Golly, Dash...Look!

Welcome to a new Challenge week over at Loves Rubberstamps!!!  This week our Challenge is, "Out of the Box."   Which you can find the tutorial HERE or HERE.  (Thanks for those links Laura!)  I remember the first time I saw this technique and I so wanted to try it out right away!  I went to these same sites and learned how to cut around to make just part of my image poke out of the die.  I must confess though, this particular image is already drawn that way, lol.   I promise I will make up for that on my Friday Inspiration post though, lol. 

And speaking of this Image!  I would like to thank Kenny K for providing our design team with their fabulous images this week for our designs.  I must confess, I am a digi image dummy, but with a little help from my fellow design team members, and my Dear Husband Joe, I was able to maneuver the cyber space in the box and not only print this, but size it down to the size I wanted!  Whoot.  It's not as hard as I thought.  Did anyone out there know you have to Open a zip folder? lol.   See, the things I've learned since being on this wonderful design team!  Still not convinced?  It's okay, they come in rubber too and Laura has a wonderful selection of Kenny K designed stamps in her store....go check them out!  I personally am loving this Retro image called "What If?"   Want more good news?  Kenny K is our sponsor this week, so that means in addition to the wonderful store voucher prize, there is also some sweet Kenny K to win!  Whoo Hoo!!! 

So for this card, I used my Sasparilla designer paper from October Afternoon.  The animated background is so perfect with her.  I love the sentiment bubble built into the paper, lol.  Cracks me up.  I colored her with my Copics: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E93, B99, B97, B95, B91, Y18, Y17, Y15, Y13, R29, R24, E57, E55, E53, E51.  Fussy cut her out, cut out a red circle, square, and scalloped square dies.  And added some brads. 

I cannot wait to see what you make this week!!!
