Wild Thing - Challenges by AR Blog Hop and Contest

Wild Thing...You make my heart sing, you make everything groovy!

Welcome to the Challenges by AR Blog Hop and monthly contest, I hope your ready to get inspired in 3D!  Adela has put together a talented bunch of designers to challenge you each month with a different theme using her wonderful templates/cut files.  This month is the Grand Opening of the Challenge Blog, and to celebrate, during the week of July 7-14, we will be choosing one random winner EVERY DAY from the comments left on the challenge blog to win a not yet released template from Creations by AR.

This month, Magdalena is your hostess, and she is challenging you to take a Walk on the Wild Side.  Use Wild Prints to create your project, then link in at the Challenges by AR Blog. You'll earn a $1.00 gift certificate towards any purchase at the Shop for every project you submit for the challenge!  How cool is that!  For full challenge details, click here.

I thought about creating my own Wild Print with stamps, but then my wild side turned to the fun Bo Bunny Zoology line.  My family loves the outdoors and this paper reminds me of camouflage.  I used the Haute Tote Template (scoring pieces with the Scor-Pal) , adding a blossom I created using Black Card Stock, Spellbinders Blossom 3  and Foliage Dies, adding Distress Stickles to highlight.

The Black card stock on the purse bottom and trim are both embossed with a Texture Fades Folder, then highlighted with Distress Stickles.  I also made a coordinating card using the Window Dressing Cut File.  I accented the dress with the Sash, small Blossom (Spellbinders Blossom 3 cut from pattern paper), and some Enamel Accents.  The Kraft panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug Flourished Frame Folder, highlighted and accented with Enamel Accents.  The sentiment from Stampotique is stamped in Black Archival.

Stamps - Stampotique
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Chocolate, Artichoke
Card Stock - Black, Kraft, Artichoke
