Spring has sprung ATC ~ Craftitude Challenge #63
Well, the good news is that we are getting rain instead of the snow we got twice this week. No hint of flowers poking their noses out of the ground yet but at least I can see the ground...Bonus! It's time for a new challenge at Craftitude this fortnight. Our themes for Challenge #63 are Anything Goes OR Spring has sprung (spring or Easter images or colours). Our wonderful sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More. I chose to feature this adorable image called, Ms. Cutie Bear, colouring her with Prismacolor pencils. I used my fuzzy bear technique of layering tiny strokes for her fur and added white paint pen dots on her dress and the pink flowers. Ms. Cutie was fussy cut and then matted in black cardstock to allow her to stand out from the background. She was popped up on foam tape for dimension.
The background for this ATC was a scrap of DCWV's Collage Art paper matted on black cardstock with a faux stitched edge. Two little buttons, a dragonfly and a bee, were added to the garden scene. The word Spring was printed from the computer and matted in black. Simple design, letting Ms Cutie do all of the heavy lifting to make it work :)
Thanks for visiting today. If you get a chance, pop over to the Craftitude Challenges blog to see the awesome inspiration provided by the rest of the DT for the Anything Goes/Spring Has Sprung challenge. Hope you'll play along with us.
I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:
As You Like It ~ #25 Favourite Stitching (Faux because I can put it so close to the edge without going off)
Creative Knockouts ~ #33 Furry or Feathery Friends
Delightful Challenges ~ Bloom (include a flower)
digistamps4joy ~ #90 Easter or Spring
The Paper Shelter ~ #154 Spring is Here
Life is good; so is art.
