Real Jazzy Day!

It is Monday which means it is time for another challenge with my goofy CCEE friends. Todays challenge theme is one of my favorites of all the ones we do as it is our CNFS challenge which stands for Catchy Name Featured Stamper. Each month we select a member from SCS who has a catchy user name and we make a card using that as the theme and then send her all our cards.

This month the person we selected for our CNFS challenge is "Jazzytobi". The instructions we were given for this challenge was that our card must have something musical on it and the tea dying technique must be used.

Earlier this year I purchased this image & sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps which I thought was perfect for this challenge ... the sentiment actually says birthday not day ... but with a little bit of masking I was able to just stamp the word day. I knew I would need these stamps one day bwahahahahahahahahaha!

For the tea dying, I just grabbed a teabag from my pantry .... placed it in some water for a few seconds to get it wet and then got rid of the excess water and used this to pounce onto my white card for my image and sentiment.

The background was created using the music wheel by SU. Hopefully Jazzytobi will like this, as it will be on its way to her shortly.

Don't forget to check out my CCEE friends cards over on our CCEE Stampers Blog. You can even participate in this challenge too, details are on our CCEE blog.
