New Beginnings

Today is the first challenge of 2011 for the Tuesday Taggers team, but we decided to to start the New Year with some changes. So the challenge is renamed as Try it on Tuesday Challenge and the blog has been revamped. Do please stop by to check it out and find out just  what we are going to be getting up to in 2011.  
The theme for the  first challenge is "New Beginnings" and we would like you to include anything new on a card. Maybe new baby, new home, new job etc.
I decided to go with new day dawning.  Well I needed to try out my brayering techniques again and boy do I need some practice. I'm certainly no Barbara Gray!! Anyway I've had fun getting a bit messy and that's what our challenge is all about, trying new things and having fun.

The stamps are all Clarity, the cottage and naked tree stamped using Adirondack Earthtones Espresso and the cottage was coloured wth copics. The foliage was stamped using the Big and Juicy Mountain Meadow pad, which was also used to brayer the sky.  The hills were brayered using the Big and Juicy Waterfall pad.
So now it's over to you, we would love to see your take on this new challenge if you'd like to join in with the fun.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
