When Times are Tough

Good morning! I hope everyone had a great time with Bugaboo's 2nd Annual Holiday Chaos, I had a blast playing too! Today starts a new sketch at Bugaboo's Stella Says Sketch and its a pretty simple one.
I chose to use Bugaboo's  Friends are your umbrella and printed it off three times to colour the image, pop up the umbrella and then pop up the flowers. I then used chaulk on the clouds and ground.  Give the sketch a try, you have two weeks and you could win some awesome stamps of your choice!

I'm Outta Here

Good morning! Today Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Operation Write Home and they have a fabulous sketch for us to use.
Here's my take on the sketch. I used Doodle Pantry's Canadian Goose and used prisma pencils/gamsol to colour this Goose, I LOVE how it turned out, the shading is amazing.

Christmas Cactus

Good afternoon! Doodle Pantry is sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches this week which has a sketch and a twist. The twist is Bingo!

My bingo line is ribbon, embossing and flowers. I  printed off Doodle Pantry's Christmas Cactus colour three times so I could cut out the cactus and pop up the flowers. I really like how the cactus turned out but I don't think I would use the snowflake border again, its too open so doesn't showcase the flower as well as it should.
