Newsprint and New Releases!

It's Wednesday and that means it's time for another Hambo Hoedown Challenge! Today's challenge is to use newsprint on your creations. If you head over to the Hoedown, you will see what the rest of the Bacon Bits created today using a brand new digi image: NEWSCASTER!

My job today was to have a sneak peek for the brand new RUBBER images that will be released TOMORROW by Hambo Stamps! There are some really fun snowmen, and penguins and leprechauns - lots more - and this adorable duck! Get your sunglasses out!

I used Echo Park's Summer Days designer paper to decide my colors. The DUCK UMBRELLA was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then colored with Copic markers. The sentiment (also brand new!) was also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I added a touch of Spica Glitter pen to his beak, feet and hat. Click on the photo below for a close-up view!

I am excited about these new images and will have another to show you tomorrow! Hope to see you then. And hey --- come play along at the Hoedown! You get a FREE digi image every week you play!

One more quick note - Hambo Stamps is having their LAST SALE OF THE YEAR and today is the last day of the sale that started last week! Get over there today to see what that is all about! (Did I say 30% off??)
