Good Morning, y'all. It's a super cold Saturday here in NE PA. 5 degrees. We ran out of heating oil so we stayed at my MIL's house last night so I'm a bit late posting this today. Our oil is coming today, but our pipes froze last night. It's so cold here in our house that you can see your breath.
This is my first post as a design team member for Open-minded Crafting Fun. This is also our very first challenge ever. We are a bi-weekly challenge blog and have some amazing sponsors lined up for this year.
Our first challenge this year is a "New Technique/New Tool" challenge. I'm sure quite a few of y'all received some new things for Christmas and can't wait to try them out. Well, here's your chance.
We have four sponsors for this challenge. Our first sponsor is A Day for Daisies and the prize for winning this first challenge is 3 images of your choice.
Second, we have Crafty Sentiments Design with a prize of 3 digital images of your choice.
Next is Eureka Stamps with a prize of 5 images of your choice.
And finally, we have Milk Coffee with a prize of 5 digital images of your choice.
So, let's get on with it. I used an image from Milk Coffee called "Madeline with Retro Outfit". I tried a new technique using watercolor pencils to make a striped background on watercolor paper.
Stamp: Milk Coffee digital image
Sentiment: stickers from my stash and my computer
Coloring Medium: Crayola Colored Pencils, Gamsol, Sakura Glitter Pens
Cardstock: Colorbok, Recollections
Paper: The Paper Studio, watercolor paper
Embellishments: button from my stash
Tools: Fiskars Trimmer, ATG Gun, glue dots, Spellbinders Classic Circles and Scalloped Circles
I hope y'all will check out our new challenge blog and maybe even create with some of those new tools and products you received for Christmas. Have a wonderful Saturday and stay warm. :) God bless y'all.
