AiFactory Tuesday - Challenge #11

Good morning everybody! It's time for AiFactory Tuesday! This week it's Live Free with Brads and Eyelets! We're challenging everyone to use one of the freebie images in the AiFactory store and to incorporate brads and/or eyelets into the design. The design team is doing it Splitcoast Stampers CAS38 style, so we're keeping it clean and simple this week.

I chose the snowflake scatter brushes. Bet you'd never have guessed! It took a little bit of playing around, since I'm not quite used to playing around with different brush styles just yet, but I got the snowflakes to show up in the sizes I wanted, changed their colour - several times, actually, until I was happy with how they appeared. Then I printed them out, chose the ones I wanted, and used a circle punch to cut out the few that I wanted. I CASE'd this card. My sentiment is a traditional rubber stamp by Karen Lockhart, but the snowflakes? All digital, baby! Oh, and how do you like my new card stand? It's my Unity A handle. I couldn't find my card stand the other night and couldn't get the card I was trying to photograph to stay put. This worked brilliantly! Why not, right?

Okay, so the gory details. You have until midnight next Monday (11/16) to play along. This week we are requiring that you use a freebie from the AiFactory Store. It should also include brads or eyelets and be Clean & Simple. We don't ask for much, do we? Don't worry. I know you can do it!

This week, someone will win the Christmas Decoration Tree digi stamp! So get cracking, okay?? Don't forget to link your project to the challenge blog. When posting to online galleries, please use AIF011, aifactory and CAS38.

Now it's time to head over and see what the rest of the team has for you to see!
