CROP with the Odd Girls! lots of prizes, new recipe challenge!

WOOT!  it's CROP WEEK in the Some Odd Girl Facebook community, and if you haven't already dropped by to see what we're up to, you're missing out! 

this week, we Odd Girls are hosting a challenge each day, Monday - Friday, and there are five $20 gift certificates to the Some Odd Girl shop up for grabs!  BUT THERE'S MORE!  there will be one GRAND PRIZE winner of a $50 gift certificate!

wanna know how to win?  CLICK HERE and play along with any of our challenges this week - each entry in the challenge gets you a shot at that $20 gift certificate, PLUS one entry into the grand prize draw. 

for my challenge today, i've got a RECIPE for you.  it's an easy one! here are your ingredients:

1 - incorporate a GRID into your project somehow
2 - use a technique.  anything that ALTERS any other thing (besides, like, stamping and coloring)
3 - mix up your fonts!  combine 2 or more fonts to create a sentiment

and don't forget to use Some Odd Girl stamps!  that's it.  you can create a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item, a tag, an art journal page, a piece of home decor, whatever! 

here's my card featuring the UH-DOOR-UH-BULL Pixie Dust clear stamp set, plus the frame from Garden Gwen, and clear sentiments from Wink Mae, In Stitches Tia and Walk the Dog Piper

my grid and my technique are combined - i embossed 7/8" squares all around the front of my card, punched 3/4" squares and adhered them into random squares.  embossing is my technique - told you it was an easy one!  and here's a hint - MANY of the Some Odd Girl sentiments combine different fonts for a dash of whimsy, so that one should be easy, too!

Pixie Dust is coloured up with my Spectrum Noir markers, and the sentiment and frame are stamped on clear acetate (because these would never stamp nicely on the embossed lines of my card!).  here's a zoom!

and that's how it's done!  so you want to play along, right?
CLICK HERE and go to the community.  enter your NEW creation (made especially for our challenge), upload it to the appropriate album (not just on the wall), and feel free to combine with outside challenges, but not with other crop challenges this week.  everything closes at midnight on June 7th, with the winners being announced in the Facebook group and in our email newsletter (CLICK HERE to subscribe so you don't miss all the dirt!) on June 8th.

OH, and because i'm a total enabler, you might want to know that all of the stamp sets i used except Walk the Dog Piper are in the RETIREMENT category right now, with limited quantities and DEEP discounts!  

see you on Facebook, and happy croppin'!
