Wonderful Wintery Wednesday!

It's Wonderful Wednesday time!! We hope you can play along!!  As always....it's ANYTHING GOES!! Break out your Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and get crafty!!
It's cold outside and that makes me wanna use the sweet little polar bears from Shake it up Polar Bears once more.  I think they like to come out to play when it's cold outside..... So, here it goes....
I used some snowy DSP from The Paper Studio and pink satin ribbon from Recollections.  The sequins are from my collection (yeah, I have A LOT) and a few white Nuvo drops.  The pink haze is worn lipstick from Distress Oxide Ink.  The little bear is colored with my trusty Copic markers! 

We want EVERYONE to be able to play along so your submission can use ANY stamp and can be any theme, any style, any design and it can be a card, a scrapbook page, an altered item....you name it!! It must be a NEW creation and you can enter on this post until November 28th at midnight! At the end of the month one random winner will be chosen from all the submissions for the whole month and will receive a $20 Gift Card to the shop!!! What do you think.....wanna WIN?? Let's see your krafty stuff!! Tootles!

TGF Single Layer

It has been a long long long (very long) time since I have entered a challenge over at The Greeting Farm. ..... and since I got new pencils and a new TGF set... I figured what the heck....why not!?!? I surfed on over to their blog and figured out that the challenge was single layer cards...... wow.... seriously?

THIS is really gunna be a challenge for me.... like REALLY challenging!  Those of you who know me know that I layer my cards... A LOT!!! I Love DSP and layers and more layers and then perhaps just another layer..... so... deep sigh.... here I go....

I stamped the Image, colored it in, threw it away, stamped it again, colored it in.... tossed it again.... hehehehe this happened once more and then I got smart... I stamped the Image, Stamped a mask, did the cool Oxide Ink background thing, spritzed it with water, blotted it, let it dry, then set to coloring.

Ok, so pencils are new to me, I have... wait for it... 20!!!! Awe yeah baby! A whole 20 pencils... but I love all 20 of them (and the rest of the set will be here tomorrow)!  I colored the sweet little nurse and  steeled myself as I put this one, single, layer on the card base.  Then I stepped back..... and smiled..... OMG I LOVE IT!!!!!!

I added some clear, glittery, Nuvo drops and the sentiment (then let it dry).  I'm so so so so glad I did this, I could really learn to love these single layer cards!  Hooray for challenges that make you think, and make you reach outside of your comfort zone! I'm so excited! 

Thanks for checking in, have a wonderful Turkey day! Tootles!
