Cray Cray

Umm, can we say obsessed? I am loving these Hipsters! I based my design, believe it or not, on the latest The Heart Desires Challenge--the chicken, the splashes of color, the random mix of patterns and textures. Who knew, right?!

Now take a look at my previous Hipster card. That one is much more muted and masculine. My chicken is opposite land and way cray cray!! LOL. This time I mixed Recollections shimmer crayons (I had those for so long that I had thrown them in the summer yard sale pile!) with the Distress ones. The Recollections spread very smoothly but had less vivid color. I also learned that I prefer to dampen my finger a bit and pick up color from the crayon then spread it on the paper. Just a different effect.

Thanks again to Doodlebugs for the demo on this set! I have a friend who will be in the area weekend after next with her mom and she's added the shop to their itinerary--have fun, Katie--I'm so jelly! And thanks as well, Katie, for the stencil. It took me months to use it but I finally did!
