Happy Wednesday! Today begins another great challenge at The Paper Shelter. This week’s challenge is CLEAN AND SIMPLE. Now if you think that “shaped cards” was difficult for me, guess again.. my cards are never clean and simple but I did give it my best!
The Paper Shelter offers such awesome prizes to challenge winners – this week Veronica and Pedro are offering you a prize of $20 Gift Certificate to spend on their website, as long as you have used one of The Paper Shelter images on your card, but even if you use another image, you can win 3 digi images of your choice!
For this challenge I selected “Learning is Fun”. I thought it fitting to choose her as returning to the classroom is just a couple of weeks away and I find myself already beginning to think about the upcoming school year..(deep breath…)
She is so adorable.. I love everything about her including those cool glasses. She is colored with copic markers and embellished with stickles, glamour dust and some glossy accents on her eyeglass lenses. What I especially love about THE PAPER SHELTER images is that many of them include the colored image (for a quick card or project), the digi image (for you to color any way you want) and some great design paper! So, I worked very closely with the colors on the already colored version and recreated it with my copic markers on the digi. I also stuck to this color scheme because I wanted to use the design paper that comes with the image. This one sheet is not sold separately but comes already coordinated with the digi image! How cool is that? The dp looks just like it came from a school girl’s notebook – full of doodles, math, writing and even some messy stains (bottom left corner)!
The sentiment is from the internet.. I knew I wanted to use this phrase from the Dr. Seuss book (Oh, The Places You’ll Go), and when I googled it, there it was with the background color perfectly coordinated with my colors! Flowers are from WOC and lovely ribbon, glitter buttons, and crystals from my stash.
Now won’t you hop over to The Paper Shelter blog to see what new images Veronica and Pedro just added to the store, and then join us for a fun challenge. Why not see what the DESIGN TEAM has created to inspire you to enter! Have a great day and thank you for your kind comments!
