October's Costume Challenge!

Welcome to the final stop on our blog hop!  You should have made it here from Emily's Blog.

Don't you hate it when you come up with a challenge idea...share it with your partner in crime...e-mail it to your design it on the blog...and then have NO STINKIN IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH IT?  Sticker challenge?  What was I thinking?  LOL  I even contemplated being too "busy" to do this hop, so I wouldn't have to do it.

Good thing I am more stubborn than that.

I got out my handy dandy book, The Scrapbook Embellishment Handbook by Sherri Stevenson, and started browsing for ideas.  I found one in the sticker section (who'd have thunk it?) about covering chipboard with stickers.  Hmmmmm....  I have OODLES of chipboard.  So I got out one of the hearts and a sheet of owl stickers.

I overlapped and layered the owl stickers on the chipboard heart, being careful to keep it looking random and not linear.  Then I flipped it over and trimmed away the excess.

Here is my finished project: a card inspired by Scrapbooks Ect. cover layout.  Don't you love the SMILE sticker from Momenta?  It has some nice puffy, shiney demension to it.

So that is my story and I'm stickin to it.  Now to make sure I plan an easier challenge for next month.
