Technique Blitz & TSSC 31

Today, I am cheating. well, not cheating exactly, but just stretching things a bit...

First, I am stretching on my Technique Blitz card. This is what you might want to call a "Fake" Bandanna Card (August 2008 Technique Junkie Newsletter). The red area behind my sock monkey was done on plain stamped red cardstock. This Fake Bandanna card is a good way to do the technique when you are short on time....

My sock monkey was colored with the Marker Watercoloring Technique from the June 2008 issue of the Newsletter. Really. No stretch on that one!

But I am stretching the Technostamper Sketch Challenge #31 a bit. The sketch called for a circle with and three elements beneath the horizontal image. While it is a great layout...my card didn't quite fit it....the sketch is below; decide whether it accomplishes the idea or not for yourself:

Make sure to watch Mary Jo's blog for the other players, and thanks for stopping by!

This is only the second card with this set that I like. I must be the only demo who does not love this set--I actually plan to buy the accessories but not the monkey himself. Your card is great, and it is only a little stretch, after all this is for ispriation right! I swear I am gonna do that bandana technique tonight!--maybe, lol. Thanks fo playing.
