Crazy 4 Challenges #13

Did you all make it through Thanksgiving and Black Friday????
I hope your turkey was yummy and the sales were plentiful!!

Today is Saturday and that means it is time for another fun challenge at

This week our hostess, Frances, challenged us to use punches in our artwork. Well....I did, but not like I wanted to. Do you ever have a plan that totally blows up in your face?? Well, my plan backfired big time. lol



I colored this adorable girl from Kraftin Kimmie with Copics and a great plan in my head. Since she had paint splattered on her, I was going to pull out my very dusty splatter punch. I haven't used it in YEARS and it was going to be so happy to feel loved again. This is where my plan went bad. I can't find that darn punch!! I know I had it, but apparently it ran away because it felt so neglected. But, I couldn't come up with a different plan. I so wanted to see this card in my head come to life. So, I used various flower punches and just cut little bits away to make them look like splatters of paint. It kinda goes with the challenge, right? I DID use punches, they just don't look like the original punchies anymore. lol I had very little extra time last week, so I had to make this work. After placing the splatters down on the card, I went over each one with Matte Accents. I also went over the various spots of paint on the girl with it.I stamped the word, colored the T with Copics and then went over each letter with Matte Accents as well. It is a pretty simple looking card, but I really love it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Be sure to check out what great punchy art the other C4C girls did this week!!! Have a great weekend!
