Our challenge this fortnight is Black and White and ONE additional color. What color will you pick?

This challenge is being done along with the new Double Trouble Challenge. They’re challenges run on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, which coincided with our challenge, so we’ve joined up with them!

If you decide to link your project on both challenges, you have a chance of be a randomly selected winner at The Crafter’s Cafe and also  a randomly selected winner of Double Trouble. That gives you a chance of winning one of five prizes.

The sponsor I’m working with this challenge is Wink Wink Ink. And, I went wiht Precious Baby Penguin for my project. I colored this guy as a baby Empire penguin, so chose orange as my additional color. Isn’t he cute??

TCCCB – Keep it Simple!

Hello, welcome to the July 1st challenge with The Crafter’s Cafe Challenge Blog!

Twice a month we roll out fantastic challenges for your to play along with and we work with great sponsors so you get to see art from a wide variety of talented artists.

Our challenge this fortnight is a Keep it Simple! That’s right, make is a CAS (Clean and Simple) card for your entry!

The sponsor I’m working with this challenge is Mari’s Digi’s and I was thrilled to work with Super Girl Versao. To keep it simple, I decided to print the image right on my background paper and then sponge around it.

The sentiment was done using my MISTI, which allowed me to make sure it turned out nice and dark against the sponging. And then, a few lovely blue starts to finish it off.
