A new Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge: Punchy!

Hello everyone!

Hope you've all had a great week.  I'm very much looking forward to getting some rest and I'm sure you are, too :)  What better way to rest up craft!  Haha, at least that's what I define as resting up.

Anywho, today is the first Friday of the month so you know what that means: time for a new Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge!  This time we have an easy one for you: get punchy - use your punches and/or dies.  We are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish who will be donating 6 digital images or 4 digital images and 1 paper pack to one lucky winner!

For my card, I've used an oh-so-fuzzy image from Teddy Bo and Company called Ballerina Bea.  I'm so intimated of coloring up these images because I've seen many talented people using them on their cards and making them look gorgeous.  So...I didn't even try to color it, lol.  I've used the pencil sketch version of this image and left it as is.  It's printed on watercolor paper, though, to give it a little bit of texture.

For the punchy part of the challenge, I used a bunch of swirl/flourish dies (Marianne D's, Spellbinders) along with a doily die from Cheery Lynn.  I kept it very neutral with just the browns because I didn't want the image being overpowered since it printed out rather light (and came out even lighter in photos).

Please join us over at The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge Blog to play along with our punchy challenge and also to see what beautiful samples the DT came up with!

Image: Teddy Bo and Company Ballerina Bea; Papers: BasicGrey Capella; Embellishments: hand-dyed seam binding, pearls, rhinestones; Tools: Spellbinders dies, Marianne D's dies, Making Memories distresser, Cheery Lynn doily die

A beautiful and stunning card. It is so elegant. I really like the colour co-ordination of all your papers and embellishments. Nicely finished with the pretty flourishes.

I saw your card on the make it Monday blog.

Hi Ann, I happened on your blog from Make it Monday. Your card is gorgeous - so many beautiful layers and great monochrome colours. Though Teddy Bea looks beautiful as is, I have a feeling she would look terrific if you coloured her up too. Hugs, Dawn
