TCP Tuesday 116

It's Tuesday, so it must be TCP Tuesday.

This week I'm the Hostess with the Mostess and I'm doing a technique challenge. I'm an old gal, so I like the old techniques. And you know what they say? Every thing old is new again.

So I'm challenging you to use Colored Pencils with Mineral Spirits. Yup. What? Colored Pencils and what? Odorless mineral spirits, or Gamsol. This is how we used to color our stuff before Copics came around. Want to know how to do it? Anna Wight, artist and chicken raiser extraordinaire has a little tutorial.

Here's my take on the technique and I used the sketch from Jen's SFYTT.
I just love the Garden Variety Paper Pack from Cosmo Cricket and I thought it would be perfect here. I was too lazy to open the sewing machine so I doodled the "sewing" around the edge with my Inkssentials white pen.

Want to play? You could win $25 in Cat's Cash!

Play along with us and add your own design to your Splitcoast Gallery using keywords TCPTues116 or to your blog and then use the Inlinkz button at the bottom of the post to add your design to this page. You could be eligible to be the next Swanky Stamper of the Month and win 25 smackeroos, that's $25 in Cat's Cash.

Here are the Deets

1. Each a week one of The Cat Pack will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, technique, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
4. Post your design using the Inlink Button at the bottom of this post. Your design must be linked and visible to this blog post to be considered.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.
7. Only designs posted to this blog post will be considered for the Swanky Stamper.
8. The newly crowned Swanky Stamper will be announced on the First of the Month and have his/her winning entry posted on The Cat’s Pajamas website where he/she will reign for the entire month.
