YNSC37 - Your Next Stamp Challenge!

Hi Everyone,

Happy Wednesday! I am so very excited about this post today. This is my first Your Next Stamp Challenge as a DT Member, and I have been CRAZY excited about it LOL! Today's Challenge over at the YNS Challenge Blog is to use the color Blue in any part of your creation.

Here is the card I created.

The image I used is Grasshopper Gloria. Is that not the cutest name ever... EPPP! :) As soon as I saw this image I had to use it right away. I had a blast creating this card. I used my Copics Airbrush System to do both the grass mound and clouds for the background of the image, as well as color the main image. The papers are from The Paper Studio, and soon as I saw the Scale, Tie Dye and the Leaf Embossed paper I knew it was a perfect match! The sentiments on both outside and inside the card I created myself on my PC.

I added Stickles to several areas that can be better seen in the close up shots.

I even added Stickles to her eyes for Eyeshadow LOL! How yummy is that Tie Dye paper close up?! *Gasps* Hehehe.

I finally finished it off with a bow and a brad :)

We would love to see you all join in on the Challenge. You have until Monday March 14th to join in on the fun. We have 2 wonderful prizes for you to win.
