StampTV color challenge

Cindy over at StampTV has a color challenge this week using the SU! (or close to it) colors of: Always Artichoke, Apricot Appeal, and Pumpkin Pie. I used the "close to" option when coloring my owl from Hero Arts. I used colored pencils (various brands) and baby oil. I had planned on trying the "kissing technique" but discovered I don't have any solid stamps to try that with! I also thought I was going to do the sketch challenge over there, and that wasn't clicking , either!! And it's such an easy sketch! Maybe it'll work for me tomorrow! I hadn't planned on trying the color challenge, and that ended up being the one that worked! My ribbon color actually coordinates better IRL! It's from Target $1 Spot, and has little circles, just the DP. Both of the DP's are digi downloads from Gina K.

Wow!! It's been three months since I started my blog, and people other than my Mom read it!!! DH was pretty amazed when I told him tonight that there are people subscribed through Google Reader and who show up as a "Follower"!!! Thanks to all of you...! If you had told me at this time last year that I would be making cards, writing a blog, entering challenges, having fun in the stamp community...I would have laughed at you! I thought blogs were a nutty idea ;-) Didn't know about crafting blogs!! Not so nutty anymore. Anyway, thanks to everyone who follows along and checks up on things!!

Happy crafting!
