Our First Challenge

Today is the launch of Crafting When You Can Challenges ! How exciting for all of us on the Design Team and I hope for all of you as well ! Our first challenge is being sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs, where you can find lots of fun and different digital stamps. Thank you, Fresh Brewed Designs !

Because this is my 1st challenge as part of a design team, I decided to really push myself and try something completely new for me .. Paper Piecing.. I attached my 2 patterned papers to my copy paper with removable adhesive and printed the image once on each paper. I cut out the parts I wanted from each one and attached to my image with a Zig Glue pen. Then I colored the rest with Copics and cut it all out... Easy !

The rest of the card uses all Stampin Up paper and corner punch. The edge punch is Martha Stewart. I sponged all the edges with Stampin Up Rich Razzleberry ink, added some green rhinestones and Voila... My 1st Design Team Challenge card!

I hope you like it and please leave and and all questions in the comment section... I love comments! 

As always, thanks for stopping by :)
