Christine's Sketch Challenge


I was excited to learn that my friend Christine from dolcreations is guest designer this week for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge blog. Her challenge is a sketch challenge with the option of adding a quilt effect. I colored my Tilda with copics and used DP's from Basic Grey's Marrakech for my background and quilt squares. The blue squares are stamped with a quilt-block stamp from PTI's Quilter's Sampler and cut with EK Success' square punch, which fits those blocks perfectly. My sentiment is also from the same set and the inside of the card continues the sentiment with "is sewn with love and measured with kindness." My ribbon is covered up with the quilt blocks but it's there. My solid brown is SU's Soft Suede and my solid blue is PTI's Ocean Tides. The light brown DP is a single sheet I ordered and I don't remember it's name. I'm glad that I got to play along with this challenge. I'll be MIA for a few days while I go visit my babies in AZ. I'm taking several images and several Copics so I can color some. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week-end.
