You Used WHAT for background paper?!
Yay! A New image to play with!
This card is part of the DT inspiration for the newest challenge over at Stamping With The Dragon. Stop by Stamping With The Dragon and play along in our sketch challenge! You could win a great prize (four images of your choice!) from our sponsor, Lexi's Creations! This image is called Bathtime Scruffles.
Okay, so those of you who frequent my blog know that sometimes I like to use unusual things on my cards.... And this one is no exception. I realize some of you may think I'm strange, but thats okay by me. I never claimed to be normal.
Anyway, I happened to be in Target one day, browsing the $1 bins and came across this cute roll of white plastic with black paw prints all over it... And I thought, that would be so cute as a background for the card I am doing for our challenge featuring Lexi's Creations! After looking further at the package... I realized that this little roll of plastic was actually..... A roll of doggie poo poo bags! Of course, that didnt matter to me... It kind of made me want to use them even more.
I have to admit though, the black & white plastic was very hard to cut... I tried 3 paper cutters and neither of them liked this stuff! So I ended up having to hand cut it, which was no easy feat! The plastic keep slipping and sliding around.... Hence why the poo poo baggie background is a little crooked. But,i was determined to use it anyway and now here we are with this card done in a Twilight type color theme of Red, Black and White.
All other papers and the buttons are from my stash. I cut out the oval with the oval template and the Making Memories cutting system. The scalloped oval was cut with Nesties. I added faux stitching with a white pen from Inksentials. The border was punched with the Martha Stewart loop PATP set. I added glitter and sparkle to the bubbles in the image with a clear star jelly roll pen, for some Dazzle.
