Paper Craft Planet - MyGrafico-Sponsored Challenge



We have a really fun challenge for you today -- it's a product challenge, sponsored by MyGrafico. To play along, create ANYTHING using one of the MyGrafico images -- they have a ton to choose from, but if you're trying to cut costs, here's a link to some free images.
Post your project in the Paper Craft Planet photo gallery, and use the tag "PCPgrafico". (Here is a tutorial on adding pictures to the gallery, if you need it.) MyGrafico has generously offered a $10 gift certificate to the store to one of our lucky challenge players.
Just a note about working with digital stamps:
  • You do NOT have to have a photo editing software. You can just open and print these jpg images.

  • If you have a photo editing program, the images come in both jpg and png files. You can resize the images and combine them into scenes with just a click of the mouse.

  • Digital images last forever and require very little storage space!

  • There are several great tutorial videos over on Paper Craft Planet that will show you how to use digital images, if you have any questions.
Here is what the rest of the Super Novas came up with:

Now, it's your turn! Take the challenge and let's see what you make!



For my card, I chose to use this cute owl sitting on a branch and colored him with my Copic markers. The eyes and beak were colored and cut out from an extra image, then added to the main image with some foam tape. I used some designer paper from October Afternoon, a sentiment from Kim Hughes' URA Hoot stamp set, and the Sketch for You to Try from Jen del Muro.
Thanks for stopping by so many times today! I appreciate your patience with all the posts I have up today!

Stamps: owl from Forest Friends (MyGrafico)Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Bahama Blue (Stampin' Up!), Reed (Bazzill), white (Neenah), designer paper (October Afternoon)Inks: Versamagic Ocean Depth (Tsukineko), markers (Copic)Accessories: concave corner punch (EK Success), scalloped circle, circles (Stampin' Up!), clear embossing powder (Ranger).
