DoubleClick Skittles Challenge Week #2 | Something New

Hi everyone!
2016 is almost here! Happy New Year!
So, do you make resolutions or not for the New Year?
I try to, but it doesn't seem to stick. So this year I will set small reasonable goals that are more attainable for me. I want to be better at what I love to do, and that is art, creativity, designing, and blogging. So those seem attainable for 2016, and I won't know until I begin with more practicing!

So enough about that!
Today the theme at the DoubleClick Skittle Challenge is Something New.  We are in week two, and it's a fun theme. Last week I was waiting on new stamps to arrive and they finally did!

One of my new stamp sets came from Gerda Steiner Designs, and this is the Hello Spring set. I had so much fun putting this card together!

I used pigment inks for blending, the grass, sky, and the sun. I colored the hen with copics, and the rest with Tombow markers. A little masking involved, but I love it!

To accent this card I used the banana skittles from DoubleClick Connections, and a couple of matching sequins. I used Neenah solar white cardstock for the panel. The card base is actually from Paper Studios I found at Hobby Lobby. I thought I was buying 100 envelopes for $9.99, turns out it was 50 card bases and 50 white envelopes. Ok, I never used pre-cut cards before, so that was easy!

I know it's early for Spring cards, but it was fun. I hope you like it.
Come join the challenge this week, link up your project with your Skittles for a chance to win a prize! If you do not have any Skittles you can still play along. The Skittle dew drops are such a fun and beautiful embellishment that you can use alone or with other embellishments. And Carrie has a variety of colors, and free shipping in the United States!
