Scraps Of Darkness Stalker Challenge April 1st - June 30th

Over at Scraps Of Darkness I host a quarterly challenge called The Stalker Challenge. This month we are going to do a twist on the challenge, and pretend that I am the Stalker. I have become the participants Stalker and I am know stalking their home. I want them to pick out a room in their home that I would see and tell me something about that room. Beginning the title with "This Is Where I .........".

The Rules:

1. You must use at least 80% Scraps of Darkness or Scraps of Elegance products. Either from the kit or from store purchases.

2. You must include a photo of a room in your home.

3. You must include in the title "This Is Where I .........." finishing out the title with something that tells you about that room.

4. The most important rule of all, Have Fun!!!

The winner will receive a $10.00 Gift Certificate from the SOD/SOE store, and a small RAK from my Etsy Shop!! So come join in on the fun!

Here is my example layout:

I chose a shot of my bedroom and I titled it "This Is Where I Dream." I used the Scraps Of Darkness March Kit-Needful Things to create the layout. I layered in Graphic 45 and SEI paper from the kit along with a piece of card stock from a previous add on.

 I then took a Doilie that I sprayed with some of the Maya Mist from this month's color add on. I took some ZVA bling from the store and framed out my photo. Then took some of the SEI die cuts from the kit and printed the first words of my title onto them and inked the edges.

In the top corner I pleated some of the crochet trim from the Romance Add On and then fussy cut the boot image from some of the G45 paper, added some Stickles and popped on a hand tinted mini rose.

I took some more of the crochet trim and put it across the bottom of the layout and then cut out foliage that I stamped using some Heartfelt Creations Stamps and matching Spellbinders Die. I then added on the big cream and beige flowers from the Flora & Fauna Add on as well as some Shabby Terra Cotta Texture Roses from my Etsy Shop. I repeated the process on the opposite side and then popped on some Poppy Gold Crush Glitter Glass Butterflies from my Etsy Shop to add that extra dimension and shine.

So see,you got to Stalk me and check out my bedroom where I do most of my dreaming, and next comes the fun part, I get to Stalk all the members who come to play along!! So much fun! I love all the really cool and unique challenges that we have going on over at Scraps Of Darkness. Even if you don't play along with this one, I invite you to come check out some of the other ones. They really can push you out of your creative comfort zone and set your imagination free! ~Renea
