space invaders: a new jbs mercantile game

we've got another great new super easy retro inspired game going at jbs mercantile.  the basic premise is to be inspired by any online challenge you find and then bring that challenge back to our message board to inspire others.  space invaders!  get it?  check it out HERE.  and, per usual, there's a $25 prize for the winner!  plus, we're sponsoring a vintage challenge HERE so you can double your chances to win by entering that one.  i'm not in the running for the prize, but that doesn't keep me from playing along.  here's my contribution to the vintage challenge and now i'm off to look up some more good challenges . . .

this one is a mix of the june papercrafting and artisan kits.  you can tell by how little g was in these pictures that i've been hoarding these photos for a long time.  you know the vintage thoroughbred letterhead and manilla envelope were totally inspiring for this layout.

the vintage slide is also in the main kit.  i kinda need another of those.  the little red ribbon i made last year i guess and never used.  it seemed to fit perfectly on this layout.  i made it from the blue ribbon clear stamp set and some red goodies.  i've been meaning to do a tutorial on the process.  maybe i'll find the time this summer.

the little flowers were punched with my much loved martha stewart hydrangea punch.  i layered the washi tape from the kit over white cardstock before punching them out.

and then i inked the wooden letters with red stayzon as i needed another strong punch of red at the top.
