It’s Saturday and time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge! Today, we break through the winter blues to celebrate an Easter/Spring theme. You have until Friday, February 19th, 2016 to enter. As usual we have some great sponsors who have generously offered prizes to our randomly chosen winners. They are:
1) A Day For Daisies offering a prize of: $12 Gift Certificate
2) The Cutting Cafe offering a prize of: $15 Gift Certificate
For my card today I used a sweet image by A Day For Daisies called, ““Easter Friend”. I used a liquid mask to cover the image and create a watercolor background using pencils. I then removed the mask and completed the image with Copic Markers. The flowers are from My Favorite Things dies as are the circles and the sun. The background is cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched die on Glitz “Hello Darling” paper.
We hope you’ll join us over at Send A Smile 4 Kids for our challenge. We’d also love it if you would consider donating some of your cards to hospitalized children. Here’s how.
Happy Saturday! I’m really excited for todays new Sketch Saturday challenge because I created the sketch! It’s a very simple sketch, but I love it because it allows the image to be the focus. This is especially important for this week because our sponsor is A Day For Daisies an absolute favorite of mine. Tammy, the creator of A Day For Daisies, is offering a very generous $12.00 gift certificate to her store for our random winner! You have until Friday, February 12th for a chance to win.
Here’s my sketch:
My card features the stunning image from A Day For Daisies called, Doll Face 5.” I colored her with Copic Markers and used watercolor pencils for the background. The sentiment is from the Amazing stamp set by My Favorite Things as is the oval die. The banner die is Simon Says Stamp and the Scallop die is Spellbinders.
We’d love for you to join us for Sketch #398 at Sketch Saturday!
