Jacksonbelle Tuesday AND a Contest!!

September already!!?! Wow! Summer sure went fast and the kids are back at school! Now we get to kick off the fall with a Jacksonbelle Embellishments Inka Contest - and the prizes are amazing!!

The grand prize winner will receive a $50.00 Gift Certificate to Lindsey’s store! 2nd Place, $30.00 and 3rd place $15.00! All winners will receive a goodie bag in addition to their gift certificate!! If you decide to play each week, creating a card based on all 4 sketches, your name will be entered into a random drawing and THAT person will also win a goodie bag!

SO, you are probably wondering what you have to do!? You have to use Inkadinkado Stamps (newer...from this Spring-until now) as well as our sketches that will be posted each Tuesday! You can enter as many times as you'd like! You are also free to post anywhere you'd like! We will post coordinating Keywords for the sketches if you are posting on Splitcoaststampers, this way we will all be able to see your card(s)!

You MUST however email every card to Lynda (lynda.benden@gmail.com).

You will have until Wednesday, Sept. 30th at midnight (EST) to get your cards in to Lynda. After that, the Design Team and Lindsey will need a few days to decide on the winners! Be sure to check the Design Team’s blog each week for LOTS of inspiration using the weekly sketch!!!

Sketch 1 - JBE018

Sounds great, doesn't it?! So please please play along! I can't wait to see all of the submissions!

Here's what I came up with!

I know, it is not the best picture - but it had to do - my batteries died! I used Basic Grey Ambrosia paper, which I sadly fear is already gone. (If you ask nicely, Lindsey may just order some more though!) I was so excited to see that I could use this as Halloween paper! I stamped the Inka witch on shimmery cardstock with black ink and then touched up just a bit with some Beeswax Shimmers so it looks a bit like the jack-o-lanterns and the skulls are glowing. I used the cutest Martha punch, the bag! Isn't it darling? I don't normally like bats - but this one is too cute! I layered the bats, the first layer is completely glued to the card, and the second layer (painted in Coal Shimmerz of course) is only glued on the body so the wings can move - I love it! And the flowers.....Oh the flowers! You know already that I have officially married the Mr. White Prima to the Mrs. Shimmerz Paint, right? Well - I just couldn't let Mr. White Prima go on being naked and lonely any more. He met Mrs. Shimmerz only a few weeks ago and he will NEVER ever be the same again! I colored the Orange one with an alcohol marker first, then painted it with Beeswax Shimmerz (in all my Shimmerz, I don't have orange yet!!). The greyish one is painted with Coal Shimmerz, and the black one was colored with a black alcohol marker first, then painted with Shimmerz. I LOVE that you can create just about any color flower with markers and Shimmerz and little white naked prima of course!

Thanks for stopping by today - be sure to check out the other JB-Girls for inspiration for your contest creation!
