Squigglefly Challenge #123 - SFC123 - NO PATTERNED PAPER!

Happy Monday and welcome to this week's Squigglefly Challenge.

Before I tell you about this week's challenge, let me give a big thanks and congratulations to the winner of last week's Tickle My Fancy challenge, Linda Weber! Linda's Halloween card featured Littlest Witch and Ghost and a comical sentiment. Linda,
contact Holly for your image.
Thanks for joining the challenge!

To win you must use a Squigglefly image.
Freebies are available on the Squigglefly website.

Thanks to everyone who participated last week's challenge
(but we would love to see even more players)!
We can't wait to see your projects for this week!

Here's this week's challenge:

Make a creation without using any patterned/ designer paper
This week's samples were created by my team, Heather's Headliners. I'm a little biased but I thought the team had some very creative was to color and embellish images.

Stephanie used "Autumn Wind" from new Squigglefly artist Gemma Mortlock. Stephanie kept it clean and simple with a single layer card enhanced with score lines. The image is colored with colored pencil. Don't you love how the eyes pop?

Holley used "Postulation" drawn by company co-owner Chesney Young. Holley used repeated scallops and some buttons with a sideways sentiment. Nice card, it made me think! LOL

Terri used "Happy Tweetmas!" by artist Diane Carubia. Terri created an embossed background and lightly sanded it to highlight the embossing. Those diecut bells are really cool too.

Pat used "Fall Fairy" by new Squigglefly artist, Rachel Goble. Pat used several color blocks, metallic leaves and flourish diecuts. What a great sentiment from Trader Joe's (a natural foods supermarket). Pat and her husband recently celebrated their 36th wedding anniversary- congratulations!

Debbie used "Angel with Bouquet" by artist Inger Harding. Debbie used Stickles glitter glue for glitz and white flocking for the coat collar. Don't you like the glow around the angel?

Tammy used "Autumn Wind" by new Squigglefly artist, Gemma Mortlock. I was so fascinated by Tammy's card that I asked her how she made it. Tammy used metallic paint to stamp the swirls and after it dried she shaded the background with Distress Ink. Then she printed the digital image on the decorated cardstock and then "watercolored" the image with Distress Ink. Great mystical/ dreamlike quality, Tammy.

And finally, Heather (that's me) used "Stuck Santa" by artist Diane Carubia. The white textured cardbase was spritzed with green metallic mist and then gray ink was sponged over a stencil. A fast background that is different every time.

***Please take a look at the challenge rules- we updated them recently*** We realize that many people don't have blogs, but instead participate in our challenges using on-line galleries and we love that you are helping us spread the word about Squigglefly! However, many of the galleries require passwords and not all of us at Squigglefy belong to every gallery or group. To help us make sure we don't miss your artwork, we are asking that if you do use an online gallery that you leave us a comment on the challenge post. That way we'll be sure to have a member of the Squigglefly team who is a member of that gallery (SCS, CDAC, PCP, etc) can validate your entry.

1) If you up-load your creation to any on-line photo galleries, please use SFC123 for your keywords when loading your creation photo there.
1b) please leave a comment on the challenge blog post so that someone from Squigglefly can validate your entry for the prize.
2) You don't *have* to include a Squigglefly image on your creation, but in order to qualify for the prize you will need to use one! You can also combine SF images with non-SF images to qualify! Don't have one? There are several FREEBIES you can grab!
3) You have one week to complete the challenge and it will close Sunday evening. The winner will be announced at the same time the new challenge post comes be sure to check back EVERY Monday to see if you are a winner!
4) Please leave a direct link to your entry in the comments below. The our linking tool works sporadically and we don't want to miss your project! (No back-linking please!)
