It's a brand new year and the first challenge of 2013 at Top Tip Tuesday! We are excited to be back and Samantha has lined up some awesome new sponsors starting with our current sponsor, Zlatoena's Designs at Etsy. This adorable bunny was one of three images the design team was given to create with so be sure to hop on over ;) to the challenge blog to see what my teamies did with their images. Oh, and while you're there you might notice a few other changes that Samantha implemented and you will definitely want to note the new challenge rules as well.
One of my goals for the new year is to use the current paper supply that I have before buying any more. We'll see how long that lasts but I am going to try and stick with it lol. Today's card was made using MME Tickled Pink dp's and I stamped a simple sentiment from WMS at the bottom making it an all occasion card. After coloring this adorable image, Rabbit Traveler Bicycle, with Copic's I added a little shimmer with atyou Spica pens in yellow, pink and silver. You can't really see the effect in this photo and since Blogger is being such a pain at the moment with photo uploading I didn't include a close up but might add one later. A MS border punch added 'a little something' to the bottom of my image on this tri-fold card. The design was inspired by a Christmas card I received from my blog buddy, Margaret. :) I trimmed a 12x12 piece of white cs to 4.5 inches wide and placed it horizontally on my Scor Pal. I scored it at the 5" & 10" mark and used the bone folder to press my score lines. The image was attached to the 2" fold over flap and all of the edges were distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink by Ranger.
Fur or Feathers Challenge
Prize is 2 Digi images of winners choice.
A little bit about Zlatoena:
My mom and I used to make handmade cards and that`s how everything started. I'm last year graphic design student and I have always had to passion to draw and doodle and one day someone came with the idea for digi stamps and .. 3 years since then.. I am creating digital stamps and.. The Cats Pajamas Rubber stamps are producing my designs into real stamps.. and I am as happy as can be.
***One of the new changes this year is that the Top Tipper Prize is a one month stint as our guest designer.***
