Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #9



It's time for another MIDNIGHT MADNESS SKETCH CHALLENGE over on the "priscillastyles" blog. I have come to really look forward to doing this challenge because they are usually a little more "detailed" than I'm used to doing and that really does "challenge" me!!




This week I decided to pick one of my Basic Grey paper packs and "go from there". This is the "Ambrosia" pack and it's not one I usually reach for ... so that made it even more fun! My main image is by Inkadinkado, was stamped with Versafine Black and embossed using Detail Clear Embossing Powder. I've used Gelly Roll "Stardust" pens to color in the butterfly and SU watercolor pencils to color the flower. My side button embellishments are from a Bucket O'Buttons and I've used Michael's gold metallic elastic cording for the threading as well as for the antenna's on the butterfly (see close up view).
Well, I had fun creating today and I hope you did too! If you haven't taken the time to check out this challenge blog ... please jump on over there right now!! Not only are they fun sketches to do each week but the prizes and "money" they are giving away is nothing short of AMAZING!! Happy Day to All!!
