Sketch Challenge and the CBC (below)

The Sketch Challenge today on SCS was very simple. I used the layout to give you a sneak peek of one of four sets that will be released in June by Mark's Finest Papers.

This set is called Hollyhock and Pears.

I watercolored the hollyhock and hummingbird, punched a fence to add the sentiment, sponged the background, and added some glitter and brads for texture.

I hope you like what I've done with the sketch and images, and that you will check out MFP!

Creative Belli Challenge #92

The Belli Challenge this time is to make something using Sketch #2, and to use only FLAT embellishments. This is the layout ---------->

What I really love about the Belli Challenge is that every challenge calls for using what you already have in your stash..... no need to go out and buy something else! In this case, I had to put on my thinking cap, because I love to add bumpy layers. Making something flat is alien to me. I used a stamp I've had forever and punched it with the ticket punch as the embellishment. The sentiment (which is tiny) came from a miniscule part of a SU stamp in the set called Card Games.

I hope you will feel moved to join us this week. Please check out the DT entries, and please add your own with Mr. Linky to the See you again in two weeks!
