Hello Friends! Welcome to DAY 2 of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I am so excited to bring you a Blog Hop featuring some very talented artists and friends. I know that each designer will wow you today with their talent … that was my plan to give you all a huge hit of inspiration for Day 2. (I have so many amazing friends that are colorists and I plan to feature more of them in the future.)
Not only will you be inspired but, I have a very special coupon code from Online Card Classes & a sweet giveaway at the bottom of my post! To start at the beginning of the hop click HERE to go to one of the most amazing people I know Jennifer McGuire.
Today I have my first interactive card combining three stamp companies. I wanted to feature each stamp company that is in the hop today. The background was stamped with WPlus9 “Amaryllis” stamp and watercolored with some pencils and a dove blender marker (to help blend the colors) . I am so in love with this “Loads of Fun” stamp set from Lawn Fawn. It was super fun to combine Simon’s “Stacking Animals” as a fun element in my card. The “New Beginnings” yoga girl I colored during my last challenge and I was so happy she found a home today lol.
Finding a good spot for a sentiment is always a challenge for me. Sometimes with desperation an idea is born. It’s super easy to create a pull out sentiment by cutting a slit in your base layer. Various ink was added with a rag to get a realistic texture to the towels in the laundry basket.
Go HERE to read more about the 30 Day Coloring Challenge and here if you want to see how I prepared. If you want to share what your creating go to DAY 1 and scroll to the bottom of the post. You will find a blue Inlinkz tab to link up your coloring.
Below is the hop line up in case you come across a broken link. Please take the time to give some love to my friends. They are so busy and just wanted to support me and to inspire you today.
