Have A Beautiful Day


Happy Thursday! Today I'm super excited to be the Guest Designer for Time Out's newest challenge: "we challenge you to be different."

This prompt was exactly the push I needed to finally try out a different (and new-to-me) coloring technique that I've seen Yana Smakula and Therese Calvird demonstrate on their YouTube channels. (You can check out two of their posts/videos HERE and HERE.) you have first attempt at blending-free coloring:

Now...I'm definitely no Yana or Therese, but I sure did have lots of fun creating this!!! I'm looking forward to practicing this technique some more and trying it out with different images and color combos too :)

A big THANK YOU to Time Out Challenges for having me as their Guest Designer!!! And loads of thanks to Yana and Therese for the creative inspiration :)

I hope you'll have a chance to play along with this challenge! Interested to see how you interpret the prompt and can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations!

  3. You are a wonderful Guest, and have brought them the most wonderful, beautifully 'different' card, Lisa! This was such a great floral set to use that technique - psst i've tried it too - more soon!
    On an even brighter note: I signed up AGAIN but this time on your new blog - BINGO!! There you are in my inbox at last!!

  6. What a pretty card! I have seen this beautiful technique and you did it so beautifully in those soft colors. So glad to have you as a guest at Time out. Hugs ~ Ishani.

  7. You did a great job with that technique. I need to try seems like it would be easier than blending the colors, but I'm guessing it's not! Beautiful card! Thanks for guesting with us for this Time Out challenge!
