The latest Stella says Sketch challenge (#108) is now up and running and here is the sketch for the current challenge: 


Such an easy one to follow, don't you think?  Here is how I interpreted it :

The Bugaboo image featured on my card is Skye Pencil Pics - Lilies and is available in the Bugaboo Stamps Store.  My very favourite flowers are lilies, especially this kind, as I feel they are so peaceful and their fragrance is just beautiful! 

I sized the image so that it would fit exactly in my oval diecut and then printed it onto watercolour paper.  The colouring medium I used is alcohol markers (Copics, Nellie Snellen and Spectrum Noir) and the highlights are done with a white gel pen. Although it can't be seen here, the entire oval image has been covered in Clossy Accents and IRL looks just gorgeous.  Try as I might, I couldn't get the camera to pick up the gloss.  Once I had chosen my base CS for the image, it was clear that the card would be perfect for a sympathy card, and so I added a sympathy sentiment.

I hope you will join us for this challenge, as the prizes offered are so generous - as always on Bugaboo challenges.  No wonder Bugaboo Stamps is first on the list of Top 100 Digital Stamping Sites.  We need your votes to keep us there, so link here to cast your vote, please.

In addition to our REGULAR Stella Says Sketch prizes, One lucky winner will win a great prize from our sponsor for this challenge!!  I am thrilled to announce that our challenge is being sponsored by
