Last week's Just A Scrappin' Challenge was fabulous. I would love just a little bit of sun out here in the mid-west, so this week's challenge is perfect for me. The challenge is to create a card, layout or project using spring colors.
I love challenges because they push me to learn new techniques and to think outside of my comfort zone. I recently discovered Papertrey Ink's "Make It Mondays." This particular challenge has been a great asset in helping me to grow as a card marker using the tools I have on hand, but have somehow pushed to the back of my crafting space. This week, watercoloring embossed images. I did not have watercolor markers in my crafting arsenal, so I substituted with Stampin' Up watercolor pencils.
I hope you enjoy both of these challenges. I know I did.
