Double Trouble Challenge#101 is open for your paper crafting pleasure. As usual, we have three "Things":
1. Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker is requiring that we use three patterned papers on our projects. You will receive one chance in our random drawing if you meet this requirement. Using our partner's sketch is optional but will qualify you for another chance.
2. Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare suggests you link your card to Try Stampin' on Tuesday #539 if you have used their sketch. TSOT also has an option to create a Winter Wonder Theme. Linking your card with our partner will earn another chance at our random drawing.
3. Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister is asking for at least one penguin with your project. This will give you one more chance in our random drawing.
First, I stamped, colored, and fussy-cut four penguin images along with two hats and a scarf. The TSOT sketch was just right for three patterned papers so I cut three panels. The large pink foiled snowflake panel was added to a black card base and serves as a background. Next, I selected papers from a pad of beach paper. One pattern was a streaked design of white and aqua that reminded me of glacial ice. The other was a pattern of dunes resembling snowdrifts. I continued to add the elements, sometimes with foam tape, onto the black card base.
In keeping with the sketch, a strip of silver glimmer paper was added along with the stamped sentiment. The holographic snowflakes finished the design. The inside was lined with white cardstock and decorated with snowflakes plus the fourth penguin wearing a hat.
I also submitted my card at Critter Crazy Challenge #58. This is a monthly challenge where "Anything Goes" as long as you feature a critter.
DTC #101 began on Monday, January 16 and TSOT #539 begins on Tuesday, January 17. Both challenges will close on Sunday, January 30. Be sure to check out the guidelines at both blogs and join us for some crafting fun.
