Welcome to the New Year!

The new year of challenges, that is! This year we're doing things a little differently at Totally Papercrafts. We've split up the design team into two teams (Teams A and B - how clever of us!) to give our members a little more time between challenges. And we've sponsored two sponsors for almost every challenge this year. Yay! That means two chances every week for participants to win a cool prize from one of our wonderful sponsors! :)

It's my turn to host this week. I chose a ribbon theme in honor of our sponsor, Ribbon Carousel. Just use ribbon somewhere on your project to play along with our challenge! (Do you like my ribbon? It's actually vintage seam binding that I bought from The Ribbon Carousel.) Our other sponsor this week is the fab DigiStamp Boutique and I chose one of DSB's adorable teddies from the Louie Love Set.

Supplies: Louie Love Set (DSB), ivory vintage seam binding (Ribbon Carousel), red swirl dp (K&Co), pink heart dp (Bo Bunny), pewter heart brads (Oriental Trading), Copics, kraft cs, charcoal pencil and blender.

I experimented with a new shading technique that I saw on the There She Goes blog: Shading with Pastel Chalk Pencils. I definitely need to practice it some more, but I like how much depth it added to my image.
