Outlawz Progressive Challenge

Happy New Year to all my dear blog friends and those that are just  stopping by for the first time. May 2020 be a good year of creativity and inspiration!

I am starting out this year with a project for the Outlawz Progressive Challenge and this month our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the image is Chibi Flowerpot Peeker. Isn't she too cute?

I created my one layer card in Silhouette Studio and printed it out onto Canson C' a Grain Drawing paper. I filled the 4x5.25 inch rectangle with a digital paper from the Flower Power Pack by Gecko Galz, added the .png digi to the cardfront and then added an oval just behind the digi with a low opacity so that it would help the digi stand out against the flowery background.

I colored the image with my Prismacolor colored pencils. Once she was done, I returned the page to the Silhouette to cut it out. I adhered the panel to a colored cardbase.

I completed my card with a sentiment die cut out of black cardstock. I cut two of them out and stuck them together for a little bit of dimension. Once the sentiment was on my card, I added some Wink of Stella to add a little bit of sparkle to it.

Please head over to the Outlawz Progressive Challenge to learn how you can jump in and join the fun.
