Saturday 15 April 2017


Today is reminder day for the new SheepSki Designs Blog Challenge.  Challenge #1 went live on 1 April 2017 and closes on 30 April 2017.  So I though it appropriate to do a mid month reminder, I also had a lucky winner to announce :)

The theme for this month is ANYTHING GOES.  You can use any designers image, you don't have to use one of mine but if you do you'll bag yourself an extra image if you're picked as a winner or top three.

This is my inspiration I made for it.  I've used my FUCHSIAS image to create this.  I printed it big, huge in fact.  My original plan was to make it a whole background and put a smaller version on top.  I may to this later if I remember.  I tend to have idea overload and forget a lot of what I wanted to do unless I write it down!

You can buy my images with 10% off by quoting SKIANDREA10.
The image was coloured with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  In the leaves I've used a little yellow for the highlight of the light source.  On the fuchsias I've just used the white of the card stock and very softly coloured over the top with pencil to blend to the surrounding colours.

Once I'd coloured it and was hunting around for design papers for something else I spotted this paper from 13 Arts.  You can find it here at Scrap & Craft.  When I saw it I though it would make a perfect background for part of the large fuchsias I'd coloured.  Behind it is a piece of black card just to add a frame.

So off I went fussy cutting, the stamen were a bit tricky but I got there without cutting anything off LOL!

The added sentiment is a wood chip one from Scrapiniec and I've just coloured it with black COPIC.

Hope you love my inspiration and we see you over at the challenge - not many people know about it yet.
AND if you didn't already know I also have a Facebook Group where you can show off your creations with my images and enter them into my challenges there :D
