The day is finally here!  Our first sketch from the As You See It Challenge site is up, as well as all of the Design Team Members creations with it!!!  I hope you’ll take the time this weekend to play along!  We cannot wait to see what you’ve created.  (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check out my announcement HERE.)

If you read my Design Team Q&A, you know I said that my favorite stamp set is Gorgeous Grunge, but that I hadn’t actually inked it up!  Sounds crazy, right?  Well, I couldn’t wait to use it for this challenge!!!  I paired up the sketch from our As You See It Challenge #001 with a color combination from the Stampin’ Up! Color Coach of Island Indigo, Basic Gray, and Elegant Eggplant.

Some details:  I sponged some Whisper White Craft Ink around the edges of the Basic Gray mat and the Island Indigo flags to really make them pop.  I also dyed some Whisper White Baker’s Twine with a mixture of Basic Gray Classic Ink Refill and rubbing alcohol.  Stay tuned for a video on how to do this!  Another little detail – the diagonal stripe stamp is stamped in Island Indigo, then onto a scratch piece of paper then onto the project.  This technique, called stamping off, makes the image a little less bold and is great for collage stamping like this.  The sentiment, from Hello, Lovely, was stamped on Whisper White and cut out with the Paper Snips.  Did you see the Elegant Eggplant button?  It’s from the brand new, redesigned Regals Collection Designer Buttons!  They are better than ever!  LOVE them!!!  Also, the Gray and White chevron pattern (used for the flags) are from the I Am Me Designer Series Paper – one of my favorites in the 2013-2014 Annual Catalog!  Lastly, the Island Indigo flags were embossed with the Alphabet Press Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.  It’s a bit difficult to see in the picture but it’s beautiful in real life.

Check out the sketch I used to create my project below!  The full supply list with links to the items in my Stampin’ Up! Store are below the sketch.  I really hope you play along at the first ever As You See It Challenge!  Check it out at the As You See It Challenge Blog!!!
