A Kiss to Make It Better - In2stamps June Challenge

Hello. Happy Friday!

A bit late with this. A new month--Happy June!--which means a new monthly challenge for In2stamps. The theme for this month is Get Well. This will be the last challenge before summer vacation--taking a break in July & August.


You can get all the details of the challenge at the In2stamps Challenges site here. And check out the fabulous cards of the other DT members.


This is what you could win:

6" x 6" patterned papers of Basic Grey's Indian Summer
3 In2stamps stamps of your choice


Challenge is open till 1st of July.

I am trying something completely new to me. I have coloured my image this time in coloured pencils. I am a complete novice at this. I have wanted to try using my Prismacolours pencils for who knows how long. I have been putting it off. In fact, I have had my set of coloured pencils, oh... over 2 years, but haven't used it. I have done my colouring exclusively with my markers. Until now. I like this very much and will be experimenting more with it.

Thanks for dropping by. And have a wonderful weekend...woo hoo.


Stamps: In2stamps Mommy's Caring from the Get Well Collection (avaliable at the In2stamps on-line store), Autumn Leaves Stampology Block 1 clear stamp set.
DP's: Chatterbox Designer Paper Happy Bloom.
Tools: Coluzzle templates circles and ovals, Martha Stewart border punch.
Misc.: Queen & Co. pearls chocolate delight, Recollections Autumn pearls, Tim Holtz distress ink pad vintage photo, Ranger Adirondack raised felt dye pad sunset orange.
Medium: Prismacolour coloured pencils.
