Open-Minded Crafting Fun Challenge #18 Midway and Winners.

Good morning everyone! It's the weekend and for some reason I am just exhausted this weekend. Been working on some coloring and I need to work on some cards tomorrow. A few more cards to finish to have September DT stuff done. That is my goal! If I get those done I will feel good and can start working on October again. It feels good to be ahead. I don't want to lose that LOL!!  So, I have to get busy! I hope you all have a FANTASTIC weekend!

This morning you will find the winners posted on the Open-Minded Crafting Fun website for Challenge #17. This afternoon you will find the midway post with additional inspiration from the team. Our sponsors for this challenge are:




Here is what I have come up with for our Office Supplies or Job Related Labor Day Celebration:








This is Little Shepherd from Aurora Wings. I just love him! I think he is adorable! I only did a small bit of decoupage. I decoupaged his hand and the lamb. The die cut around the image is My Favorite Things. I distressed the edges of some of the papers. The card itself was cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I loved this easel card because of the little tabs that it cuts to help hold it up. I added some green gems to each tab. I also added the two bells which are tied to the twine, which is wrapped around the holly paper. For my office supplies I added the two staples on the right upper corner of the image and the two paper clips. I added a little bit of lace to the side and a metal cross on the sentiment on the bottom. I believe that it is! Oh.. I colored this image with my Copic Markers.

Copic Markers:
  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
  • Shepherd Clothing: E40, E41, E42, 0
  • Cane: E31, E33, E35
  • Headband: R14, R46
  • Sheep: N1, N3, N5, 0
  • Grass: G20, G21, G24
