Crikey, I’m a’bouncin’!

Looky, looky!!!


I wanted this to be as bold and "punchy" as the fabulous Vera Bradley print in Shurkus’s challenge!  I think I pulled that part off!  I did some faux stitching with my piercing tool and white gel pen to re-create the "designer label" effect!  (I cannot help but smile whenever I see this technique used–I can still hear Consuelo, shouting out "SHUT UP!!!" *chinkle*)

As I was layering color and stamp images, I started to wonder . . . "Hmmmm . . .  I dunno if this is gonna work or not . . . "  But, it still seemed to have a chance, so I kept going . . . So glad I did not give it an untimely burial in the circular file because I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!
