So enough about me, let's talk about the current challenge starting today at Addicted to Stamps and More! ATS&M Challenge#71 is ANYTHING GOES. We are very happy to have a new sponsor for this challenge - Sami Stamps - that is offering a wonderful prize for our challenge winner. Our DT member Nonni uses a lot of these images and I've admired them for quite some time. I've made a card using one of their great digital images called "Little Acorn Bird".
Couldn't resist this great fall image! I fussy-cut around the image, added some distressing with Soft Suede ink (Stampin Up), and a few candy dots for texture (SU as well). Did I mention that this is one of Sami Stamps recent freebies! Who doesn't love FREE??
I'm finding that I need more practice with the coloring of nature images. I'm not super happy with my color choice for the acorns - they turned out more grey than brown - but oh well, I'll live with it. Browns are hard for me. I'll just keep practicing until I feel comfortable with the color choices and blending to look "natural". Get it... nature - look "natural"? :o) LOL
The other lovely ladies of the ATS&M DT have also made some great projects to share with you during the ATS&M Challenge #71 - "Anything Goes". I hope that you'll go visit them too and then decide to play along with us. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today - sure glad that you did. 'Til next time... hugs and happy crafting! D
