More Simply Betty!

It's that time again... Simply Betty Stamps blog has got a new challenge for the month!  Yeah, you have a whole month to come up with a card for a chance to be a Guest Designer!  And as a Guest Designer, you'll be able to get your grubby mitts on new release images before anyone else... for free... that's what I'm talkin'bout :)

Let me start by saying this:  they don't call them CHALLENGES for nothing.  Yikes.  I'm not really a "bright and colorful" kinda girl :)  Especially not primary colors... those really scare me... and NOT in a good way :)  So, I had to just suck it up and give it a shot... and this is what I came up with.


I think it works pretty good, right?  I mean, I still had to get a little grungy with it... and maybe I over-did it a bit, but I thought I needed to tone it down a notch :)  I'm VERY happy with how Christian turned out!  The photos don't show it well, but the coloring worked out on this one :)


Rubber stamp:  sentiment (retired TAC)
Paper:  Bazzill, Neenah & misc. cardstocks
Ink:  Noir Palette
Other:  Copic markers, Scor-Bug, EK Success edger punch, Tim Holtz edge die, We R MM eyelets

Christian can also be purchased in cling mounted scroll cut rubber form... and right now he is only $6.75 instead of $9!!  Can't beat that.


So, if you are up for a challenge, go check out the SBS blog for all of the details.  OH!  AND Betty is starting up a new challenge blog starting September 15th and she has a DT call going on right now!!!  So be sure to go HERE for those details!!
