Blending Colors with Gamsol: CS Take It Make it Challenge

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with CS Take It Make It Design Team for our CS Take It Make It: Take a Stamp Challenge for the month of November.

This month’s theme is Take a Stamp!!  That means take any stamp and create something, anything goes!! Now if that isn’t easy, I’m not sure what is!!

Take a look at my card:

merry-christmas-timi

Here is a close up of the gingerbread man:

This Neat and Tangled Beary Merry stamp set is so cute and I had to use it for this challenge.  This bear is so cute and the fact that he can hold the different objects in the stamp set makes it even better.

I used Prisma Color Pencils to color in the bear and the gingerbread man.  The colors I used were Goldenrod (PC1034), Light Aqua (PC992), Chocolate (PC1082), Warm Gray (PC1050), Cool Gray (PC1059) and Crimson Red (PC924).

I used Gamsol to blend all of the colors out.

Then I used a PenBlade to trim one of the bears hands so that he could hold the gingerbread man.

I lifted the bear’s hand slightly and slide the gingerbread underneath it.  He stayed put.

Nice and easy!

Sooooo, what do you think? Please let me know below.

Prizes:

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 November is: The Artistic Stamper!
