Color Challenge

Just Us Girls (JUGS) has a fun pink, yellow, and green color challenge.  I recently saw a stencil that looked like a water blob, but it was sold out.  No problem - I made my own with some old drafting film and my Scan and Cut!

Here are their colors:

I used Distress Oxides Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, and Twisted Citron, and added the Ranger sentiment in Basic Grey.  I flicked on a bit of water, using a fan brush, a trick I learned from Cathy Zielski.  The shape of the brush definitely makes a difference!!

You're A Hot Mess

Paper Craft Crew has a horizontal sketch challenge.  Thought it was a great way to use a Color Burst background I had in my stash, and the Hero Arts Sentiment was perfect for the "messy" strips.  

This sketch will be great for the many strips of patterned paper scraps.  

Send a Smile for Kids has a fun Thank You challenge running through the end of the month.  Come join us!
