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!
