Out with the old and in with the new...

Happy New Year Crafty Peeps!

As we ring in 2013, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best year that you've ever had, and that each New Year will be better than the last.

May you realize your fondest dreams and take time to recognize and enjoy each and every blessing that comes your way.

Plus make sure you get a lot of therapeutic crafty time in!

Albeit, I am one day late with this particular post, but with it brings to you a new challenge from Through the Craftroom Door Magazine. 

This week’s challenge is sponsored by the magazine as well, and as usual it's “Anything Goes”. 

Just in case you are new to my blog and aren't familiar with TTCRD, it is an online magazine with lots of fun projects, various articles on products and featured guests, but most of all it has inspiration galore!

My Image is by Crafter’s Companion and affectionately known as Popcorn the Bear.

If you already have a subscription to the magazine then this little fella and his sidekick SoufflĂ© may look familiar to you.

I made a Copic colouring “adding texture” tutorial for the November/December addition.  I decided to use the image to make a card for this pink overload wouldn't you say?

The DP’s are from SU and then I used some basic card stock from my stash for the matte and squares. I didn't use any sketch in particular.

 I punched out a couple of hearts, added glossy accents to them for dimension. A little bling here and there and finished off with some glossy accents on SoufflĂ©’s beak and feet as well as Popcorn's nose and eyes. 
Oh there is some layering going on as well.
I don’t know where my mind was, but I just noticed that I didn't ground the image as I usually do, so let’s just pretend that I did :D 

I sure hope you will stop over and check out the challenge. My fellow DT members have come up with some awesome inspiration for you.

I am entering this into the following challenges.

Get those crafty mojo's in gear!

Thanks for stopping by  :) S
