HMCR Blogiversary #4 - "Freestyle"

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Do you know what today is?

That's right . . . not only is it the 2nd Saturday of the month, but it's time for a new challenge HIMCR's Hiding In My Craft Room's Blogiversary #4 challenge.  HIMCR is 5-years old!!!  And to celebrate it, we are having five (5) challenges this week.

So HIMCR's Blogiversay #4 challenge this week is "Freestyle" . . . meaning anything you want. "  Just have FUN with it!!!

The sponsor is Sweet Stamps:

For this challenge, I decided to use some of my UmWowStudio chippies along with my PanPastels and "Hello" mini stamp set from Papertrey Ink.  Here's how it turned out:

Ray background chippie (used as mask) from UmWowStudio
Heavely White paper from PaperTemptress
Yellow mica/metallic paper from PaperTemptress
Hansa Yellow PanPastel
"Hello" mini stamp set by Papertrey Ink
"Orange Zest", "Summer Sunrise", and "True Black" dye ink from Papertrey Ink
misc. orange gems

I used the Sunburst chippie as a mask and colored with my PanPastel to get the sun's rays.  I then added my "Hello" by inking it with both "Orange Zest" and "Summer Sunrise" inks to give it a bit more definition. Added my flair, clouds and gems . . . Voila! I was done.  I was VERY excited as to how this card turned out.  It brought a "sunny" spot into a dreary, rainy past few days. :)

Remember you have one (1) week to get your projects turned in so you can be eligible for the weekly prize(s).

Till the next time I'm up in the night.
