This week at Sassy Cheryls' challenge, Sassy Jeni (our little Flip-Flop) is hostessing a challenge to color our image on Kraft paper. Well... you should have heard all of the rustle and bustle in the group as we tried to get our arms around it. Initially, everyone was at a loss as to what to do. But, you know what.. it turned out so darn well! You should check out all of the creations at the challenge blog.
I elected to use this darling Sassy image...
I colored her with Prisma Pencils... masked the image and chalked the background with a light green and aqua chalk ink (Versa Magic and Color Box Pigment Cat's Eyes) to create an illusion of a frame. I chose a ribbon from my ever-growing stash (I think my ribbon supply multiples like the hangers in my closet).
And, after a bit of apprehension for me (and my fellow Sassy team mates), I think this turned out great. It's a technique I'll certainly try again and again.
'Hope you will join us this week.. Sassy Cheryl is a very generous boss and she gives away a $5 gift certificate to her shop each week to one lucky randomly-selected participant.. and also sponsors a lot of challenges.
