Loves Rubberstamps Challenge-Out of the Box

It is another fabulous Tuesday morning which means it is time for another Loves Rubberstamps Challenge.

This week's challenge is:

Out of the Box Technique

Make a creation that uses the Out Of The Box Technique! If you have never done this technique - there are some great tutorials on splitcoast stampers. Here are the links:

Tutorial #1 - Out of the Box
Tutorial #2 - Out of the Box - has printable PDF file
One of my favorite stamp designs in both digital and rubber stamps, Kenny K, is hosting our challenge this week.  YEAHHHH. In my excitement I made TWO cards this week for our challenge.  So that means TWO prizes to be won. A gift card for the Loves Rubberstamps store and 5 digis from Kenny K.
The first is the primary card called Frieda Flapper

I had so much fun making this card.  The image is colored with my Copics.
hair: 37,35,
Skin E15,13,11
Dress: R27,29,touch of 39
Boa: C5,3,1

The paper, flowers, sparkle and lace are from my stash. I used my spellbinders to cut out the image.

I will be entering this onto the folllowing challenges:

The next is the Halloween Image that Kenny K was so gracious to donate to use. Being the season, I just had to use this one.

Colored again with my Copics/Spectrum Noir combo

Gray/black: Spoectrum Noirs: IG 10,8,6,4
Hair: E 27,25,23-Copics
Skin: YR00,000,R20-Copics
Orange: YR 7,4

Paper is from MME. I made the flowers myself. I cut 8 2 1/2 inch scallops out of my cricut, sponged them, scrunched them and spritz them with water and then put a brad in the middle to hold it all together. I added some black glitter glue and the sentiment I got from my Secret Pumpkin, Ashley!!! I used my Cricut to cut the border that Trixxie is on via the Haunted Halloween Cartridge.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
