Color Me Creative :: Guest Designer


Good morning!  I hope your weekend treated you well and that you got to spend some time doing what makes YOU happy!  I got to do a little stamping, and that always makes me happy!  Today I have a card to share with you that I created for my Guest Designing stint for the Color Me Creative  Classroom Challenge.

A few weeks ago a friend added me to the Color Me Creative Classroom Facebook Group, and I was introduced to the CMC network from there.  They host a bi-monthly challenge over there, and I decided to use some of my Peachy Keen Stamps and play along with their challenge.  I was both surprised and thrilled when I found out that my entry had been selected by their design team as the winner for that challenge, and that prize was a chance to be Guest Designer for the next challenge!  WOOHOO! 

So, here I am, and here's the card I created for this challenge, which is an Anything Goes Challenge, with the  optional twist to use bugs, butterflies, or reptiles in your projects.  

This image was provided by the CMC Challenge sponsor, Digital Delights by Louby Lou, and it was colored with my favorite medium, Copic markers.  I added some large self adhesive clear dots to the eyes to really make them pop.  I love the look it gives them IRL.   The paper was all from my scrap box except for the Stampin' Up! card stock that I used for the base of the card.  I added some Stardust Stickles to the colored spots on the frog, and rhinestones to the orange circle for a little bit of sparkle and bling.  


Drop by The Color Me Creative Classroom network to play along.  You WILL need to join the network as a member, and then join the Challenge Group, but that's no problem, because it's a great resource and place to find all kinds of inspiration.  ESPECIALLY if  you LOVE to color!!  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a great day and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
