New tools = Challenge participation!
Hello! I bought some new stuff so I decided to play! FINALLY, I have some good coloring tools! I decided to follow the sketch for Mojo Monday, Cute Card Thursday's challenge "Stitch in Time" and loosely followed a "recipe" on WOJ's challenge. I started with a bright yellow base. I layered a striped paper. I adhered an orange ribbon across the card. Then a strip of blue cardstock layered with a different patterned paper. A burnt orange cardstock with another patterned paper layered next. Next, I stamped the Whimsy Stamps Giraffe and colored him with water colored pencils in yellow, orange and brown and blended. I highlighted with a white paint pen. I stamped stitching with a CTMH stamp. I layered this image onto the same base yellow. I then stamped the SU sentiment "wish big" on white, edged in orange and mounted on the base yellow punched with the SU scalloped punch. I used the paint pen to draw stitching through the ribbon. Finally, I tied a piece of hemp twine through an orange button and glued to the bottom corner. Thanks for stopping by! I am sure I'll have new stuff later today...since it's raining. Again.
