Guest Designer For OOZAK

( ** Please scroll down for The Greeting Farm Blog Hop ** )

Hello again sweet friends.  Today I have the privilege of being a Guest Designer on the OOZAK Challenge Blog.  Their current challenge is "Anything Goes" using your favorite color combo!  Well, you can't get any easier than that, right?



I decided to use two things that I haven't used in forever ... a Tilda stamp and my distress inks.  This sweet little Tilda is called Tilda With Big Ice Cream from Magnolia's "With Love" Collection.  You can find this collection in the OOZAK shop.  So as I mentioned, I colored her with distress inks.  I love the very soft, pale colors that most people achieve with their inks but as you can see, I haven't mastered that technique yet lol!  I always plan to color in pale hues but my colors always end up much brighter than I planned.  But that's OK, I still love using my DIs :)  I guess you can tell that my favorite color combo is shades of pinks & blues?  I followed the current sketch over at Crafting Life's Pieces.  I embellished my card with a doily, lace, seam binding, cupcake button, punched flowers, diecut butterfly, and pearls.  There's still plenty of time to enter the OOZAK challenge so head over to their blog to find all the details.  Thank you,  Melanie and OOZAK, for letting me play along with you this month!

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Be sure to scroll down if you want to play along in The Greeting Farm's Blog Hop.

Hugs, Anita

Ooooooo so very pretty!! I love how you used your DI's and I think it's just so pretty with the colors so vibrant like that. I have all the DI's but I'm still trying to figure out how to use them. It's not working so well. LOL! Love how you colored hat ice cream and great layout. Thank you so much for joining us at Magnolia-licious and Wee Stamps challenge and hope to see you back!

Very sweet Anita and I haven't even tried coloring with DI's, don't need something else to fiddle with! I prefer the bright colors myself unless it is Elaine's stuff, her soft colors always amaze me.
