Hi today for today's post I did a challenge on split coast. It was to use your white gel pen in your background. This is the card that I came up with for the challenge. The Stamp set is from Inkadinkado Stamps. I stamped the flowers in using memento ink and embossed in in clear embossing powder. Then colored the image in with watercolor pencils. For the background I used the cuttle bug on the card stock which is Bazzill and I used the Swiss dots. Sorry I forgot the maker of the designer paper. The white on all of the flowers is the gel pen. I only added the ribbon,wanted to keep it simple because I had alot going on in the background. Thanks for looking. Stop back again. Thanks Meg

Weekend Sketch

You're the cherry on top. this week you can find this sketch# 80. I still have not figured out how to link to other blogs yet. The stamp is A Muse, I had to color it in with copic markers. My daughter favorite ice cream is strawberry so I used RV10&R22 and R27 for the cherry on top. The saucers that hold the ice cream were colored in with prismacolor markers warm color gray 10 and 20. I cut out the circles with nessies and used ribbon to round everything out. thanks for stopping. Have a great Mother's Day Meg
