A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA Challenge #4

Time for another challenge as we countdown to A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA! Friday is the BIG DAY! YEAH BABY!!!

Challenge #4 is to create a card using the word SPOT as your inspiration. Whatever SPOT means to you - go with it! Get all the details HERE on the A Muse News Blog.

There are lots of Spots going on around my card. Spots on the papers, Spots on the Cow, Spots on the doodling, the bird found a Spot to stand on top of the cow, all those little yellow paper Spots are tucked under the BIG white paper Spot. I would say my card qualifies :)

All those yellow circles are punched out scraps from when I prepped for a class in June. I love using scraps.

After I got done coloring everything...I thought those plants would look cool with some Flower Soft. After I was all done sticking that stuff on...somethin' HIT ME! Ummmm...are those supposed to be wheat? OOPS!! Oh looks good. Normally I would have started all over...but this time I just went with it. I like how it turned out :)

The cow bell is colored with a silver glitter pen. I stamped the image a 2nd time and cut out the cows head & bow on tail -- then popped them up with foam tape. Yes...that teeny tiny little tail bow is popped up with a sliver of foam tape!

Now let's see what you come up with for the Spot Challenge :)

My first AMAP class is Friday at Stamp Works - Santa's Toy Box. And guess what...that class is full! If you're interested in taking any of the other better hurry and get signed is VERY LIMITED! If you can't make it to one of my classes -- maybe you can stop by for one of the Make & Takes.

Now - that's some seriously CUTE stamping!! Can't believe you cut out that teeny tiny bow!! AND you got all your punched "spots" spaced perfectly around the outside of your big "spot" - that's the kind of card I'd hold on to (that is, of course, if I made a card with that much work in it!) - Doodled spots too!
