Challenge No. 5 at the House of Gilli

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. I did and it was very creative.

I, Aletha (some people call me AJ), am the hostess for the House of Gill’s FIFTH challenge. I challenge you to use STRIPES AND BLING! This should be an easy one.

Speaking for the Design Team at the House of Gilli, we thrilled to have such a great response to our new blog. I just wanted to say how much we appreciate all of the entries. This has been, and will continue being, so much fun!

I have had my Basic Grey designer paper picked out for over a month. When it caught my eye I knew it was for Boho Gilli. It screamed “Flower Power” or maybe “Girl Power.” Anyway, I thought, “You go girl!” I love bright colors!

This is a list of supplies that I used:
CS: SU’s Only orange and Bashful Blue
DP: Basic Grey’s Lime Rickey
Copics: yr01, 02; e000, 07, 11, 13, 34, 50, 59; r20; b21, 26; w2, 4
Inks/Pens: Memento Tuxedo Black; Spicas in Chocolate, Gold; Gelly Roll Clear Star
Crystals: Olive (I think I got these from Paper Wishes)
Ribbon: Felt ribbon from Michaels (the bargain bin!)
Spellbinders Dies: Crown Ovals
I have also entered Boho Gilli in these challenges:
Craft Your Days Away – Spots and Stripes
Card Makin’ Mamas – Embellish It
The Outlawz Friday Copic/Promarker Challenge – Mix mediums on image (I used Copics and Spicas)
Papertake Weekly – Anything Goes, but with something new (Boho Gilli rubber stamp)
By the Cute and Girly – Anything cute and girly

Thanks for stopping by.

I hope you join us over at the House of Gilli! And, if you use a Gilli in your little piece of art, be sure and post it at the House of Gilli Yahoo group and the Gilli Gallery on Flickr.

Have a great week!
Aletha
