Day One - 30 Day Coloring Challenge 2

Hello Friends! Today is the first day of the new 30 Day Coloring Challenge, I hope you've decided to join in, if you do, please leave me your blog address in the comments, so I can buzz by and see what you're up to.

I usually take time off from creating during the Summer, but I couldn't resist joining in on another fun coloring challenge. To read more about the challenge please click HERE.

Ok. On to today's color share. I used a digital image from From the Heart Stamps. I just fell in love with this little pig and his pile of cupcakes. I decided to print two and make one for him and one for her.

I printed the images onto smooth white card stock and just had fun coloring with my Copic markers. I used my Hex Chart that I purchased from Sandy Allnock to help with my color selections. LOVE that tool! This digital stamp included a sentiment and a row of cupcakes. I printed those off for the inside of my card.

I printed the row of cupcakes in gray so that one could still write over it with no problem. Then, I just assembled the cards. I added chunky glitter to the frosting, I wanted it to look like salted caramel frosting and I added Glossy Accents to the cherries.

These cards are 4 x 4 in size and I used the Stitched Square dies from Simon Says Stamp to die cut them.

So that is it for me today. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate the visit!

Oooh Barb, I'm sooooo happy to see that you are going to share the Coloring Challenge with us. Your first project is fantastic. What a cute piggie and those cupcakes look scrumptious! Way to start off with a bang. Oh and thanks for the tip about printing off images for the inside of the card in gray. Super idea! Hugs!!
