Hi there!!! This month is very special, as it’s a celebration at both the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group, and at the Ching-Chou Kuik blog 🙂 We are celebrating 4 years!!!  As with most celebrations, there are some goodies involved 🙂  The prizes this month in the challenges are as follows:

FOUR Random winners on the Blog
The usual Artist Choice Award winner on the Blog
FOUR Random winners on the Facebook Group
The usual Artist Choice Award winner on the Facebook Group
The usual two Top 2 winners on the Facebook Group
AND…..there is a gorgeous FREE image for everyone that enters the Blog Challenge or the Facebook Challenge. Ching-Chou has created Fresh Blue, a stunning greyscale image for this celebration.
The DT members were given the opportunity to make a project with this gorgeous image as inspiration….and encouragement 😉  I was thrilled to do so!!!
I decided to go with a monochrome sepia look for her when I colored her up with my Copics.
Since the color scheme was quite limited, I used more embellishments than I may normally use.  I started with a background paper with a burlap print, and paired it with some tan and some dark brown papers.  I distressed the edges of the darker paper before assembling.  I layered a piece of lace on the cross piece and then added a torn die cut lacy part to peek out from behind the image.  Some pearl swirls balanced out the rest of the corners.  I die cut the sentiment multiple times to add some depth, then plunked a few pearls on the underlying die cut pieces.  I hope this inspires you to join in our challenge this month….both the Facebook and Blog’s themes are Halloween, so it’s very seasonal 🙂  Bonus is, you get a free image at the end, and great chances at prizes!!! Come help us celebrate 🙂
