It’s the first of the month, so you know what that means! It’s time for a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! The challenge is quite simple – all you have to do is create a card or project using three or more items from the itinerary for the week. Just add your direct link to your project below. You have until 14th May to enter. And I am super excited about this Itinerary. Why? Because I got to choose it! Here’s my list: Alison’s Itinerary 1. Use a creepy image (or make a cute image creepy!) 2. Use Black 3. Distressing 4. Sparkle 5. Mix patterns you normally wouldn’t have tried together 6. Words 7. Use ink on something other then a stamp 8. Punches 9. Stripes 10. No flowers. I think you’ll agree that this itinerary is very much my style! And I actually managed to use all 10 items on my list for my card! When I had first written up this itinerary, I knew immediately that I wanted to use this adorable (yet creepy!) image from Bugaboo. I just love her! She’s colored up with my pencils. And even thought the dominant colors in the card are red and green…I don’t think this card looks Christmas-y at all. I like the miss-matchy paper I sued too. I think that the wacky combination really works with this image. My paper is a mix of American Crafts, DCWV and Provo Craft. I used glitter from Studio 18, and Black Soot Distress Ink. I had such a fun time with this, I may need to create something else for it. 😉 Won’t you play along too? And, for more inspiration, you can visit the other DICC gals, listed in my sidebar. On a different topic…I am super excited to tell you…that I am the new Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hottie! I am taking over where the incredible Kas left off, brining you a new Blog Hop challenge every month! My first official blog hop challenge was posted today over in the Bombshell forum, and will be posted on the Bombshell Blog on Wednesday. I hope you will be able to play along with this challenge as well! I think you’ll agree…that this first hop is also going to be very much Alison-style! 😉 Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
