I will be participating in the CROPPED Event this September with Megan from Above Rubies Studio. Don’t know about the CROPPED event? Click HERE to get more details.
Inside the Mystery Box that you receive is one of Megan’s DVD’s, and for the FIRST CHALLENGE you have to watch part of the DVD and use one of the projects she demonstrates for inspiration for YOUR challenge project. This does not mean you have to make the SAME EXACT project she makes! Inspiration can mean anything . . . use the technique she teaches out, the colors, the overall layout/sketch or the stamp she uses . . . just watch the tutorial on the DVD and let the inspiration come.
I do not consider myself a stamper. Card maker and scrapbooker, yes, but stamping is really just something I normally do with a sentiment stamp to finish off the card I made. So this project is a bit of a challenge for me since it involves more stamping and playing with inks then I normally do. I was worried that my card would not turn out very good. I used the technique that Megan shows for this project to create what will be the background image for my project. I was going for a sky with a couple of clouds look . . . here is how it turned out . . .
Now today I plan to try to work on the next phase . . . turning this into the background for my first challenge project! I hope it turns out as well as the idea I have in my head!
I love the way that turned out. The colors are beautiful!
