Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #62

for week #62 is a project with a non-stamped sentiment, such as handwritten, die cut words, etc. For my third week as Guest Designer I've created...


a card using a digital stamp of this
beautiful crane from McMahon Five Designs.com. Prior to this month I had not done any coloring on any type of stamping, and I must say I now am hooked.


I used Tim Holtz Distress Inks...
Black Soot (very watered down), Peeled Paint, Antique Linen, Wild Honey and Tumbled Glass. The papers are Ivory and Medium Gray cardstock with Creative Imagination "Provencial Fleur" and Webster's Pages "Waiting for Santa" (who says you can't use it year round) DP. My "Thank You" sentiment is a metallic sticker.


I made the pins using beads from
my stash. I Am Roses flowers and skeleton leaves, Recollections mini roses, punched oak leaves and feather tips.
Wishing you a pleasant Tuesday!

Wow! Linda, this is beautiful! Love how you colored the image and water. Can't believe you've never colored before. I agree, stamping and coloring is very addictive. I love your pretty flowers, papers, and pins, too.
