Hi Welcome to a fabulous Thursday! Today I have a card and a couple of challenges to bring to you so sit back grab some java and let's dive right in.
Over at Creative Knockouts, where I am part of the Design Team, we are starting a challenge that is all about texture! I love this challenge theme and in my opinion you do not see it floating around too much. The guidelines are simply to use texture on your project, which includes embossing, textured papers, ect... there are so many options! As always we have a wonderful sponsor, this week it happens to be A Day For Daisies and they are giving one lucky winner a $12.00 gift card to be used in their store.
So, I know you are excited to see what I came up with. Well it was a hard choice since so many of their digital stamps are lovely, but go figure, I happened to fall madly in love with their Puppy Love stamp. As many of you know my son adopted his very first dog this past Christmas and I have been so in love with the trials and tribulations of a preschooler and a brand new puppy... however they each have a special place in my heart so this stamp was perfect.
Is that not the cutest stamp ever!! I know I love it too. Here is a close up.
Ok so I am getting a lot better at coloring!! I told you that would come. I just recently received some watercolor pencils and I fell in love with those too. I know there's a lot of love going around in this post. But seriously, these pencils make it so easy to color in beautifully (of course with my shading pen.) I hope to find some time next week to show a little video showcasing how easy it is to color in an image and achieve proper shading every time.
In addition to playing along with Creative Knockouts I am also entering this beautiful card into the sketch challenge at Heart to Heart. Which features a very lovely and very easy sketch to duplicate.
You have two weeks from today to play along with the Textures challenge at Creative Knockouts and you have all month to play along with Heart to Heart so make sure to grab some paper and get crafty!
