Hello Bloggers! It's time for Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge! The challenge this week was to use a Kenny K image and to use the "Out of the Box" technique. For those who are unfamiliar with this technique, it is basically to have your image extend outside of the area you are cutting. There are various ways of cutting a shape around your image but not cutting through the area that is "outside". There are many tutorials out there on the web showing how to do this. The easiest way to achieve this technique seems to be to use one of your Spellbinder die cuts. However, I'm sure there are other ways ways this can be done.
So here is my card!!! Both Kenny K and the "Out of the Box" technique are both new to me!!! I had so much fun with the challenge and learned something new! I used a cute digi image called "Farmer's Daughter" from Kenny K. This was such a fun image to work with! I colored her up with my copic markers and cut her out using my Spellbinders Circle die cut. See her little feet extending "out of the box"?!! :) I used some Tim Holtz distress ink in "Frayed Burlap" around the circle to give it a little color. I laid that on top of a Spellbinders "Blossoms" die cut using some designer paper. The DP I used is a collection called "Summer Fresh" from Simple stories. Lots of gorgeous fun papers in this 6x6 collection. I also used some Bazzil card stock behind in "Pink Cotton Candy". I found a fun mini stamp from Studio G to use for the sentiment "You are my Sunshine". I thought this fit well with my theme! I used my Memento Ink in "Black Tuxedo" to stamp. The pretty pink daisy and small white flat flowers are from I Am Roses. The bling is from Recollections. I also couldn't help but use some brown shiny wheat leaves to match the wheat leaf in the image! These are from Karla S001 on Etsy.
