Clearly Inspired Challenge #1



Good morning everyone!! Today is the first Clear Dollar Stamps challenge on Lori's blog, Clearly iStamp.
We are to use 5 of something....5 layers, stamps, colors, ribbons...you name it...the sky is the limit!!
1. This challenge will be open to any stamps - if you have Clear Dollar Stamps, why not use them!!
2. This will be a bimonthly challenge - every other Friday but the challenge itself will only be open for 1 week.
3. This is because the winner (randon draw) and a TOP FIVE will be posted the following Friday after the challenge and will just stay up until the following Friday when the nect challenge is up.
4. The challenges will vary every single time from sketches, colors, themes, products, etc.
5. There will be a prize (random draw) of a stamp set of choice to one indivividual.

I used the adorable images from Clear Dollar Stamp's Dog Days set...stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and Memento Rich Cocoa, colored with copics, and attached the layers with dimensionals. 5 little bee buttons were used to harass that poor little pup in the dog house!!!


Recipe:
Stamps: Clear Dollar stamps Dog Days
Paper: White, Ballet Blue, Ruby Red, Basic Grey dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories: Nestabilities, Ribbon, Bee Buttons, Dimensionals


Thanks for visiting today......join in the fun...get out your stamps and make a card with 5 of something!!!
