NEW! Ike's World Challenges

Eeek!!  I thought I had until tomorrow to get this in, but now I am down to 1 hour and 20 minutes!!  EEST time zone is not the same as EST zone.  So be aware and make sure you check your link times for those deadlines on any challenge.

Now, a wonderful new challenge blog has just been created.  Ike's World Challenges Blog is another great way to challenge yourself, see what others are creating, get more inspiration, and just have a great time getting crafty.

Ike also has a shop called Ike's Art.  Click on the link to find great artistic digital images.  There are quite a few so take some time and enjoy browsing.  There is a wide variety for everyone.

On to the First Ike's World Challenge!  We were able to download a FREE digital image for the use of this first challenge.  The image is called 'Fashionista'.  With this image or any of Ike's other images, we played a little Tic Tac Toe.  
I chose to use the Tag, Doily, and Ribbon column.  
My niece, who is 6, has some of the best outfits and is quite sassy herself.  I am going to print out small pictures of her in her stunning outfits.  The tags will be photo mats as well as the open areas on the page.  

The Do's and Don'ts
Page is 8" x 8" on Crushed Curry card stock.
Border is from Delicious Doodles called Gargoyle Frame.  I printed onto copy paper and fussy cut.  Mini Silver Brads were used on eyes and doily.
Crushed Curry marker is on frame, boots, main image eyes, and letters in saying.
Background pattern paper is from stash and is by Bo Bunny.
I used Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon on each side.  Words are mounted on Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon.
Saying is from Dylusions, a set called Say It How It Is.
Doily is from Stampin' Up! and I pressed the Crushed Curry ink pad onto to help coordinate.  Edges are gone over with Soft Suede ink.
Saying is stamped with Black Staze On.
Main image is colored in with inks and Blender Pen.
Her hair, vest, and bottom of boots have White Enamel Accents by Ranger.
