Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge MMSC6
Happy Tuesday everyone!
First of all I would like to welcome Allison to my blog.....thank you so much for joining and I really hope you enjoy checking out the things that I make. I have to admit I'm not always the most efficient at getting new cards and projects posted....but I do my best...so thanks again for joining..you just made my day brighter :)
Well it's that time of the week again.....time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge!!! It doesn't seem like a week has gone by since the last one......where does the time go to? I hope it's not just me that feels the days slipping away.......way tooo quickly!!!!!
OK For those of you who haven't checked out this challenge yet, you really should coz they are a lot of fun! Some sketches will really challenge you but you will always have plenty of samples to look at from the design team so you can get an idea of what you could do with the sketch. The entries we have had are amazing and each week we see more newcomers to the challenge which is very rewarding, especially for the DT. We all get inspired by your entries and this is what it's all about...having fun and learning from each other! There are soooo many talented peeps out there....and we love to see your creations. So come along and give it a try, you never know....you might just get hooked on the Midnight Madness Challenges!!
For my card this week I chose another Elisabeth Bell image, (no surprise there!!) one of the Country girls collection called Painting Rainbows. I colored her in prismacolor pencils and copics then raised the whole image on pop dots. The ribbon detail on the left was a little tricky to place initially but eventually they all stayed where they were supposed to be!! The flowers I added some Martha Stewart glitter in turquoise to give a little sparkle, then some gems from Darice, then finished them off with leaves which were made using a Martha Stewart punch. On the top right corner I added a hat pin with plastic beads, just to finish the card off. Hope you like it!!
