Sketch Challenge

TGIF!! Welcome to another Bellariffic challenge.  This weeks challenge was a
'sketch challenge'.  I hope you had a chance to play along.

For my image this week, I'm using an image from Stamping Bella's latest release.
It's called Lulu's set of fruits - which contains 4 individual images, the one I'm using today is the basket of apples.

Image was coloured with prismacolour pencils and blended with gamsol.  Designer paper is from Jullibean - Old world cabbage stew papers! and the plaid piece is from Basic Grey.  I sponged brushed corduroy distress inks around the edges of the dp paper.  Sponged versamagic wheat around the image.  Finished off with stitching, glitter, twine and a button.

Want a chance to win some bella bucks? Then hop over to Bloggabella and leave a comment on this weeks submissions.

Next week's challenge is so easy you will love it! POP IT UP - yup it's that easy, just use dimensionals to pop up your image or layers on your card and your all set to play in our challenge.  Submit you entry to Emily by thursday night, and again bella bucks up for grabs!

Enjoy your weekend, thanks for stopping by.


ps - Job is going well - thanks for asking! :)

Now how the heck did I miss those apples when they were released? Your card displays how great this is for a seasonal card. OMG I ran right to the store to check it out and add it to my wish list. Your shading is fantastic! The apples look good enough to eat! And the distress inks, bakers twine and button add a rustic, earthy feel. So fall. Love it!

I was over at Emily's yesterday and she was cutting away the stamp you used for your card today. I remembered saying to myself what a perfect stamp for fall but I had picked up so many other stamps I completely for got to get this one, now looks like I have to make a second trip soon cause you did an amazing job with your sketch my friend !!!
