Hello there, and how are we all doing today?

Did you know there is a new Artistic Expression feature by yours truly over on the My Favorite Things Blog.  
Today, however, I have something a little different for you all.  I'm not sharing the whole card making process, instead I am focusing on one small section, detailing how I approach and execute the colouring............

I hope you find it informative and thanks for dropping by today.

Hi there, I'm back with another Sketch Challenge.  
I don't know about you but the colouring part is the easy bit, it's the card design I sometimes find more of a challenge, so the sketches really help.

Todays sketch is a very simple one, so I kept the whole design clean and simple.  I chose a leaping Santa from Jingle all the Way, stamping him with Hybrid Cement Gray ink and colouring the image with Copics.
The Frame element was created using Stitched Mini Scallop Square Die-Namics and Stitched Square with MFT Smooth White.  I added a touch of colour behind Santa with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and dots of Nuvo Gloss Simply White to finish.

As for the sentiment, I stamped Happy Christmas from Snow Globe Sentiments with Versamark ink on vellum, heat embossing it with White Embossing Powder.  It was then cut out using an Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strip.

To add a little dimension to the card I adhered Santa with foam squares.

Now it's your turn, use the sketch above, create a masterpiece and post it on the MFT Challenge Blog. You could be the lucky winner of a $50 Voucher from mftstamps.com.

It's Wednesday, so that means it's time for another Sketch Challenge on the MFT Challenge Blog,
who wants to play along with me?

I decided to get a little Yeti from Beast Friends inky and have some fun with Copics, Caran D'Ache pencils and a white gel pen to create his fur.

The hombré background was created using Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress ink.

The little guy is not remotely worried about sitting on the ice as he's enjoying a mug of hot chocolate, whilst wrapped in a lovely warm scarf, no wonder he's looking pleased with himself.

I stamped a sentiment from the Hug in a Mug set, with Milk Chocolate and Blue Yonder Premium ink, adding highlights to "Hot Chocolate" with a white pencil.

Now it's your turn!
