Follow The Recipe #19

One of my favorite challenges kicks off a new one today (alternating Sundays)'s "Follow The Recipe" at Linda McClain's Catered Crop. Talk about one very talented lady.. sheesh!!

This week, after a nation-wide vote to break a tie, the winning entry selected was created by Dana. Using a bit of wizardry magic, here's the recipe that Dana used to create her lovely card. The items in red are the ingredients I picked from Dana's elements to create my own card with a vintage and masculine twist.

- Colors – jewel tones of pink, violet and blue, gold/yellow and brown
- Stamps and Stickers – gears or clock works, wizards and magic, butterflies, text/script, sentiment
- Color Mediums – stamping/distress ink, markers/Copics (to tint the ribbon), acrylic paint
- Embellishments – ribbon, brads, tags, polymer clay, glitter/Stickles
- Techniques – mixed-media, collage, use and/or layer digital stamps, edge the card with paint
- Theme – just because, Halloween, magic

I added some UTEE to the postmark, some chipboard, twine, lots of pop-dots, and changed my colors to black, tan, kraft and cream papers. That's the beauty of this challenge. You get to use the elements you want and then add your own.

Our sponsor this week is Stampee Crafts One lucky winner will get to pick 4 foils and also get free bonding powder. Turns out, it's a great sponsor for this week's challenge.

I'm also entering this in these challenges...
