Default Finally!

Took me two days to look around and find something cool and useful. I settled on the band aid instead of a battery, cough drop, or quarter

Default First time challenge

I went for an industrial look on this card. I am still not sure if I like it...I look at it and hate it and then I look at it and see some beauty in it.

My medium was drywall mud

Edit: I did not like it in my gallery, (tossed in the trash this am but there is a one that I did using a pop can tab that I already had in the gallery. I will link that one instead.

Blessings,

Ciebelle

I finished the challenge, and I have uploaded to my gallery...I'm on a roll!
This was a very fun challenge! I love how it demanded an out-of-the-box style of creativity.

Here is my card...front and inside views.

This is my FIRST comment on Splitcoaststampers, so I hope it works
I haven't taken a picture of what I am going to suggest but I hope it will give some idea for your Technique Challenge of "unexpected embellishment"?
I have been saving AND using the envelopes I receive when bills are mailed to us.
There are some unique designs inside these particular envelopes and they make interesting backgrounds. I use them on cards and scrapbook pages. Sometimes I will color the designs with stains or magic markers. Other times I will stamp directly over the design. I not only feel creative, but ALSO enjoy being able to RECYCLE. Hope this helps some of you fellow Stampers? Stampin Busia

Hey, I have been following this challenge for a couple of days now. Great ideas! I came up with an idea, and made my card last night, but I am not sure how to post it here. I already have a small gallery, but am unclear how to do the whole linking thing. If any one could help I would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks,
Rebecca

What a GREAT idea! I just got one today with new medical insurance cards in it, and inside the envelope is a great medical print! Thanks for the tip!

This was my first upload - I couldn't resist this challenge! Used purple "spandex" which is really one of my son's used book covers that he brought home from the last day of school a few weeks ago! The other thing I used is a label from a pair of shorts I recently bought.

This card was made for a friend who just started an exercise program - the back of the spandex stretch inner card is plain white for writing.

Forums at Splitcoaststampers okay, I think that I did this right. I may need to try it again if not. This card was a lot of fun to make.

This was the first challenge card I've made...It was SO much fun to look around the house and see what I could use as the unexpected element!

Well here is one that I had uploaded recently to my gallery and it has very few views on it.
It fits this challenge perfectly.
TFL!

Great challenge, Beth. I really enjoyed seeing what other SCSers were doing. Decided to give a try.

Here are 2 different views of my card:
