I’ve completed my 1st Challenge (I think)

Posted: September 9, 2007 in Uncategorized

Well, I think I have at least!! It was the sketch challenge that I saw on Beate’s blog – SC140 (see left for link).

As I don’t own many stamps I had to get creative. I used K&Co papers for the backgrounds adhered to the card using brads. Then I used some braids/ribbon from my stash (local haberdashery shop) and then I used images from Pink Petticoat’s Lola Rose & Lilli collection. I coloured them in using watercolour pencils and Marvy Le Plume watercolour markers.

I’m pretty happy with the results – although they look much better IRL. The photos are pants as usual – must get round to getting a good photo-editing program, one that doesn’t require a manual the size of two telephone directories to understand it. I have Paint Shop Pro, but can’t understand the first thing about it – far too complicated for my little brain!!
