Challenge: Friends!


Happy Monday (bank holiday Monday for us here today - woo hoo!) I hope y'all ready for a fun new challenge?!

For this fortnight's challenge we want you to create something with a friend in mind...

For my example for this challenge, I won't surprise anyone by saying I inked up my Friends 'til the End stamp set! Though I was determined to not use the flowers as I always do in that set and instead focus on the words:

I'm hoping that this could almost pass for a masculine card with those colours, though is it too slushy to send a guy a 'friend' card?

Card Recipe
Stamps: Friends 'til the End
Ink: Versamark/Dark Chocolate/Scarlet Jewel/Antique Linen Distres Ink
Cardstock: Kraft/Scarlet Jewel/Ripe Avocado
Accessories: Ripe Avocado Ribbon/Jute Ribbon Twine/Dark Chocolate Button/Cuttlebug/Cuttlebug Embossing Folder

Over to Kate: "For my sample I reached for my beautiful In Bloom set, it's just the most gorgeous set to colour and is going to a very special friend :) I don't think you can tell from the picture but the flower is super glittery!

Stamps - In Bloom
Card - Kraft/Aqua Mist
Ink - Memento Black
Other - Copic Sketch Markers/Glitter/EK Success border punch

And as our featured stamper this month, here's Marinette's fabulous take on the challenge:

Papers: Bazill kraft, papers Turning a new leaf by Papertrey Ink,
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Delightful Dahlia/Daily Designs/Tiny Tag "Friend" from Mixed Messages

So here are the deets:

* All entries must contain at least one PTI product to qualify

* To enter, use our inlinkz thingy at the bottom of this post. If you're having problems then just leave a comment with a link to your post featuring the project on your blog or online gallery.

* Worldwide entries are more than welcome to share the inspiration and can be in with a chance of being a Top 3 PTI Passionista, but unfortunately prizes can only be shipped within Europe!

* Challenge closes on Monday, May 17th 2010 at 9.00am GMT

* A winner will be chosen at random to receive some PTI goodies! In addition to this, we'll select the top three creations we like the most and feature them on the Blog. The top three PTI Passionistas will have chance to display a Top 3 Passionista Blinkie on their own blog.

So start thinking 'friend', Peeps and go get inky!

Aimes, Kate and Marinette
