Color Challenge at Just for Fun’s January Card Challenge!

I want to wish you a very Happy New Year!  December just flew by.  I hope you had a lovely holiday season.  This is one of the many times of year that I need Thank You cards.  Just for Fun’s January challenge is a fun color challenge!

As most of you know, I am a happy member of Just for Fun Rubber Stamp’s design team.  I do like their original-styled stamps (and that they come in unmounted, mounted and wood-mount - my favorite type of stamp is rubber on cling foam), but want you to know that you do not have to use their stamps in order to participate in the challenges.  So if you are looking for some fun ways to help you get more cards made this coming year, I hope you will do our challenges! The prize winner is random, which I think is a great way to encourage crafters to join in!

For my card, I first scribbled blue and purple water-based markers onto watercolor paper.  I sprayed it heavily with water to soften the color.  After that dried, I then colored onto my snowflake stamp with the same blue and purple markers, sprayed that with water and stamped it.  The differences between the purple and blue are a bit more obvious in real life.  

Supplies:  Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Framed Snowflake, Tombow Water-Based markers, watercolor paper, Cheery Lynn Designs Thank You die, Darice Snowflake Folder, White Pigment ink (which I pounced on top of the purple paper to bring out the embossing)

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope to see you again soon!
