Triple Play

Hi All! Happy Friday!

There's a new challenge over on STAMP SOMETHING and this week we are going for "Triple Plays!" We want to see what you can do with 3 layers, 3 colors, and 3 embellishments!

Show us your best work and you may find yourself up for a chance as guest designer in August! That's right, we're looking for 5 more entries to put to a viewer vote. The winner will go up against the viewer's choice from last week's "Dazzle Us" challenge. Speaking of the dazzle us challenge, head on over and vote for your top choice now!

This is my take on the "Triple Play" challenge. I went with a Bella image, I've had this one for a while now and haven't had any reason to use her, so what better excuse than for a challenge! I'm not sure what the exact name of this bella is, but I'm calling her Glitzy-Bella!

The 3 colors I choose to use are Basic Black, Whisper White, and Cool Caribbean. This printed paper was from an old Simply Scrappin' Kit that is now retired. I love how the blue pops against the black. The image has been stamped in Staz-On ink and colored with re-inkers and an aquapainter.

My 3 embellishments are Iridescent Ice EP on the dress, rhinestone brads on the dress and the flowers, and lastly the white fabric flowers. The rhinestones on the dress have been popped out of the brad and adhered with crystal effects.

This blurry photo, sorry about that, shows more of the shimmer on her dress from the Iridescent Ice EP.

Thanks for taking a look today! Hop on over to STAMP SOMETHING and check out the fabulous design team samples. I hope you'll find some time to stamp something today too! Have a super weekend, happy stamping!! :)
