VC ROCKS - Blog Hop #1 - Color my World

Home link for blog hop: www.vcrocks.blogspot.com

In case you don't know what VC is.... it stands for Virtual Convention and was established for those who were unable to attend Stampin' Up!'s annual Convention. Convention is when the new catalog is revealed, lots of cool classes, swaps, make and takes, tours and more take place. Unfortunately, not all of us can go, so back in the day, some enterprising souls got together and established VC Rocks! (and it does!)

We are a chatty, creative and cool group of SU demos, customers and friends. There is a very limited membership window, so if you miss it this year, watch your favorite stampin' lists for hints of it next year in late April and early May! Membership is open until the END OF MAY! (What are you waiting for? I'll still be here when you get back - get to Yahoogroups and search for VC_ROCKS or email vc_rocks-subscribe@yahoogroups.com.

You should have arrived here from http://www.stampinldyglfr62.blogspot.com/, but if not, start hopping here and make your way back around - a complete list is provided at the bottom to help with that!

OK - 'nuff about that - for my share for our Color My World blog hop (gee, I remember that song well!):



This sample uses the Pretty Postage stamp set, blender pens, Watercolor Wonder crayons in Bravo Burgundy, Rose Red, Old Olive, Always Artichoke and Not Quite Navy, plus Mr. Big Shot and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder. The colors used are Old Olive, So Saffron and Whisper White. The SWEET stamp is stamped on Watercolor paper and punched with the new postage stamp punch in the Summer Mini Catalog. Satin ribbon and an antique brad complete the look (with supporting cast of Sticky Strip and Snail).

The blender pen was used to pick up color off the butt end of the watercolor crayons (a different one for each different color - I have mine labeled RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, and PURPLE) and then for the berries, I dabbed Burgundy, swiped my pen on my grid paper and then picked up Rose Red to brighten the color some as I dabbed it on in little dots.

I hope you enjoy my berry little attempt at coloring my world and yours.

Please continue on the blog hop by going to http://createdbyu.blogspot.com - please leave comments along the way, and have fun!

Here is a complete list of the blog hop as Blogger has had some issues this week -
