WinterHaven at StampHaven

I know I haven't blogged for quite a while. I decided to jump back in and mention the stamping fun at WinterHaven. It is hosted at StampHaven, and has lots of fun stamping challenges ranging from techniques to limited supplies to themes. Here is a link to the main thread:

I've been participating in the challenges and having a blast. I am hosting the "ugly paper" challenge. I mailed out packets of u-g-l-y paper and pink and green neon vellum to haveners, and they have been creating works of art. Here are my samples:

Isn't he cute? Stamp is from Prima, and I colored him with Copic markers. I'm still getting the hang of them, but they are great to use. Sentiment stamp is from Prickley Pear, flowers are from Bazzill and Prima.

Sorry the picture came out so dark on this one. I just had to create another since I am lovin' this little owl! The "ugly" patterned papers are from a DCWV Retro Paper Stack I bought a long time ago.

Lastly, I used the pink neon vellum to make a teen card for Cards for Heroes. I used black Staz-On ink since vellum is a non-porous surface. Stamps are from Inkadinkado. It's hard to tell in this picture but I distressed the edges of the black cardstock with sandpaper to reveal it's pink core. I love Co'redinations black cardstock with the colored cores! I also smudged some black Staz-On around the edges of the vellum to distress it up a bit.

That's all for now, I'll upload more projects later.
