Ike's World Challenges DT and Junk Funk S&S May Challenge

Amazing inspiration done by the Ike's World Challenges are headed your way!  A new challenge has started and for the next two weeks you have a chance to win when you enter your project inspired by either this picture or color combo.

Challenge #17 - Photo Inspiration

We love to see your entries!  In order to be eligiable you must use an image created by Ike.  Either past freebies, other companies, or from Ike's Art, as long as it is by Ike.

I will also be entering my card into the May 2014 Junk Funk Challenge over at the Smeared and Smudged Forum.  You must use a Paper Towel somehow in your project.

I got this image as a freebie.  One of my favorite books is It by Steven King.  I just finished reading the book, so it was a given that I was inspired to use this image.  Wanted to give a bit of the vintage feel and these colors were perfect.

Drain full of Deets

Image was printed onto Very Vanilla card stock.
Colors used were markers, Blendibilities (new alcohol markers by SU!), Blender Pen, and White Chalk Marker.
Crystal Effects on eye, nose, and tongue.
Ranger Distressed Crackle Paint Linen on teeth.
Fussy cut and sponged.  Used dimensionals to adhere to card front.



Inked a paper towel with Hello Honey ink.  Sprayed with water. Pressed my Whisper White cards stock onto paper towel to pick up the pattern and color for the textured background.
Inked balloon stamp from Your Amazing stamp set and covered card stock.
Wrote words with Black jounaling pen, "We all float down here"
Finger and Hello Honey ink to high light the words.
Sponged and layered onto card front.
All materials used are current Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.
