Friday Sketchers, Pile It On and A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenges
This is a crazy busy month for me with my son getting ready to leave for college. Not too much time right now for making cards. I've been making this card since last Friday..... a few minutes here and a few minutes there.... but fortunately with how long it took, two other challenges came online that fit perfectly for my card.
Pile It On is a challenge blog that every week they will give you one requirement from them and then you are also to combine one or more other challenges with your creation. For those who like to combine challenges this is perfect. This week you are to use 3 or more flowers as well as combine their challenge with one or more other challenges. I have four flowers and two other challenges so I think I have it covered.
My second challenge is A Spoon Full Of Sugar which this week is called "Floral Fantasy". You are to use flowers on your creation. Got that covered!
The third challenge is a sketch from Friday Sketchers. I love this sketch as I usually do every Friday when a new one is posted. I have posted a picture of the sketch below.
I chose to use Tilda with a bee for my image which I colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and blended with Gamsol. This is my first time to give Tilda red hair. What do you think? I'm kind of liking her with red hair myself.
