ADFD New Release - New Challenge - New World


Happy Friday!!  Whew, this has been a long week, but it is worth it because I have today off!!  Woohoo!  My poor neglected house is calling for me to give it a little T.L.C.  *gigl*  I will do that in a few, but right now I want to share with you what's "new" over at ADFD starting today.  We have a new release, a new challenge and a new world.  This week's challenge is to use a "new" technique that you've not used with digis before!

I have been playing with watercolor pencils for a little while now.  I've only created one card using them and found that they are a nice change to Copics.  I also recently discovered chalk.  I found that using a water color brush (from SU) and chalk could also be a neat way to change things up. 

I went over the eyebrows and the spots on the Girafees with the a Q-tip and chalk and then went back over them to blend in the colors using the Water Color brush.  Be careful, you want to test it out before applying it to your project, because too much water will mess it up.  I also went over the Giraffees' spots with a Glaze pen to make it shiny.  I used my watercolor pencil to go over the dots in the background.  If you are using chalk it works best on dark paper.  Therefore, I utilized a paper bag as my dp and it was already cut to 81/2 x 11(bought it online) .  This is an excellent way to recycle and a cool twist to Kraft paper.  I created the sentiment and believes it works well with the image.

You can pick this adorable (and several others) here at the store.  Also, make sure to enter our challenge for a chance to win a FREE image of your choice.

Now get to creating,

Remember:  There are no mistakes in card making, only opportunities for creativity!
