Something New

cic461The first challenge of the new year is up over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  Since it is a new year, or first theme challenge is exactly that…something new.  What does that mean?  Well simply, make a project with something new.  A new crafting supply, a new technique, a new goal for the new year.

This challenge is sponsored by Sparkle N’ Sprinkle who is offering a generous $15 gift card to one random participant, so break out your new and get playing.

ek gorman, cic461 aFor my project this week, I pulled out my brand new polychromos colored pencils and the Ballet Shoes Digital Stamp from Sparkle N’ Sprinkle and colored them up.  My husband joked that I was using this image because my new plan for this year was to conquer the world….I don’t think he is funny.

ek gorman, cic461 bI decided to keep the rest of the card simple and let my new coloring tools and the digital stamp be the star of the show.

ek gorman, cic461 cI can’t wait to see what you come up with using this fun new years theme.  Until then, happy crafting.

In addition to our challenge, I am going to enter this card into our sponsor, Sparkle N’ Sprinkle’s monthly challenge.
