A Sketch Challenge At Meljen's Designs.

Good Morning everyone!!! I'm just trying to get through the week so I can have a nice three day weekend LOL  Going through the motions! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! We are almost to the end!! I leave work at 3 pm usually, but today they have set up a meeting for me at 4:30 pm, so I will be here late and stuck in rush hour traffic on the way home. Yuck!  I hate that!! I just need to get through a couple more days LOL!!! Enjoy the rest of your week everyone!!!

Today we are starting Challenge #225: Sketch at Meljen's Designs. It's a fun sketch... I can't wait to see what everyone does with it!

For this one I used Little Possum which you can find at the Meljen's Designs Shop. I colored this little cutie with my Copic markers. I did a bit of decoupage.. I popped him up and I popped the butterfly. I added the gems onto the banners. The die cut is a Spellbinders die. The Hang and There are rubons from my stash and the IN are these cute little stickers that I had in my stash. Yes.. tried to stick with the theme of using some things from my stash. LOL All of the papers are from scraps. And then I added the strip of ribbon on the outside and inside.

  • Butterfly: YR61, YR65, YR68, 100, W7
  • Possum Body:W00, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
  • Possum Face: E50, E51, E53
  • Cheeks, Ears, Feet and Tail: R11, R20, R22
  • Branch: E30, E34, E44, E47
  • Leaves: YG01, YG05, YG09

Great design and your coloring is fantastic. Great idea to pop the image up and double it underneath. The dimension adds so much to the design.
