Birthday Celebration Week 4: Stretch It

Welcome to week 4 of Wplus9's 4th Birthday Celebration!

Are you ready for another challenge and a chance to win a $100 Wplus9 Gift Certificate prize? I hope you all have been having fun with the challenges this month. I sure have enjoyed seeing all of your entries! This week we are going to Stretch It, stretch those creative muscles that is! I'm challenging you to step outside of your comfort zone. Try a style that is not your norm, attempt an advanced technique that's intimidated you, use supplies in a creative way...anything that is considered a stretch for you.

Me? Well, I'm not usually into time intensive techniques or styles. So, I've challenged myself by choosing a technique that requires a little patience and pre-planning, but the payoff is huge! Inlaid die cutting.

Wplus9 Supplies:
Stamps: Borders & Backgrounds 3 , Whole Lotta' Happy // Ink: Sweet Nectar, Wild Mango, Bloomsberry, Lake House, and Silver Lining Dye Ink (available March 2014) // Dies: Whole Lotta' Happy Die, Basic Banners Die, Hearts & Clouds Die // Cardstock: White, Lake House

Are you ready to play along?
