EBTKS Challenge 24

Hi, everyone! It's time for another Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge!

This month we are switching things up a bit. Previously, once a month we challenged you to use some type of household item on your card. Starting today, we are going to be offering an inspiration challenge on the 30th of the month. Each of the hostesses will take turns sharing an item from their home, and you are free to use it as inspiration however you wish. Sound fun?

Our sponsor for this first inspiration challenge is the fun Lilly Bimble! They have tons of cool digital paper packs, clipart, etc. to choose from. Our winner will receive 5 items from the Lilly Bimble shop!

Our hostess for this challenge is Lynnette, and she chose this fun bag as her inspiration. I just love the fun colors and pattern, don't you?

The pattern on the purse is the first thing that caught my eye, so I used one of Lilly Bimble's Damask Overlays to mimic part of the design. These overlays are sweet ; they are black designs with clear backgrounds, so you can print them out on any color paper you wish. Cool, right?

I also pulled out a couple of the dominant colors from the purse and used them on my card.

So, ready to play along with us? Using Lynnette's purse as your inspiration, link up your finished creation to the EBTKS blog. You have until midnight on Sat., Oct. 9 to be eligible for the prize.

One of my favorite things about inspiration challenges is how different the creations can be...even though we are all starting with the same inspiration piece. I can't wait to see what you do with it!

Stamps: Signature Greetings (PTI)
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, PTI white
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black
Accessories: Lilly Bimble Damask Overlays, PTI ribbon, dimensionals
