It is time for the first challenge of the New Year at Your Next Stamp!! Your Next Stamp Starlet Maylee has chosen the theme for challenge 7, she would love to see "embossing" on your cards.
Of course we would love to see you create a card using a Your Next Stamp image, but we also welcome projects made with other stamps. But if you do use a Your Next Stamp stamp or stamps, you will be given 2 entries into the challenge prize draw. The challenge runs for two weeks, so there is plenty of time for you to join us.
As always, we have 2 fabulous prizes for you to win:
Winner – one lucky winner, chosen by random.org, will win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Winner Blinkie to proudly display on their blog.
Top Pick – one lucky entry, chosen by Maylee, will win $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks (to spend on YNS stamps) and the Top Pick Blinkie to proudly display on their blog! [ You must use a YNS stamp on your creation to be eligible to win the Top Pick prize].
I have used the Happy Days Mermaid set from Your Next Stamp for my card, I just love this image, she is so perfect to colour using promarkers. I didn't manage to capture all of the sparkle in this photo but I used shimmer paints on her fish tail, the cute crab is covered with glossy accents to give his shell a wet look, and I have put stickles sequin around the star fish. I have used a quickutz bubbles embossing folder for the background which I have lightly sanded to give a little more depth, the papers are an old BG set called Pheobe. I decided not to add a greeting for this card as I thought it was a fun card that could be used for more than one occassion so I will until I deciede who to send it to.
Dont forget to check out the Your Next Stamp challenge blog as the Your Next Stamp Starlets have made some beautiful cards to share with you for inspiration.
