Some Challenges...

Seeing as we had such a wet day yesterday I managed to get 2 challenges done and another almost done, it just needs to be finished off. It really helped that most of the challenges this week are sketches, so I really only had to think about papers/embellies :D

Whiff of Joy #46

Sketch by Bev

I used the sweet "Sitting Fall Willow" from my kit, coloured her with distress inks. and shaded the background with Antique Linen. Then using my craft knife I cut out around her feet/legs before using the curved rectangle nesties so that she was sitting on the end. The sentiment is also from the kit and I cut it out using the oval nesties, then mounted it onto a scalloped oval.

My papers are Bloom & Grow and I paired them with brown core'dinations. I used the MS Doily punch to make the scallops on Bev's sketch. The ribbon is from a kit that I bought but I can't remember the brand.. and it's driving me nuts!! lol.


Friday Sketchers meets Anyone for Anya

Friday Sketchers has this wonderful sketch by Heidi:

The challenge over on Anyone for Anya is Buttons, Bows & Brads. I used Flutter Anya, isn's she just too sweet??!! I coloured her in using distress inks. The brads are PM Pearl 'Pinks', the flowers and buttons are from my stash. The little sentiment is a Studio G.
