2 Challenges - One Card


This is a first for me, but I managed to combine two challenges on one card. First I used the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge 116. (See the sketch above.) The second challenge was for 365 Cards - Day 196 "Just a Touch". For it, we had to stamp with black on white and add "just a touch" of colour. I chose to use this Hanglar Stanglar image (was a rak), and just colour the pumpkins. I actually like how the little bit of colour behind the girl gives focus to her and to the pumpkins at the same time! This is something I normally would never have thought to try, thus another reason I love these challenges!

Card Details: Stamps - Hanglar Stanglar, Artemio (flourish); Flowers and Leaves - raks; Ribbon - Stampin' Up; CS - Recollections, Cricut Rainbow; Punch - MS Lace; CB Folder - Swirls. I coloured the image with pencil crayons.

Very cute card Dorie Ellen! I wouldn't have ever thought of just coloring part of the image but I like the look of it.
