MFT Sketch Challenge; CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge

Hi there,
I thought it would be fun to play along with the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge this week with some of my new goodies ~

I masked the background to create the sky and hills, colored the images with Zig Clean Color Markers, and added Glossy Accents to the balloon. Here is a close-up (darkened a little so you can see the details):


After seeing Chrissy Larson's awesome sketch this week, I also wanted to play along at CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge and created two cards:

For my first card, I played with three shades of gray, and on the darkest one, I stamped the fox with white pigment ink. I embossed the sentiment with white EP, and for contrast, I added a bold pink panel.

I recently bought Concord & 9th Layering Leaves dies, and wanted to create an autumn themed take on the sketch:

I used Peerless watercolors for the leaves, and stitched rectangles for the angled panels. I stacked the leaves to create dimension and added a natural jute bow.

Here are the lovely sketches I used for my inspiration:

As always, thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great week,

Tag You're It Challenge #56 - Reminder

Hello again ~
As Guest Designer for the current challenge at Tag You're It, I'm back with another tag, and a reminder for anyone who would like to play along ~  Our inspiration tag was created by Taheerah Atchia, and I am loving how she used the over-sized bold sentiment on her tag. Here is Taheerah's tag ~

Here is my 2nd tag ~

This time, I used a bold black sentiment, and since I zoomed in on the beautiful roses she placed in the background, I decided to use my MFT rolled roses die, some white felt, and a pastel pink pearl gem. I splattered some gold shimmer mist, added some twine, and that was it!

So, come on over to the Tag You're It Challenge Blog and play along! Thanks so much for stopping by,
