Kim & Tara Challenge #4....Friend, Let's go on a Picnic!!!


Well, it's time for another challenge with my blogging buddy, Kim, from Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner!!! Kim had a brilliant idea to kick, our little monthly challenge, up a notch!!! I'm so glad she suggested it cuz it was so much FUN!!!


She suggested that one of us pick the image, stamp it, and mail it to the other one and then the other person pick the patterned paper and pop it in the mail!!! Neither of us would know what the other one is sending. Then we'd both make a card with the same image and paper and see what we come up with!!!
So, for this K&T challenge, I stamped this sweet Sarah Kay image with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Georgia Pacific paper, so, Kim and I could colour it, with our beloved Copic markers.
Kim picked 3 gorgeous papers by 3 Bugs in a Rug and sent them to me. She had no idea what image I was sending her, so, she had no way of knowing if the pp and image would work well together....just a wee bit risky,eh!? I had this fear that she would send me pp with snowflakes on it. That would be one chilly bike ride, he he he!!!
Well, no worries, the image and paper went together beautifully! I had a great time making this card! I really enjoyed the vibrant colours in this beautiful paper that Kim picked out!
So, now head on over to Kim's blog and see what she created with this same image and patterned paper! I have already had a wee sneak peek...it is absolutely gorgeous!!!
Thanks for dropping by and having a wee look-see!!!
Hugs,
