Scraps Of Darkness Taking On Technique Challenge Using Graphic Cat Sketch 16

Over at Scraps of Darkness/ Scraps of Elegance, I have been hosting a challenge called the "Stalker Challenge". I started this challenge when we were just Scraps of Darkness, and now that we have  added, and embraced our sister kit club Scraps Of Elegance, I have decided that it is time for a new approach and challenge, time for a change that is more inclusive of both Kit Clubs. I asked myself, "what does Scraps Of Darkness, and Scraps of Elegance have in common that attracts our members to us?" My answer was simple, our love of the artisitic, more technique side of scrapping. So with that thought in mind, my new challenge was born. It will be called the "Taking On Technique Challenge", and will challenge our members to use a specific technique for that challenge round.

The kick off of this challenge will start October 1st and run until December 1st. I am getting it on a few days early, because Scraps Of Elegance Reveal is October 1st and I didn't want to overlap the two on one day :)

The Rules:

1. You must use at least 75 % Scraps of Darkness or Scraps of Elegance products. Either from the kit or from store purchases.

2. You can make any type of project your heart desires (some examples; layouts, canvas art, cards, ATCs, altered art, etc....)

3. The Technique-Stamping~ Your project must have stamping of some type on it ~

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

The challenge will end December 1st, votes will be pm'ed to our Mistress of Mayhem Michelle (Bubbachooka), and 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!

I used the September Sketch from Graphic Cat to create a Halloween Card that is based on the Edgar Allan Poe Poem "The Raven". Here is the sketch:

And, here is my example using the sketch and for the Taking On Technique Challenge:

I used pieces from multiple Scraps Of Darkness past kits.

Here you can see the close up of the Raven that I stamped onto white card stock and then fussy cut out and accented with a Swarovski crystal.

I hope you get a chance to come play along with us, or to at least take part in one of the many fun challenges that are hosted over in the SOD/SOE forums!!!!!  I love a good challenge, and I also love that you took the time to drop by!! Hugs to you ~Renea
