15th July - sketch & colour

 Today we have a special challenge as you notice we've moved our challenge ahead by a few days to join up with Stuck?! Sketches! 

We have a lovely summery colour palette for you and they have kindly given us a great sketch to create with.

Join in with both the sketch and colour pallette and you can link up to both our blogs to be in with a chance of winner both prizes! 


Last year I got my Diploma for Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language and never got to scrap this photos, but when I saw this colorful color combo and the 3 photos sketch I knew It was the time for use it. Really like because I fell the photos match de palette.

Last summer DS11 got his own boat, a small RIB. We live at the sea side and he has spent hours on his boat. But the RIB wasn't perfect for him - he wanted a boat with more room for friends and a boat more convenient for activities like fishing, so he sold the RIB this spring and got hands on a 10 foot dinghy. The dinghy looked as new, even if it was second hand. All boats, small or large, need polish before going in the water:

II flipped the sketch, and stayed as close to the colour palette as possible :-)

I just love this partnership, as I'm blessed enough to be a member of the talented team over at Stuck?! Sketches, too!  I found the bright palette uber challenging, but I think I pulled it off with lots of beautiful papers from Jenni Bowlin and October Afternoon and photos that fit it perfectly.  And my new coffee stain stamps looked just like the popped bubbles my daughter blew onto her page to boot!


I loooove the sketch and the color palett suits me perfectly. This is my page:

I made the background using lots of gesso, masks, stamps and mists.

I decorated with butterflies, flowers and pearls.

I used some A2Z Scraplet chipboards; a Butterfly Scribble Frame and a Beautiful-word which I painted with gesso, then with distress ink and finally I outlined with a black pen.

The background was created with The Crafter's Workshop stencil and Dylusions Ink sprays.
