Kellie's Sketch Challenge #3
sponsored by Softpencil

Hello my blogger buddies!!
I hope the day finds you well.
It's time for round 3 over at
Kellie's Sketch Challenge
and this month,
in addition to this delicious sketch,

we have Softpencil sponsoring us!!
So that means 1 lucky lady, or gent'
will be chosen to receive a $10 gift certificate
to use on adorable Softpencil digi stamps!!

Hop on over to check out their images,
I am a little bummed out I can't win this prize,
because there are some images that are right up my alley.
Kitties, cupcakes, kitties AND cupcakes!!
Wahoo!!! Go take a look and get some idea's of which
images you'll choose if you win the sketch challenge,
wink wink, nudge nudge ;)

Here's my take on the sketch this month:

I used a wonderful Mo image,
(yes, I will learn to digi, I will!!)
I, of course, flipped the sketch,
coloured with Prismacolours,
papers are My Minds Eye (pumpeekins)
and The Paper Studio,
flowers are Prima and the little mulberrys
are from my local scrapbook store,
I've used Inkadinkado flourishes in the corner there,
and an Imaginisce sentiment,
I layered the image 4 times,
not the wisest move for a digi rookie,
but in the end, I was victorious!!
There is a lot of distressing
done in frayed burlap, and the border is
done with good, old-fashioned Fiskars shears.

And here, for your viewing pleasure,
Mr. Luscious, the sultry, the swankadelic
You can see why this image sang to me, huh?

A few more deets for you about
Kellie's Sketch Challenge.
The challenge will run until September 27th
(down under time)
and we will have a winner by the 28th.
Feel free to combine our challenge with
any other challenge out there,
and feel free to use whatever image you fancy,
so long as you use or "interpret" Kellie's sketch,
you are good to go.
I can't wait to see what you all will come up with!!
I was absolutely blown away last challenge.
So many beautiful works,
and it is so very touching to see people playing along
and creating with us, so thank you!!

One more thing before I go,
The super swingin' luscious lumpkin once again!!

Thanks for looking,
hope you'll join us,
