Hello and welcome back to The Ink Trap! I have been neglecting my blog for the past few days, but not to worry. I'm back and I have lots to share :D First and foremost, I'd like to extend a huge heartfelt "thank you" to the fabulous ladies who attended the collabortative class taught by Anne Engelhardt and yours truly, yesterday. I am having such a great time teaching with Anne, I feel like it ought to be illegal to have this much fun! I'm sure in some countries it is! More collaborative projects are coming up on the calendar for the next quarter, be sure and check the CP2 blog for updates. I can't wait!
Also, I want to thank my sweetheart hubby for providing lunch for the gang. He smoked a pork butt and we enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches with his newly bottled barbecue sauce. Let's just say, lunch was a huge hit and his pork butt was met with rave reviews. I made a little chocolate/peanut buttery something to balance the zestiness of his sauce and the rich smoky flavor of the pork. Pretty tasty ;D
Today, I'm bringing you the latest challenge from Kenny K's Krafty Girlz. Team A is up this week and we are challenging you to use a sketch for your card layout. These challenges are by far my favorite, because sometimes, the card layout is the most difficult part of the process.
Also, Kenny K is introducing 4 new images in the shop and they are all wedding themed. I chose to use Wedding Dance for my card. I left my wedding couple in lots of white and just added a bit of C1, C2, and B000 to their outfits to create the illusion of white. Leaving the white areas without color makes them appear unfinished and flat. Adding just a touch of light shading where shadows might appear or highlights were light might reflect, makes the images pop and come to life a bit more.
Prizes this week are more than plentiful. Kenny K is offering the random winner their choice of 5 digital images and Bearly Mine Designs is offering the winner their choice of 2 digital paper packs. SWEET! But, remember, you must use a Kenny K image on your creation in order to be eligible to win.
I'll be back soon with more cards and a special announcement, so do come back ;D Until then, stay crafty!
