It's Challenge Time with Blog Candy :)

Our very first challenge...the beginning of what we hope will become a favorite of yours from 2RedBananas!!!

This challenge is an easy one, it is to use your favorite stamp on a new project!

Yep, that's it. Easy, unless you're like me and then choosing your favorite stamp is the difficult part. I chose this stamp because it's my "Right now favorite". I love how warm and cozy they all are.

This one uses House Mouse 'Cozy Roost' and the sentiment is 'A Difference'.

I used Blingz for the sky and I wanted you to see how cool it is. I mixed Wintergreen and December Sky because I didn't want true blue or green, but something in between. It was so easy to do. I just dipped my brush (the same one) into each color separately and mixed them as I was coloring the background. It's so easy to get into smaller spots, like between the birds legs with Blingz and Shimmerz. I did small sections at a time so it wouldn't dry before I was ready. I also used Angels Wings shimmerz on the birds bellies, but you can't see that as well because of my lack of photography skills. I used glitter for the snow on the limbs.

I also used aqua mesh ribbon by May Arts.

To participate in our challenge, just make a project using your favorite stamp or your "right now favorite" stamp. Leave a comment on this post with a link to your creation. You have until Friday, January 2, 2009 at midnight CST to comment. The winner will be drawn randomly on Saturday, January 3rd.

The blog candy will be the winner's choice of any 2 Shimmerz or Blingz paints that 2RedBananas carries.

I also wanted to share the sketch site I used for this card: - I used sketch #30. Great place to find fun sketches :)
