Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge for our August.

Our theme is Take a Technique!

This months challenge is going to be super fun!!  Its all about Pens and Pencils!

This means using your pens and pencils on your projects!! You could draw or sketch a design, or use your pens and pencils for coloring.  Copics, Distress Markers, Spectrum Noirs, Watercolor Pencils, Paint Pens, and markers, whatever floats your boat!!  You could add detail with fine liner pens, gel pens or smudgy Stabilo pencil…..the only limit is your imagination!! Remember there, MUST be real stamping on your projects.  Digital images CAN be used, but must be used alongside rubber/acrylic stamping!

So with allll of that being said.  On to my card.  I LOVE how it turned out!

Take a look at my card:

Love (TIMI)

I used WPlus9 Doodle Buds Stamp Set for this months card!!  It is so appropriate.  The flowers look hand drawn don’t they.  Nope its a stamp!!! Wait the stem looks hand drawn too!!  I love it!!

I used Prima Watercolor Pencils and a waterbrush to achieve the watercolor look on my flowers.  Then I fussy cut them out and adhered them to my card with dimensionals.  I stamped the stem using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink. I die cut the Love from WPlus9 Love Showers Layers Die out of black cardstock.

Nice and easy!!

Now its your turn to play along with us.

We have a great prize pack for you.

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for August is: Chocolate Baroque




Stamp Plate Artistic Affirmations

Our second winner is our Design Winner. This winner is chosen by our DT, who all vote for their favorite design from all of the entries. This winner will have their winning project published in Craft Stamper Magazine, they will have a GDT slot for an upcoming challenge, and will also feature in their very own Winners Profile blog post!

Now if that isn’t a reason to play along I’m not sure what is!!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
