Follow Along...

Sunday, January 15, 2012


Hey there, it's time for another fun challenge over at Pile It On! and this week we're all about fuzzy friends...we hope you'll dig out your favorite animal images and play along!  You have until January 21 to upload your project for a chance to win a $10 voucher from our sponsor, Di's Digi Downloads.

I just picked up this cool Our Craft Lounge set called Jungle Love and I've been wanting to get it inky.  Michelle from Memories of Time is having her first challenge...Be Mine Valentine Bingo and she's offering some awesome prizes!  She emailed me a couple days ago and challenged me to a blackout.  It was a little tricky and I had my doubts, but I pulled it off!  *woot*  Check it out...I was able to include glitter (card stock), pearls, Sparkly Fluff, ribbon, a heart, sponging, red, baker's twine AND Glossy Accents (on the lion's nose).  Whew...that's a lot!  LOL!  There's still time if you want to play along.  You only need a bingo to participate, but if you can make a blackout...even better!  Check out the MOT blog for more details.

Here's the inside...the monkey was masked and the sentiment heart was reverse masked then sponged.

Copic coloring:

Lion:  R30, Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11, YR24  Bird:  YG23, YG21, R30, Y17  Inside image:  R30, E53, E51, E50, E19, E18, E17, E15, E37, E35, E34, YG23, YG21, YG95, YG07, YG06, YG05, Y11, Y04, Y02, Y00, YR30, R0000

I love that you did a black out for the challenge. Like I said, if it can be done, you would do it.
