Happy New Year!!!
It's time for a new challenge at Curtain Call and we have this fun inspiration graphic that we have called "Smitten".
There's so much inspiration in this one - mittens, wonderful colors, the title of "Smitten" - it's going to be fun.
The sponsor for this challenge is Linnie Blooms and the LEAD (or winner) of this challenge will receive a gift certificate.
Linnie Blooms graciously provided the design team with Faber-Castell Gelatos. I chose the Tropical set - others got the 50's Diner. I had never worked with Gelatos and I am generally not a technique person. However, I have to admit that Gelatos were easier to use than I expected and they gave really fun results. I did a card with a simple color-wash that is ultra easy - but I am saving this card for the Curtain Call reminder post on January 7th.
I did something slightly different for today because I really wanted to focus on the mittens and love theme. I never put away my winter stamps after Christmas. In Colorado, Valentine's Day is typically much colder and much snowier than is Christmas. (In fact, March is Colorado's snowiest month!) So it makes total sense to me to include mittens on my Valentine's cards!
