A Mashup with a little Connie & Mary!

This week at the Friday Mashup our Hostess is Heidi and she has created a very unique Challenge.. Create project using a splash of one color with a neutral palette and use your Pencil!

You can use your pencil to shade something, draw something etc. The sky is the limit. I choose the set For the Birds and the Sketch from this week's Create W/ Connie & Mary Challenge. I love this sketch!



I started with a Smoky Slate card base.. Smoky Slate is one of the new colors you will see with the Upcoming 2013-14 SU catalog.. This is a soft cool grey. I cut a second layer and ran it through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Embossing folder and I adhered it with some dimensionals. 


Then I added a layer of Real Red DSP and then I stamped my Birds onto a piece of Whisper White in Smoky Slate. I took the heart image from another stamp in the same set. I colored that in with my Real Red marker. Then I colored the birds in with a pencil. 


I added some Real Red Stitched ribbon along the Birds image panel and I adhered them all with More Dimensionals to give lots of height to every layer. 


Head over to the Friday Mashup and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week. The challenge is open until Wednesday at 6pm EST.  The Create with Connie & Mary challenge is open until Wednesday at noon EST. 

Thanks for Stopping by!!
