Artistic Outpost is celebrating our 2nd Birthday! You have a chance to get a present from us by participating in our challenge. The challenge is pretty simple, just use this sketch and create a Fall or Birthday Themed card using Artistic Outpost images. You'll have until October 23rd to leave your link on the Artistic Outpost BlogArtistic Outpost
, using Mr. Linky.
One winner will be chosen on October 31st, through the Random Number Generator, be sure to check back to see if you've won. The prize is a $25 gift certificate to the Artistic Outpost Store. Note, Artistic Outpost Designers are NOT eligible for the prize

Here's my sample using one of the new Designs from Old Grist Mill plate. Its the watercolor markers technique from Technique Junkies.

cold connection metal

I tried a new technique using cold connection metal from an online group I belong too. Here's my first attempt. Its made from copper and brass sheeting, I thought it would be fun to have an arch shape that had hinged doors. Tricky but I did it. Also really hard on the hands. My metal was way to heavy. Live and learn!
