You Ought to Be in Pictures

This week it is hip to be square at Meljen's Designs!  The challenge...use square elements on your card.

I used Windswept Diva from the recent release and colored her with Copics.  She was inspired by the iconic Marilyn Monroe pose.  I wanted the card to look like a film cel so I used some mosaic squares I found on clearance.  It took some doing getting them on, but in the end it was worth it!  I added some Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon and created the sentiment on the computer so it would have the right spacing.

Don't forget about the sale going on in the shop!  Everything is 20% off and there is no code required! Every order of $10 or more will be entered into a drawing for a $50 certificate!  Multiple orders get multiple entries.  What are you waiting for?! Go get shopping!

Frosted Flora Color Challenge

We are mixing it up this week at Meljen's Designs.  Our challenge is to create a project using the colors from the inspiration photo Frosted Flora.

Such lovely colors!  I admit, I had to work to get them to come together the way I wanted though!

I used the image Snowy Moose from the recent release.  I colored him using my Copics.  This image was a little harder to get the shading worked out, but I am happy with it overall.  I kept it simple as I thought the moose made a good masculine image.  Keeping that in mind, I used the green as the main color and added bits of the other colors.

Come play in the color challenge!  I would love to see how you use the colors together.
