Faux Something CHALLENGE

Happy Friday!!

I can't believe another week is already over and we're on to a new challenge! We'd like to thank all of you who participated in our "Little Something to Say Thank You" challenge last week. It's been amazing to see all the awesome creativity. We've enjoyed visiting all of you! We hope you'll continue to play along each week.

The challenge this week is "Faux Something." We'd like to see you fake us out with your clever faux creations! There are so many different techniques out there, give one a try. Check out the samples made by our design team for some inspiration. We tried faux stitching, faux silk, faux leather, faux linen, faux ribbon and faux metal.


For a chance at this week's blog candy offer, please participate in the challenge and post your creation on your blog, online gallery, or email me a picture. Then, please comment on THIS post with a link to your work. All entries must be received by 7pm ET next Thursday evening to be considered for the blog candy drawing. The candy this week is a Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Lots of Thoughts. Good luck! :)

Now it's your turn! Show us what you've got that fools the eye, go and faux stamp something!! :)
