But I do appreciate all the beautiful work others do!
So.. while I was searching for inspiration, I remembered my friends at the Hero Arts Flickr site, and paid them a visit. And low and behold, I landed on a 24 hour scramble! Ta Da!
There's nothing like a challenge to get me motivated.
Here are the challenges:
Kathy's 30 Day Coloring Challenge
Hero Arts Scramble #144
Here are my photos and steps:
|I started by stamping a few images with different color Stazon Inks|
|I worked on one of the Hero Arts 657780 images. My colored image is on the left, the stamp is in the middle and the die to cut it out with is on the right. My pens are shown below them.|
|Close up of my image. I wasn't worried about going out of the lines because of the die||. See? I don't color!|
|My image added to a card I put together. Yes. Brown. Just felt right.|
|A little side view to capture the depth, the use of Versmark for the snowflakes, and the glitter tree|
But, since crafting counts as therapy, it was time well spent!
