This week’s challenge is being issued by our Trendsetter of the Week, Kim at There She Goes! She wants us to create a card that uses NO MARKERS…no Copics, no Tombow Markers…NO MARKERS AT ALL! Can you believe it? Reach for those pastels, colored pencils, or other coloring mediums that you’ve been neglecting and show them some love this week! And as always, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Now, I love my Tombows and it's rare that I put them down but if challenged... I guess I have to go to something else right? So I pulled out my watercolor pencils.... I don't use them often enough but when I do... I love em....I've had the Sweet Pea mini set from There She Goes for quite some time but I haven't used it... I know, I know... it's horrible to think of un-inked stamps... but un-inked no more.... And guess what!!! It's on sale this week for our "Out with the Old" Sale. The layout for my card comes from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge at Karen Giron's blog (one of our new Trendsetters at TSG). Because sweet peas are so gentle and soft looking, I decided to use some of the softer DP's from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose collection - I've had it since shortly after it came out and this is the first time I've used it. A lot of firsts for me today it looks like right?
