Winner of April Challenge!
I am starting to get involved with monthly art challenges for fun. They increase web traffic but most of all it stretches the mind and the artistic talents to try and develop items around these challenges. This particular challenge was to use a special blank template that has 8 squares and a circle center for the image as you see above. The idea is to use a digi stamp from DigiStamps4Joy which in this case is the cute image of the park bench in the center and using the template build something around it.
Now my idea was to create a card front that you can print out and color however you like to give to whomever or you let the person you give the card to color it themselves if they are an artist. Adult coloring pages are the rage now and I thought it would be fun to create a card around this craze. The cover prints out onto half of 8X10" paper so that you can fold it in half to make a card like you see above.
The other thing of important note is that the image I used from DigiStamps4Joy has specifications on how you can use the image. It states you cannot show the image without it being colored in. This of course is to keep people who didn't buy the rights to it from getting the image. However it presented a problem for me based on how I wanted to create my card as I wanted it to be a coloring image. So I decided wouldn't it be fun to colorize the bench put it center and then let you color the rest of the image. That way we appease our wonderful hosts that their image is safe and we accomplish the look we want as well. Plus it hopefully gives you inspiration on coloring the rest of the card which contains all hand drawn elements.
I hope you like it as it was a super fun challenge. I will have the card for sale in the store soon so that you can download it. It will have a white background so the images can't be extracted again for protection of our guest image in the center "the park bench"created by Margy. Note just the bench was created by Margy and all imagery around the bench was hand drawn by me. By the By this card also matches our wonderful Garden Series of Adult coloring pages on purpose!
