Our Very First Wink Wink Ink Challenge!

Today I have some great news to share: Wink Wink Ink is having a monthly challenge where you will have the chance to win some fabulous Wink Wink Ink Digital Images! The challenges will be posted on the first Monday of every month. To play along, all you have to do is use Wink Wink Images and follow the instructions for that month's challenge. If you don't have any Wink Wink Images to start with, you can use this cute 'freebie' pictured on my card below. Its available HERE.

The challenge this month is to make a card or project using border punches. To make my card, I used the 'Free Stamp' available at the Wink Wink Store. This stamp comes pre-colored or in black and white. Because I love to color, I chose the black and white version, and colored it with Copic Markers. The paper is by Cosmo Cricket, and I mounted the main image panel up on dimensionals. I used the Stampin Up! Scalloped Border Punch on the side of the main image. The sketch is from Paper Craft Planet and the sentiment is computer generated. I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Blossom' Die for the sentiment because I thought it mimicked the clouds in the designer paper very well.
Here is a close up of the main image so you can see the coloring. Doesn't this bear look so sad? He looks like he could really use some sunshine.

I hope you all can find the time to play along with us this month. You can find further instructions about the challenge HERE.
Have a great day! Amy

    I hear you about the lack of time. I'm working for the Census for the next month or so in addition to my regular job and doing tax returns at night. But sometimes you have to make yourself take a break.
