A new month means a new Guest DT and we are excited to welcome Debbie Carriere! We will learn more about Debbie later this week but I wanted to shout out a big congratulations to her today!
We are also excited to announce a new prize opportunity. This will not be an option every week but on some weeks we will be offering a 4 for 40 prize. Here's how it works:
On a 4 for 40 week, one member of the Design Team will be presenting a tip, idea, technique or other great info that they want to share with you. They will also be providing a fabulous prize - 4 custom created cards for one lucky participant! However, this will only be available if we have 40 people play along with that week's challenge. So start spreading the word and get your friends, family, customers, upline, downline, neighbors and more to play along!
Our first Design Team member is the talented Deneen and here's some great information that she is sharing with us this week:
"I've recently discovered an awesome tool that doesn't get much attention...the Blending Pen!! I have the Waterbrush and thought the Blending Pen was the same thing, just disposable. Boy, was I wrong. It's much dryer, and easier to colour with than the Waterbrush. I coloured the peacock in my Fancy Fold card with it,(see last week's sample) and highlighted the flowers in my 4 for 40 card. (You Are Beautiful is retiring :( it's one of my favourites!!) I love my Copics, but the Blending Pen is great when you want to match your stamped image with your ink. For instance, when you stamp a flower using Sky ink, you can add dimension by highlighting aspects of it with your Blending Pen and Sky ink (for subtle differences), or say Indian Corn Blue (for a more distinct difference). So, dust off your Blending Pen and try it again, you'll fall in love all over :)"
And here is one of the cards Deneen will be sending one player that was created using her blending pen technique:
Stunning! And this is just one of the fabulous cards Deneen will be sending so you want to be sure to play along this week!
And just what is the challenge you ask? It's a favorite - a color challenge!
Ok you have to be inspired to get creating now, right? And with a new prize opportunity, you know you have to play along! So get your creation made and posted to Mister Linky below before Sunday night at 10 pm EST. We can't wait to see what you create with our color choices this week!
