Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge 2

Woo Hoo! It's time for another Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge! I hope you are all ready to play along. Kelly Marie will be hosting this challenge, so here's the link to the challenge entry where you can post your entry to Mr. Linky >>>> HERE!

And now for Kelly's challenge:

I really gave myself a good laugh when I took the picture above. Something about the Amy Butler fabric and toilet paper... just funny. For this challenge Kelly's giving two stamp sets away to the big winner! But we will also be picking 5 Domestic Divas as well! There were just so many great cards the last go round, it just didn't seem fair not to feature more! And here's the big prize!


Kelly's challenge was just that for me - A CHALLENGE, but I loved it! It was so fun to really think how I could use toilet paper in a creative way! And let me tell you my creative way was MESSY! Here's my card:


Cardstock: Kraft, Bashful Blue(SU)
Stamps: Head in the Clouds (Sassafras Lass), Polka Dot Basics (PTI), and a random OLD stamp from Michaels dollar bin!
Ink: Chocolate Chip (SU), Cheastnut Roan (ColorBox); Black (Momento), VersaMark

Have you figured out how I made the clouds? Yep, that's just the dot for Polka Dot basics. I like how it kind of makes the clouds look "fluffy."

And that tree - yep completely toilet paper! I just dyed it all with my ink pads and used that same technique I use for my flowers. If you are interested in learning how to make my little flowers check out my video here.

And head to Kelly Marie's blog for all the details and Mr. Linky!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
