I’ve been trying to get my craft on this weekend and it just wasn’t happening like I wanted it too. I had high hopes for MANY Christmas cards for the current Paper Crafts magazine call. Alas, I just couldn’t get into the holiday spirit. Thankfully, I squeaked out 2 cards, but I don’t have high hopes. I just wasn’t on my game.
After struggling, I just gave up and looked for some challenges to inspire me. I think my mojo was mad I tried to do holiday cards out of season. Ha. So what better than SPRING to bring me out of my winter blues.
Hero Arts has the PERFECT challenge going on for March.
I’ve combined the color and spring challenge into one.
I wanted the look of doodling or a drawing in a notebook. So, I stamped the ledger background first and then the flowers on top. I also liked the idea of ‘chalk’ coloring, so used some Prismacolor pencils to achieve that look. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’m not an expert, by any means, on coloring (with markers or pencils).
I’m also submitting this to the Simon Says challenge since anything goes this week.
Talk about easy peasy.
