Young Crafter’s Unite! Challenge #1

Welcome to the very first Young Crafters Unite Challenge!

Our first challenge is to color a stamped image.  Since this is something I do a lot I thought I would pick one image to focus on and let the rest of the card become a backdrop.  I choose the lovely Angel Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm.

She is just so sweet.  I colored her with copics and added some iridescent glitter to her little wings.  I cut the cloud shapes out with a Papertrey ink die and then embossed them with an embossing folder.  I accented the edges of the clouds and the stamped background with stickles and gave her a pearl on her bow as a finishing touch.

Be sure you check out all the other amazing design team creations.

  3. CHARI!!! There is something utterly fab about this – it's so beautiful!!!! The coloring – oh my, and the textured clouds (I love those Papertrey clouds!!) – amazing!

  4. You have done a fab job with your coloring! Such fun detail you added to the clouds with the embossing…….cloud dies are everywhere! I LOVE them all! Have you checked out Lil' Inker Cloud dies? They are my favorite!

  5. Chari, you seriously rocked this card. What gets me is the angel's hair. It's so pretty! I'm still working on learning how to color hair, and this is just perfect! Love you color choices and that you're using that new JBS ink. 😉 Thanks so much for being on our design team! We're so happy to have you.
