SDC57: Outta Tha Box!

It's time for another Stampotique Designer's Challenge and this week the idea is to try something new or different.  Dust off some supplies or tools you've been meaning to use, try a new technique, or create a different type of art than you usually create... Just have fun doing something new and different!

Now, I don't know about you, but for me, this is a real challenge.  I get stuck in my ways and I use the same supplies and papers over and over.  So for this challenge, I got as far out of my box as I could! LOL! I used recycled EK Success punch packaging as my background piece instead of using patterned paper.  I made a tag instead of a card.  I used 2 new stamps, new ribbon, a new flower and a new Cheery Lynn leaf die under the flower.  I even used an ink pad that I don't often pull out - Flanel Grey Archival Ink (love the softness of this color).  Finally, I photographed my project instead of scanning.  I have to say, this was fun!  I hope you'll play along for your chance to win a $30 gift certificate to the Stampotique Store!
