For this card, I followed the sketch on 365 Cards. I doubt once school starts that I will be able to complete more than one challenge on 365 Cards each week, but for the past month, I have totally enjoyed the inspiration I find there!
This card uses another of Penny's digi stamps. (She just released some new ones over the weekend - you should take a peek!) I used my CTMH watercolor pencils and blending pen to color it. I am enjoying coloring images ... and hopefully, my skills will improve as I continue to practice! :)
It also satisfies the Use It! challenge for this week:
- My new technique was using waxy flax as thread. OMW -- I think I'm in love. Waxy flax was so much easier that embroidery floss. I'll have to look to see what other colors CTMH offers!
- My virgin stamp was from CTMH's Kid Power. OMW -- I bought that before I was a consultant and I have been a consultant for over 2 years. I guess it was about time that stamp met ink!
- And, the new paper is the card base. I had purchased white scored notecards from PTI a long long long time ago, but they sat in the drawer as I used up the sets I had bought from Michaels. Well, I finished my last pack from Michaels and opened the PTI set. OMW -- if you don't have these as your card bases, you are missing out. The quality of this paper -- it's like comparing 250 count bedsheets to 900 thread count bedsheets. I'm hooked, after just one card!
