In honor of our 9th Anniversary, you are challenged to cut nine 1-1/2” squares from white cardstock, then alter all nine of the squares using a variety of techniques, colors, stamps, etc. Be sure to do something different to each square!  Cut lots of extra squares so you can experiment and have fun!  If you are running short on ideas you can always go through the Make It Monday archives.  Once you have completed them, adhere the nine squares to a 5-1/2” x 5-1/2” square card front and share their masterpiece on our InLinkz list below!

This is my 9 square techniques:

Starting with the upper left hand corner...utilizing washi tape to either cover or accent a card, next stamping an image onto printed designer paper, last in that row gradient coloring.

Second row, Two-toned stamping by Danielle Flanders Make it Monday, wet embossing a design, printing the same image onto varying sizes of cs.

ast row, dry embossing (kinda difficult to see), next to that watercoloring technique and lastly
introducing different colors using a cover plate border die.

That's it for now, love all the challenges and prizes by Papertrey Ink celebrating their 9th successful year in business!
