Challenges are my comfortzone, it was where I started making cards and it is there, among other places, I gather my inspiration. I have lately enhanced my stash with some wonderful things and I also have some that have become a little bit neglected. So I put a real challenge to myself. I was going to, in one card do both My Favorite Things Challenges, I would also use some products from my latest shopping spree over at mftstamps.com and I would use some of the older products in my stash. Below you can see the sketch and colour combo from Sketch Challenge #362 and Color Challenge #82.
I happen to have the Sampler Packs for the MFT Colored Cardstock but haven’t used them that much, I do love the cardstock but lately I’ve been mostly made water colored backgrounds and all my cardstock that wasn’t white has sort of just been sitting there, so for my older products I chosed my cardstock and decided that my challenge there was that I would use all the colors that was in the color challenge.
I followed the sketch but took some artistic freedoms, I put the sentiments a little wonky and chosed to use the square mod stitched dies instead of circular dies. The characters are colored with Copics and Polychromos onto Neenah Cardstock, which I love using when I combine pencils and copics.
I made mini scenes in the little mod squared. The top one has snowflakes and supposed to look like it’s snowing. The bottom one I used the greenish paper together with some Scenic Safari Dies and a white gel pen to make t look like there was a little bit of snow on some green hills.
