work of Art stamp set and the Blushing Bride and Blackberry Bliss ink.

TGIFCTD01-card-1It turned out to be a very clean card – with all that white.  I cut the “thanks” from the Hello You thinlits and then cut off the ‘s’.  I actually cut two of them.  One I placed on the card from and then stamped over it with the big swoosh from Work of Art and the Blushing Bride ink – it left a white “frame” around where the word was.  I took that one off and used the second one and stamped it with the other swoosh and Blackberry Bliss ink – I covered almost all of it but if you look really close there are tiny white spots still visible.  I cut thin slivers of dimensionals (adhesive is in the pantry) to put on the back and adhere it into the “framed” space.  I decided to tie a little piece of White Bakers Twine (also from the pantry) on my word.  I stamped the “you” from Work of Art and then layered the white piece on a Whisper White card base.  That was all of it.
