It’s good to be back with another sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches. This week Jen Mitchell has a great, simple sketch to get us back in the creative spirit. She is so masterful with making CAS cards that are so beautiful.
I decided to use a floral image from the new set, Peaceful Petals. It has some beautiful images that are perfect for coloring. I used a blender pen and my ink pads for coloring.
We hope you can join us for this first challenge of 2014. You can go by the Freshly Made Sketches site and check out what the rest of the design team made for some inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
