DTGD at Splitcost Part 2

Once a year, Splitcoast Stampers (SCS) has a challenge week for members. During that week, beginning at 9am for 6 days in a row, the SCS 'Dirty Dozen' (the SCS current design team and former Dirty Dozen Girls) post anywhere from 7 to 8 challenges a day.

You would be surprised to learn that there are actually quite a few members who finish all the challenges and receive the title of 'Challenge Queen'.

You would NOT be surprised that Yours Truly is NOT in the running for that title.

The main reason this title is out of my reach is due to the fact I've gotta go 'BIG' or go home. I can't just do something simple and move on.

Anyway, I'm going to post some of my work to date. We aren't allowed to reveal the specifics of the challenge, so I'm just going to post what I posted for each pic at SCS. Here we go!

Image is 'Fairy Sweet' from Saturated Canary with woven paper background and wooden sentiment. Colored with Copics

Poinsettia from Poppystamps die and stamp is Over the Edge LE Joy stamp. Backed with textured gold cardstock

Verdigris Geraniums. Flower handmade using McGill punches

I love this flower!!! Happened to have this frame in my stash and figured I'd use it....this flower isn't hard to make, but looks it...that's why I love it!! Flower handmade using McGill punches

I have been saving this specifically for DTGD14!!! I was hoping it would look 'bigger' but no technology in the world will shine when your iphone hates you.

Anyway, this is supposed to be a store window, with dress, garland and snow at the bottom. The best part is that the store window is lighted. It's impossible to see on camera unless I shoot it in the dark, but trust me when I say it's REALLY cool looking in full light, too! The possibilities are endless!

I'll do a full blog post about it later. It's a new, very inexpensive technology that I discovered on Robert Sabuda's site. In the 3rd photo, you can see how tiny everything is and it's very easy to make work. I can't see me using this on a lot of cards, but I can definitely see me using it on some cool Christmas cards and really special friend/family creation. The name of the technology is called Chibitronics and the website is here. My 10 year old can do this and, more importantly, so can I!! Woot Woot!!
