Crafty Challenge Blog Hop

Welcome to today’s challenge with the Crafty Collaborations group. If this is your first time hopping with us, we are happy you are here. We are a group of demonstrators from around the world sharing our crafty ideas to inspire your creativity. If you have hopped with us before, we are happy you are back to see more inspiration from us.

Today’s challenge is from the dice roll and I combined it with this color sketch.

I started with a Fresh Freesia card base and then added several layers. I used a blending brush to create the background behind the milkshake, added some pearls, and loved how it turned out. What flavor milkshake would you call this? I am thinking maybe a purple cow.

Items I used from the dice roll: Regals, I felt the Fresh Freesia fit that (this is an in-color color,) and pearl. For the color sketch, I used Fresh Freesia, Smoky Slate, and Basic Black. You can download the free tutorial below.

Now let us hop on over to Lisa Whitehead of The Paper Academy and see what she has created for us.

You'll receive everything you need to make 9 cards (3 each of 3 designs) measuring 5½" x 4¼", along with coordinating envelopes. Each card design features a fun peek-through window scene, and you'll love the cute precut critters and labels, fun raindrop elements, and the sweet springtime photopolymer stamp set that come in your kit.
