HM Sketch Challenge


This week's HM challenge is a sketch offered by this week's featured vendor, 2 red bananas. The sketch was fun to do and you can see it at the HM Challenge blog. I used my new Basic Grey papers, "Offbeat", along with Baja Breeze and Ivory CS. The name of the stamp featuring a Gruffie this time is "Wool Sew for Friends." I colored it with my Copic markers and I paper-pieced the lamb's little scarf. The sentiment is from PTI's Quilt Sampler. The image was cut out with my circle Nestie and sponged lightly with Baja Breeze. I used my Chocolate half-pearls along the edge. Be sure you take a look at the adorable cards the DT did. This week features the newest DT members plus renditions from the girls from 2 red bananas. Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely Tuesday.
