1) Today's sketch challenge (SC266)
2) one of this week's six Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Anniversary Challenges, FTTC52C, to make a fruity birthday card
Now that I have SU Stampin' Pastels and some blender pens, I couldn't wait to try coloring a stamped image with them!! So this is my first attempt. It was a little harder than I thought it would be, but hopefully I'll get better--and it will become easier--with practice. I do like the result, though!! But I can definitely see some things that will need to be improved.
This was such a fun sketch and these colors made me happy. I had a nice morning making this card!!
Thanks for looking!

This is such a nice, fresh birthday card. Love your image panel and the coloring and your two silver brads. Great job.

I think they really take getting used to, but I think you did a great job, Emily!! Better than I would do...that's why I never got them. I'm too scared!! I love the fruit. The lemon slice added as a circle is wonderful. Well done SC!!
