April's "Baby Got Back" Challenge**WIN PRIZES HERE!!!

Postby Cheryl67 on Thu Apr 01, 2010 10:15 pm

Hello, crafty friends! I'm Cheryl and I am the Guest Designer and challenge hostess for the month of April! I've got a special challenge lined up for this month and I hope everyone decides to play along. This month's challenge is called "Baby Got Back" and I am not referring to the Sir Mix-A-Lot song :D Instead, I'm referring to handmade "back"grounds!

I decided to pick a challenge that would be difficult for me (guess that's why they call it a "challenge"...heehee), so for the month of April I am going to forego the use of patterned scrapbooking papers in my Bombshell projects and "challenge" you to do the same. Anyone that takes even a quick peek at my cards will see this is going to test my limits of sanity as I have a crazy addiction for those scrumptious, glitzy, gorgeous, preprinted papers...oh sheesh, am I drooling?! BUT, instead of succumbing, let's make our own using bombshell images! Each Bombshell stamp set comes with a number of complimentary images that tie perfectly to the main image. These accessory stamps are perfect for creating backgrounds!

"BABY GOT BACK" CONTEST GUIDELINES: (CONTEST ENDS APR. 30, 2010)
The creation can be a card, layout or altered item, but must:

1. use a Bombshell Stamp somewhere
2. incorporate a handmade background using bombshell stamps (no preprinted patterned papers)
3. post a photo of your creation in this thread!

I'll be back in a couple of days with a sample ;)

I finally managed to thwart the Patterned Paper Demons and make this card ;D Let me tell you...it was not easy to have to forego "My Precious" (for all you Lord of the Rings fans!)...heehee! Visit my blog for details and more photos. I think I might even take a stab at another card sans patterned paper next week...we'll see :D
