Squigglefly Challenge 3312 & Outlawz Copic Challenge

It's Monday and time for a new Squigglefly challenge.  This week the challenge is handed down by Rhonda's Rowdy Rascals - woo hoo team!  The challenge this week is to try a new technique.  Well, I tried 2 different techniques and, truthfully, I will need to practice up on one of them!  The first technique I had used just in tiny, tiny amounts before - and that's using Crystal Effects.  I hadn't tried puddle amounts before.  I couldn't really get the picture to reflect the shininess of the water/Crystal Effects, but IRL it's really shiny!  The second technique I need lots of practice on is using the flicking technique on hair.  Always before, I put down the color and blended it - leaving some white space. This time, I tried using flicks for the strands or locks of hair - and I need to practice!!!

Sure hope you can join us this week - and try a new technique.  If you haven't used Squigglefly images before - there are some freebies on the shop site.  Once  you try one - you'll love them!

And, Squigglefly offers an awesome rewards program.

It's a great deal! You sign up for the rewards by clicking on "my Squigglefly" on the home page. Once you're signed up it keeps track of what you spend. Every time you spend $15.00 -- you get credit for a free digi. You can use the credits anytime you want - let them build up or use them right away! If you've already purchased several dollars worth of digis and you're just now finding out about rewards, you can write Squigglefly and let them know and they will give you credit for the money you've spent during the current month. Now, that's a real deal!

I am also entering this in the Outlawz Friday Copic Challenge which started 8/17.
