Default APR08VSNJ - Sat 2 pm - FAVORITE BLUE JEANS - Chat thread

Title: “Favorite Blue Jeans”
Hostess: arinstamps (Arin)
Keyword: APR08VSNJ
Day/Date: Sat 4/5
Time: 2 pm EDT/ 11 am PDT


Her favorite dress is her faded blue jeans
Yea, a pickup truck is her limousine
And her favorite dress is her faded blue jeans
She loves me tender when the goin' gets tough
Somtimes we fight just so we can make up

Lord I need that little woman
Like the crops need the rain
She's my honeycomb and I'm her sugar cane
We really fit together
If you know what I'm talkin' about
Yea, we're two of a kind
Workin' on a full house


from "Two of a Kind, Workin' On a Full House" by Garth Brooks

At my stage in life, fashion is not a priority. I'm beyond a full house: my hand has two of a kind and four of a kind (though I don't know what kind of poker I'd be playing!) My favorite dress is absolutely blue jeans!

So, my challenge is to create a monochromatic blue card!
(Use only blue shades and neutrals.)

Bonus points for adding texture:
either the appearance of texture (ie. with a stamp like linen or sanded,) or real texture (ie. with embossing or texture-rich embellies like felt or ribbon.)
Make sure to tell me in your description how you added texture.

The first sample is mine and the second is by Denise (resqbarbie), third is by (Michelle) eliotstamps:
lab vsn blue jeans sample.jpgDSC07251.jpgAPR08VSNO.jpg

See all the cards for this challenge HERE!

*** ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 11:00 PM EST ON SUNDAY, APRIL 6th ***

Uploading Instructions:
*You have 45 minutes to complete this challenge.
*Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
*It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread, in case the gallery is being testy.

Great challenge Arin. I looked in my closet and all my clothes are Black, shades of Blue or Red. I think I need to try some other colors but for your challenge I'll stick with shades of blue.

I'm the same way with green. I'd buy everything green if I didn't stop myself!

Sorry, girls, we're having some technical difficulties. This is the correct 2 p.m. challenge, and I'll be fixing the other samples momentarily!

If you caught a glimpse of the other challenge, consider it a sneak peek of the 9 p.m. challenge! Sorry about that.

Your sample rocks Denise! You are doing a fab job, you know. You're allowed to slip up once or twice. VSN takes a lot of coordinating!!!

I'd live in blue jeans if my work would allow it! I loved this challenge, cause I am all about monochromatic. I used my Cuttlebug to add texture to the card.

Here it is: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...3531?cat=12524

Did I mention that monochromatic cards was my challenge last time I hosted VSN?...

Thanks, Arin!
