Crossword Scrapblock Peek and Numbers Challenge

 
I guess I must be wishing for spring - I've gone all cute and colorful lately!!  This card uses a brand new Scrapblock coming tomorrow (February 19th) from Cornish Heritage Farms, appropriately called "Crossword."  This is a fun 6x6 size that can be used to make your own patterned scrapbook paper, or it can be cut down to make any sized card you like.  I embossed the image in black, to help keep my coloring in the lines.  Then I just got out my Copics and played around with color categories.  It was actually a nice little lesson in how well different colors blend, since I overlapped the coloring wherever the "words" would intersect.  Just added some Prima flowers, a button, and a Dymo sentiment and was done.

And looking at all those clue numbers.... I'm using this as my sample for the "Numbers" challenge, the current "Random Redhead" challenge over at Gingersnap Creations.  The numbers challenge runs through February 21, and there is some yummy blog candy from Serendipity Stamps for one lucky participant.  You can see all of the current challenges along the left-hand side of the blog.  Hope you can find time to play!

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)
