IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE

MERRY CREEPMAS!
SPONSOR:  Freebie over at IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE


Oh boy this was tough.  I made a first run on this project that was ummmmm very "to be censored" for most audiences because it was just a bit too HERRODish. But artistic license, it is on MY BLOG only, not the IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE BLOG.  

So I took another run at it, still sitting on the HERROD story, but not being quite as graphic as the story insists.

I hope the irony of the "dark art" does not get wasted for most of you!  If so, my intention is NOT to offend!!!

Pop on over to IWC to see what the other Gals have done and to pick up Ike's Freebie!

Best,
Samara

















BE CAUTIONED - THIS IS "DARK ART" THAT IS BASED ON THE IRONY OF THE HERROD STORY 










AND THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT MESSAGE
FOR ALL TO REMEMBER...


SANTA'S COMING TO TOWN ALL GLITTERED UP!

ONE STITCH AT A TIME

THE CHALLENGE IS TO USE LACE THIS TIME
(I DID NOT PARTICIPATE - BUT DID SOMETHING ELSE!!!)


where to find this art?
 Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet


My neighbourhood is getting more glorious by the day!  Lights, blown up displays, music displays that are timed to lights and floats going on and off and a Merry Merry all around me.  This was a great time for me to be asked by ALI, a fantastic artiste from Stitchy's to showcase a humourous Santa! 

My Teamies have done a wonderful job of their LACE theme at OSAAT each choosing a different way to decorate and embellish in beautiful ways.  You have to pop over and check them all out...great inspiration too.

So get your Santa Hat on, your lacey hat on, or twinkle bits of glitter in your hair cuz this is the time of year to get your glitter on....and to show us whatcha got!  The Prize from the wonderful Stitchy for the LACE CHALLENGE is always worth your hard work...the pack is varied and great.

And for my art, I'd like to thank ALI from ALIPEEPS for entrusting me with her work.  I loved doing two different pieces for her.  I will post the next one tomorrow.  

Check ALI out over at STICHY BEAR DIGITAL OUTLET!

IKE'S WORLD CHALLENGE - RAINING CATS AND DOGS

SECOND WEEK
RAINING CATS AND DOGS

For today's challenge I decided to combine fabric and Ike's wonderful Image once again.

I sewed up a pillow for the first image, using canvas and stuffing with batton.  For the second image, I used batton but quilted rather than made a pillow, and got some cat fabric I loved and found rather sexy mexy, like the image Ike sketched up.

I hope you like what I came up with - hop over to Ike's Store and enter Ike's World Challenge.  See you there!

This challenge was lots of fun.

I combined my love of sewing with my love of paper art, using Ike's fabulous Pet Shop Collection (the Parrot) and also some wonderful Batik Fabric I had.

After Paper Piecing the Parrot together, I heat set it onto the Fabric and then deco stitched around him and also around some of the lines on the Batik.

Now is your turn.


Show us whatcha Got.
(remember to use Ike's art tho')

The FREE DIGI is AWESOME!!!!
YOU WILL LOVE IT.

    FITZTOWN CHALLENGE BLOG - GLITZ AND GLAMOUR



    This was NOT hard to compile.  FITZTOWN images make it a breeze to create art. Especially their Cameo and Fae series (for me.)  This particular image so reminded me of Charlize Theron that I couldn't get over it - I had to chose it.  I hope you will find an image you love as much as I love the CAMEO and FAE series at FITZTOWN STORE.

    For this card, I really went GLITZ, using Transparency Paper on top of regular but sparkly card stock from Stampin Up. I think it is properly called Glimmer Paper or Shimmer Paper - I'm sure a SU rep can correct me.  And I got out all the embellies I had and went to town.

    Please go over to our challenge blog, go GLITZY and GLAMOURY and let's see whatcha got. Surely you have some GLITZ.  Let it be your makeup, your jewelry, your embellies, your frames, your material or threads, your washi that sparkles, your stamps that are embossed with gold or silver - your stickes or glitter - anything that you consider GLITZ!

    Check out the STORE, and come on over to see the Designer's and how they are interpretted the challenge.  This is always fun for me because we are always so different!

    And don't forget, we have a FACEBOOK PAGE!

    I hope you like my card.  Transparency cards are SO fun - either through the printer or not.
