Old and New Again!

It’s a new year, and the first challenge of 2015 at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This is so very exciting and we’d like to kick things off celebrating both old and new. Will you use an old favorite and pair it with a new supply? Try an old technique with a new stamp? However you feature old (or new) – we can’t wait to kick off this crafty year with you! I decided to step away from my favorite coloring medium and renew my love of other mediums.  I have a tutorial over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog today featuring the following:

Each project uses a different medium to color the image...

Can you guess?
If you pop over to the blog you can see what I used and how they differ in application and techniques.

A complete list of the products are on the post on Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge but I wanted to highlight that the main image is Stampendous Nestled Bird and the Sentiments are from the Impression Obsession In a Garden.

Come join in all the fun and play along for a chance to win a $50 gift voucher at Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Wonderful tutorial! Thanks for reminding me of all the techs I can mojo hit bottom after the holidays haha! Seeing your lovely creations with this birdie in the nest stamp gives me a little excited nudge to pull out MY stamp like this and color away!
