Let's Ink It Up - First Challenge Ever!!!!!

Hello! I'm very excited to show you the first ever challenge over at Let's Ink It Up! This is a blog challenge dedicated to using your rubber stamps! So we'd like you to get inky with us!

Our first challenge is one most people like, it is Anything Goes with a Twist......the twist is there must be the color yellow somewhere on your project! I hope you all come along and play with us, who know you could win something from our lovely sponsor Scrapbook Boutique!

Scrapbook Boutique is giving one lucky winner a $20 voucher to their store! Awesome!

For my project I took a little inspiration from Michelle Zindorf and did a brayering project. I inked and embossed the grass, then inked and embossed the bear. Then I brayered some yellow onto the top of the panel, followed by some orange and red right at the tippy top! I flipped it over and sponged some green at the bottom with the grass and some black around the edges. The bear is from Stampin' Up set Wildlife Reserve.

I entered this card into the following challenges:

Stampin' for the Weekend - anything goes
Paper Cutz - anything goes
ResQ Challenge - what rejuvenates you? (being outside does, but I'm sure the rush of adrenalin when you face that bear would do the trick! :)

So I hope we see all of you at the new challenge blog Let's Ink It Up!
