I decided to try joining a challenge! First time for me. This one is sponsored by Twin Touch Markers, and cosponsored by The Stamps of Life. Check out the designers' submissions, using the above link, and join in yourself!

The Twin Touch Colour Challenge: TTC08  was to use these four colours:   I first stamped the image using Staz-on ink in Black.  Because I don't own any Twin Touch Markers (yet! fingers crossed that I win some in this challenge) I used a water pen and my Close-to-My-Heart ink-pads--corresponding colours were Barn Red, Olive Green, Old England Ivy, and Sunflower. I also used a little bit of Crystal Blue for the windows and sky.  The stamp set is "Houses4us" from the Stamps of Life; the small sentiment was an extra in December's set-of-the-month, "Candy2share." The card stock (in Barn Red) and patterned paper are also by Close-to-My Heart. I must say, having looked at the designers' entries, I am curious to try some TT markers. I'd love a lesson on how to get the shading effects. I'll have to re-visit the website myself and look for a local vendor and/or tutorial. Happy colouring!
