I am just so, so happy the OLW challenges are back! They make me step out of my comfort zone, they make me practice, and they give me cards I needed to make anyways.
So, this week's challenge was:
COLOR IT! Stamp an outline image and color it using any coloring medium you want: colored pencils, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, paint, Copics, Bics, Sharpies, markers of any kind, or your kid's box of Crayola crayons. Doesn't matter...just COLOR IT! Remember keep it to one layer.
I am also submitting this for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 169.
And, here's my result:
I used a lovely Penny Black image and a Memory Box sentiment. Colored it with my Copics.
Here's the same image/sentiment matted and a little vintage-y ribbon.
In my first attempt on the challenge, the sentiment was angled, but, with some careful trimming, I was able to salvage the card front (it was Gina K cardstock, after all...not worthy of the trashcan) and the card back will be used on something else. I added a small border strip (hidden by the ribbon) and voila! Another birthday card! Cardstock by PTI, border punch by SU, ribbon is Hug Snug seam binding dyed and crinkled by me.
Thanks for peeking!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
