Gretel Sketch

Are y'all ready for another Jacksonbelle Embellishment challenge. This is our 3rd sketch challenge for June. If you have missed the other two, you can find them here and here. When uploading your cards to SCS, please use the keyword JBE058. Don't forget that Lindsey is looking for a few new design team members. Be sure to check out the info here in case you are interested in applying. Martha Stewart Crafts has now been added to the store. I also want to point out that while supplies last, you will receive a free gift with purchase when you spend $15.00!!!! Happy shopping.

I love sketch challenges and I've enjoyed seeing how everyone has interpreted them so far! I couldn't resist inking up my new Gretel Swiss Pixie. She was colored in with Copics before I cut her out with my EK Success Cutterbee scissors. I paper pieced her dress on and went over her wings with Aquamarine Shimmerz, before raising her with dimensionals. This is a good time to remind y'all that the Shimmerz paints are still 30% off!!! As you can see, I used the Martha Stewart Branch punch to dress up my flowers. Just adding those three little branches, really made that corner pop and stand out more. Be sure to swing by and check out what the rest of the design team came up with:
