I hope your Saturday is off to a great start!
Today marks the start of a new challenge over at
The theme for the January challenge is.....
(Think glitter, sequins, foil, anything that sparkles and shines)
You just need to simply create a new project, post it to your blog and enter by adding it to the inlinkz at the Pink & Main Challenge Blog.
Here is the card that I created for the challenge:
For my card, I decided to do a little watercoloring. I used some distress inks and blended them together onto some watercolor cardstock. I then got a wet brush and blended them even more, as well as creating the watercolor effect. I set that layer aside and let it dry. I then took a piece of white cardstock and ran some versamark ink all the way around the edges. I sprinkled on some gold embossing powder and then used my heat gun to melt the powder. I used some foam tape to attach it to my card base. Once my watercolor piece was dry, I took some gold shimmer mist and sprinkled some onto my watercolor piece. I heat embossed that cute little greeting with more gold embossing powder onto a piece of vellum and then attached it by wrapping it and securing it to the back of the watercolor and then layered that onto my card with more foam tape. I finished off my card with some shiny gold sequins.
P.S. Isn't that greeting so sweet?? It's a little sneak peek from one of the new sets that will be releasing on January 10th titled, "Hello Sweet" from Pink & Main. I love the font and that big "Sweet"!
I hope you will create a project and join us for the
January Pink & Main Challenge!!

You can find all of the rules there (there aren't many) and don't forget that you do not have to use Pink & Main products on your project.
