September Technique Challenge

Hi Everyone!  It's EK here to host the last challenge in September!  

If you ever seen my projects, you would have noticed that most of them are all about the colouring, so I thought I would take the time to focus on my favorite technique.



This week we are all about the Colouring, so pick your favourite colouring medium and really highlight your skills!



Here is some inspiration from the Design Team:

September Theme Challenge

Hi Everyone!  It's EK back to introduce this month's Theme Challenge!  

There is nothing I love more than receiving a really cleaver and funny Christmas Card in the mail, so I thought we should make this month's theme all about the Puns.




So pull out your whimsical and funny stamps and dies and fell free to get Punny!

September Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone!  It's EK here to host our September Challenges!  

As always we kick off the first challenge of the month with a Sketch challenge.  

I picked a sketch that was meant to be it's own framed work.  I can not wait to see how you interpret this sketch!



Those of you paying close attention will notice that the challenge numbers smaller than they were last month.  There's a good reason for this. Originally I was supposed to be hosting the challenge in August, but since Lucinda is expecting a new bundle of joy, we flopped months!  The whole Design Team waits with baited breath as we get to welcome a new baby to the team.
