I Feel Like Such a Rebel – PMDC-032

I love Pixel Maven’s DigiChallenge… I love creating digitally… but this week I feel like a total rebel, because my submission to the challenge is totally traditional.

I think you can blame it on the giddiness created by the fact that now that the studio is completed, I can actually get to my papers!

The ladies have a great sketch challenge this week, and I used it to create a home decor piece that can be framed or set on an easel.

Below is my take on the challenge.

Dynamic Duos Challenge No. 52

Dyanmic Duos is celebrating their ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

In celebration this week’s challenge is to create a project using one of their PAST COLOUR COMBOS. I opted to use the color combo from DD#13 Early Espresso & Crumb Cake.

My all time favorite stamp is Definitely Decorative Avian Toile. It is truly elegant, and I have used it many times, but never for an easel card. This week I decided to combine all three, the color challenge, my favorite stamp and easel card. Below is what I came up with. Love the result!

I can’t wait to see your take on this challenge. Happy Anniversary to the Dynamic Duos Team, and thank you for your continued artistic inspiration!

Happy Crafting!
