Open-Minded Crafting Challenge #35 – Shabby Chic

Happy Saturday friends!  It’s time to go Shabby Chic for the new Open-Minded Crafting Challenge.  It’s not a style I do much of, but sure enjoy seeing. The challenge will run through Friday, May 8th with our winners being chosen randomly.  We also have some great sponsors offering terrific prizes for our challenge and the design team will be highlighting their favorites to be featured on the blog.

Here are our sponsors:

For inspiration, I used an All Dressed Up image called, “Sweetie Pie”.  I colored her with Copic Markers and used a My Minds Eye paper pack.  The stitched rectangle die is My Favorite Things and I finished off by distressing the edges and adding a few gems.

Sketch Saturday Challenge #358

Happy Saturday!  Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by our own Niki who is offering a special prize package for our random winner. Thanks Niki!  You have until Friday, May 1st for a chance to win.

Here’s the sketch:


For my card I chose the adorable WPlus9 stamp called, “Miss You Lots.”   I colored her with Copic Markers using the video sample from Dawn of Wplus9.  I used a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die as well as a My Favorite Things Blueprint scallop die.  I finished her off with some hemp ribbon I had in my stash.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!
