No Rulz! Blog Hop!

It's summer and it's hot, so let's break it up a bit! The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog Design Team is happy to bring you our "No Rulz!" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by River City Rubber Works! Come hop with us for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate!
As you hop, leave comments! The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win!

All of the LTSCB designers are creating Anything Goes inspiration projects for our blog hop. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a 'No Rulz' project for extra entry/entries into the drawing! No rules for this challenge!

For my card, I chose this beautiful image called "Sunflowers, Large".  The DT received digital images of the River City Rubber Works rubber stamps.  And I have to admit, when I first saw this one printed out I was a little disappointed.  It just seemed a bit blurry, you know, not crisp.  But I had to use it so I colored it up and now I LOVE it!!  The blurriness is really just shading and it helps the image come alive.  I also love how this card turned out.  It's CAS but really grabs me.


I printed the image out three times, colored and layered different parts of the image to create some really awesome dimension.  The first layer is the entire image.  The second layer is the three flowers facing the front and the third layer is the two larger flowers.  You can see the dimension in the following picture:

 To finish the image off, I added brown stickles to the centers of the flowers.  Can you see the sparkle in this last photo???



Here is the line-up:


We hope you are enjoying the hop and if you get lost along the way - or if you landed here in the middle of the hop and want to join in the fun - head over to the Love To Scrap!Challenge Blog to read all the details and start from the beginning!
