Week 24 at Sunny Challenges

January 22, 2012

I cannot believe how quickly the weeks seem to be passing.  It only seems like yesterday I posted the last Sunny Challenge.  Our weekly challenges will now run from Sunday morning until Friday night and our Ray of Sunshine will be posted on Saturday.  This way our weekly challenge will always be the first post.  We hope that this makes it easier for some of you to find our challenges.

This week’s challenge has been set by me and as well as using the sketch each project needs to the use the stampset Under the Big Top.  I received this set when I attended the Brisbane Regionals last year and as you can image it wasn’t one I would have picked to buy – you know how much I love colouring images – so I thought I might get some inspiration from all of you.

Anyway, here is my example.  I attached a piece of Early Expresso card stock to scored and folded Cajun Craze card stock.  I stamped the lion image using Early Expresso ink onto the top right hand corner of the Early Expresso card stock.  I cut two pieces of Designer paper from the Well Worn Designer Series Paper, matted each of them onto Cajun Craze card stock and attached them to the card front.  I stamped the lion image from the Under the Big Top stamp set onto Whisper White card stock using Stazon Jet Black ink.  I used Soft Suede, Early Expresso and Night of Navy Stampin’ Write Markers to colour the image.  One of the things I remember most from Regionals was the way they showed us to use our markers to colour.  You take one of your Clear Mount Blocks and scribble the marker onto it and then use your Blender Pen to pick up the colour and add it to your image.  For some reason this allows me to colour an image and feel satisfied with the result.  I cut the image using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch and attached it to a Cajun Craze 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle.  The image is attached to the card front using dimensionals.

I know this is relatively simple but I am looking forward to seeing what you can create.  If you need more inspiration then visit Shirley and Vicky and then Sunny Challenges to add your creation to Mr. Linky.  We appreciate all your support and love seeing the entries each week.

Bye for now, Kris.
