Truly Scrumptious blog - sketch challenge #2
The Truly Scrumptious blog posted another sketch challenge yesterday. I spent my entire evening working on this and some other things for another challenge - you'll see those other things over the next few days.
This sketch was FUN! I love the four square panels in the background - it gives you so many possibilities. You could make them all the same, or all different, or half and half...... totally fun. The butterfly is a digi-image from Sweet N Sassy. My dear friend Chrissy illustrated this gorgeous butterfly. I am constantly amazed at her artisitic abilities.
I colored the butterfly with Copic markers and then sponged some blue ink around it. I punched a hole in the right side of the circle, fed the celery ribbon through it, and attached a prima flower with a brad right onto the end of the ribbon.
Guess what? I just re-read the Truly Scrumptious post, and they wanted handmade buttons on the card too! Ack! Well........ I didn't do the buttons, and I have about 5 minutes to get to work, so I won't have time to change that. It might help if I actually read the postings instead of looking at the pictures. LOL
