CSS Challenge Blog Hop

Good evening!

It's time for another CenterStage Spotlight Challenge Blog hop!




Hostess: Jessica Fick {Design Team Coordinator}
Theme:
Stamp and color the image on Patterned Paper
{ any occasion card acceptable, it doesn't have to be Christmas themed}
{ image may be cut out and layered, but must be stamped and colored on patterned paper}
Requirement: any GinaK Designs stamp set & Glitter
Bonus Challenge: decorate the inside of your card to coordinate




Here is a closeup of the bear.


I used Asela Hopkins "First Christmas" and Melanie Muenchinger "Festive Frame" both by Gina K Designs. I stamped the bear on 7 Gypsies DP and colored him using copic's. then I cut him out. I stamped the frame and cut out the oval.I colored the frame image with prisma colored pencils. I added glitter and to the center of the flowers green micro beads.

Be sure to check out the wonderful creations the other designers have to show you.


Enjoy the hop and thanks for stopping by.
