One of my favorite types of Challenges are Sketch Challenges, and our super talented hostess, Dawn, has chosen a Sketch for our Sassy Cheryl's Challenge this week. Here is the Sketch:
Autumn Bench Sitter Sally:
I absolutely love the new Sally and Lucy Lou images and had to color this darling image for this challenge. The colors are to be pink so I added green and fall colors after all there are leaves and her name is Autumn bench sitter!!! I didn't make that up.
The sketch was fun and the I tried to keep the colors soft, which I kind of struggle with. I used the fun brown plaid dp from the Me and My Big Ideas paper fall pack and then added a french country pink and green to coordinate with the colors of the image. A trio of brads were added to each triangle along with a double bow ribbon I actually tied without having to go back to the tutorial LOL...it may stick now :) and to keep with the fall theme I added some leaves punched from kraft cs and sponged with greens and pinks to coordinate.
Funny story about my card and Pat's card. We really had no idea we were going to pick the same image or color the same colors so closely so I emailed her when I uploaded my card to the DT folder saw her card, and apologized for using the same image and colors as she had...I swore she sent me subliminal messages in my sleep. She was a sweet heart that she is and said that great minds just think alike... It is funny how the DT so often picks the same images each week but not often they color the same colors LOL.
Be sure to stop by the Challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT cards and then check out the newest images Sassy Cheryl has created in the Store...I'm tellin you she has really been creating up a storm with the Sally and Lucy Lou sweetie pies lately. Love em and I know you will too.
Don't forget to play along in the Sassy Cheryl's challenge . Remember you no longer have to use a Sassy Cheryl's image to play along but you do have to follow the challenge rules and if you do use a Sassy Cheryls image you get entered two times in the drawing for a 5 dollar gift certificate.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day!!
