WEDNESDAY, March 9, 2011-African Veldt
Hi ! I have to tell you I love this awesome set!! For my card here, I sponged the sky with Tangelo and Cantaloupe by Memento. The ground is Desert sand. I used a colored pencil to pull up some grasses in the BG. The card stock is MFP and DP is from my stash. All supplies used to complete this card is from MFP. The images are click-able for a larger view.


Here is my next project. A coaster set that I got using a 50% off coupon at Michaels. A set of four and the holder. On the back side is where you slide the photo of your choice in. The sponging was done the same as the card above. The images were colored with Prisma Pencils. Below is a photo of each one. This one is in the holder.











Wait till you see all the amazing creation the rest of the team has to show you.
