Springtime Skiing


This Edwin skiing is one of my favorite images and so I had to pull him out one last time and put him to ink. I did decide to give him a little color though- instead of the typical winter scene and colors I went with greens. You know, if you are like me, you are drawn to the same colors all the time- whether it is paper or my copics so I picked some I had not used and then found some paper to match and this is what I came up with. I guess it was a challenge to myself! So- challenge yourself today- choose 2-3 colors that you have not used in say a month and give it a try. Come back and post your photo here!

This Magnolia stamp you can find over at Kelly's at KLStampinnScrappin, she has a nice variety of Magnolia's and she is always placing new orders as well. Stop on over!

Have an awesome Day!
Heidi

Little Edwin is adorable and love all that green! Come on Spring! Your card is a happy card for sure!

Thanks for the challenge, I'll be gone most of today and am sooooo far behind in challenges. I'll be back if I can meet your challenge, there are lots of colors I haven't used in a while.

I so agree that we need to challenge ourselves. You did a fatastic job using the colors. It can be so hard to "see" how the finished project will look when you are not used to the colors.

Sigh...my DH keeps talking to me while I am trying to type, LOL...

Great job on your card, Heidi! Love all the green and great job coloring Edwin!! I'm trying to use colors that I typically don't combine together. This week, I'm using green and yellow and blue and yellow!

It's great to challenge yourself. . .
