Seems like I have been gone for so long. We are back from celebrating our holidays and it is time for the first challenge of the year for TMITA. Patty gave us a color challenge this week to use with Nina's cute Painted Pony digi image. This is a free image at the There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes blog this week. Hope you will go over and check out all the other designer's blogs then download this cute image and join in on the challenge. We have two new Design Team Members joining us this month: Sue Walsh and Patti Gilliam. The Guest Designer this month is Lisa Foster.
Painted Pony Color Challenge:
Have you ever had an idea on how you wanted to make a card and it turned out completly different? Well, that is what happened to me with this one. Since this was a color challenge I was trying to make this pony very colorful using the color challenge inks but was never satisfied with my painting. I decided to change gears and just color him with the Dusty Durango ink and highlight certain areas with Suede. He is not all that colorful, but he is cute. I used reinkers and a water brush to paint the pony.
I found this cute dp in my stash that was close to dusty durango and crushed curry so decided to use it and mount it on a piece of suede cs. I still needed to use always artichoke so cut a long strip of always artichoke cs and used scissors to cut blades of grass for the pony to stand in. I love the swirls in the dp and thought it would be cute to have the pony playing with some butterflies. Silly huh, but looks like the pony is having lots of fun! Since I had butterflies, I had to add some punched flowers. The butterflies and flowers are punched out of crushed curry cs.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you will go over and download this cute free image and join in on the challenge.
