Straight hair tutorial by Amy Young + Challenge #4!

The fabulous Miss Amy Young over at A Thousand Sheets of Paper has put together another AWESOME hair coloring video, this time it's on doing the "feathered" hair look on straight hair.  And it's also time for Challenge #4! We want you to try out Amy's straight hair technique :0)

We are also SUPER lucky to have the super sweet Susana over at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) to sponsor us this week!  She is offering up an awesome prize: one of the super cool new Viva Decor Pearl pens in Ice White and also a free single rubber stamp from one of the SCACD exclusive stamp lines, which you can see HERE.
