Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #18 – Office Supplies or Job Related (Labor Day)

Hello Open-Minded Crafting Challenge friends.  It’s time for a new challenge to celebrate Labor Day using Office Supplies or Job Related images.  As a creative person, I chose my design team inspiration from Scrappers Delight, “Crafty’s Honey Painter”.  Being a painter full-time would sure be a cool vocation, but alas, I will have to continue creating on the weekends and evenings!

This challenge runs through September 12, 2014, and as usual, some fantastically generous sponsors who provide great prizes for our randomly chosen winners.  The Design Team also chooses their favorite entries and those cards are highlighted in acknowledgement.  Let’s see some of those great sponsors and prizes:


Aurora Wings

Winning Prize:  $20.00 Gift Certificate


Digital Delights

Winning Prize: $5.00 Gift Certificate

Faery Ink

Winning Prize: 5 Images


Scrappers Delight

Winning Prize:  3 Images

Sentimental Susan

Winning Prize:  5 Images

Here is my inspiration for you using the Scrappers Delight, “Crafty Honeys Painter”.  Bright, huh?  I took a little liberty with some of my neon inks from Hero Arts for this card, that includes coloring her hair green and orange, but I think it works, what do you think? The dies are Sizzix and the paper is Amy Tangerine “sketchbook”.  I used Ranger Dimensional Liquid Pearls to make the colors on the paint pallet and stamped the sentiment, paint brush and pallet using Paper Smooches “i Heart art”.  I’d love it if you came by and entered a card for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
