TSG89 - Let's Experiment

It's time for another There She Goes challenge and this week it's a colour challenge. The colours are brought to us by fellow Trendsetter Julie and are Black, Red, Pink and Grey (TSG89). I must admit that I did have some problems coming up with some papers that would work for this but I did it and it's all about experimenting ;)

I combined my TSG colour challenge with a sketch that I found over at the Get Sketchy blog for the GS69 challenge. I used my TSG Chemistry set to make this unusual and fun Valentine's card. The beakers were water coloured with my tombow markers and at water brush and then coated with both clear embossing powder to set the inks and then crystal effects for extra shine.

Do you want to participate too and try to win a gift certificate to There She Goes? Here are the details to get you started: 

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes the colors provided, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Jan 17th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG89 so we can check out your beautiful work!

That's it for now so have fun!
