Another class I'm offering is actually just for the guys.
So lets kick the month off with our monthly creative challenge.
COLOUR YOUR IMAGES
I would love to see how you add a touch of colouring to your projects - cards, scrapbook layouts, pocket page cards - using either watercolour pencils, blender pens, aqua painters, Stampin' Write markers, brayers, daubers, sponges, spritzer, whatever....really the possibilities are endless!
To enter this months challenge, to be entered to win the monthly giveaway, you can add a picture to the Create & Share Facebook Group
I've shared these videos before - but just in case you missed it Stampin' Up! shows a few of the colouring techniques with these videos:
A faux watecolour technique:
Using watercolour pencils:
One of the reasons I love the Inside the Lines Speciality Designer Paper, this months giveaway prize and a Sale-a-Bration item, is because it allows me to add the colour. Adult colouring has become very popular in the last year and this goes perfectly with that trend.
Check back soon for more inspiration for this months challenge!
