Sew Many Challenges Blog


I get to show you Donkey with Cart of Hearts. I colored him with my alcohol markers (several brands) then decided that I wanted a different shape beside circle or square so I traced around a hexagon candle that I had here. After cutting it out, I inked the edges with brown. I had found a challenge wanting Cocoa, Gray, and Caramel colors so I hunted up the best that I could find of that. I think the brown and caramel colors look great together. I used my Damask embossing folder again on this, then the brown ink pad again on the raised design. The "ribbon" is a sticker from a heidi swapp tape dispenser.

My card follows several challenges that I wish to enter it in:



Thanks for looking at my card. Now it's time for you to continue on your way to the next person on the blog hop, Suzanne. And don't forget to pick up your Friday Freebie at Sew Many Cards Challenge Blog when you arrive at the end of the hop.
