Scrapping4fun Challenges--Challenge Four

SO SORRY this is a late post!!!  Things got SUPER crazy for me last week as I got ready to go to the CK Convention in Hot Springs with my friend Barbara, and I just didn't get time to post the new challenge.  Challenge Four at Scrapping4fun Challenges is an "off the page" challenge--no layouts, no cards.  You can make anything for this challenge EXCEPT a layout or card, and you have to use a minimum of two items from this list on your project:  banner, flowers, brads, eyelets, doilies, feathers, stamp, chipboard, ribbon, washi tape.

My creation for this challenge is a box project from a Close To My Heart workshop about a year ago that I just never had the chance to put together:

I ended up using four items off the list--flowers, ribbon (burlap), chipboard, and stamp.  The deadline for linking up your project on the Scrapping4fun Challenges blog is Thursday, 24 October, at 23:59 European time.  If you're not sure about the time difference, there's a clock with European time on the challenge blog.  The prize for this challenge is a pack of Christmas scrapbook paper from Crafti.  Good luck, and happy scrapping!

Through the Purple Haze challenge--Anything Goes with IndigoBlu

It's time for another challenge at Through the Purple Haze!  I hope everyone had a great weekend and was able to get some crafty time in.  This week's challenge is Anything Goes with IndigoBlu.  Don't worry if you don't own any IndigoBlu stamps.  You can still enter the Anything Goes challenge and be eligible for a second prize.

IndigoBlu was nice enough to provide everyone on the DT with an IndigoBlu stamp, and I was given Blazing Poppies.

I went for the CAS look and think it turned out quite lovely.  I used colored pencils to color my image, and I added a little glitter to the center of the poppies, the butterfly, and some of the honeycombs.  I'll be putting this in the mail to my sister-in-law this week for her birthday.  I hope she likes it!

You've got one week to get your IndigoBlu creation linked up on the Through the Purple Haze challenge blog.  IndigoBlu will be giving away a stamp set to the winner of this week's challenge.  Good luck, and happy scrapping!
