Happy Easter!

Good Morning! Happy Easter weekend. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and that's full of sunshine and family.

Welcome to another edition of Super Challenge Saturday! Joni is hosting this round and she's picked a super sketch that is by none other the super talented Maria Bell. This sketch was so much fun to play with! I hope you like it, too, and join our challenge.

Here is my card that I made with this sketch. All the materials, including the super cute Magnolia stamped image came in a kit swap that I participated in that Jessica hosted. That was a lot of fun, too! I figured I better start using some of these awesome kits!

Unfortunately, because I used a kit I have no idea where anything is from except the stamp. But it was fun to play with anyway. I am so glad the requirements were to include two images because the first one I colored I used my beloved Prismacolor Markers and wasn't quite pleased with the results. I wanted a much more softer look to this bunny, so I used my Kohi-noor pencils and gamsol instead. I am much happier with the results.

Oh my goodness, I forgot!!! I forgot to glitter her wings. All angels and fairies must have some sparkle to their wings!! I couldn't wait to try out my new camera. Yes, it arrived today!!! Whoo-hoo!! I still think my pictures will come out much better if I have more lighting or wait to take pictures in the real daylight! I'm working on some other things that I have to photograph, so I'll definitely try that theory out.

I hope you join us for the challenge. Head on over to Joni and Gabby's blogs to see what fabulous projects they have made. Leave 'em some love, too. When you post on SCS please use keywords BLOGC7.

Mel your card is adorable! Love how soft it looks with using pencils~great job!!!

Gabby said...

Mel...your card is super adorable! Love that Magnolia and how you colored her!

Congrats on the new camera! If you want to photograph at should make a "makeshift studio". What I do is I have an OTT lamp I got at 50% off at M's and just prop up 2 pieces of white watercolor paper (could be any white that's sturdy) right in front on my computer screen and shine the lamp light on the card from above with a little slant forward. Then I just edit using PSP if it needs a bit more light or some managing of the colors. ;) HTH! Have fun with your new camera!

Happy Easter!!! HUGS!
