Catch The Bug Challenge

This weeks challenge theme on the Catch The Bug blog is “Black, Pink, Green” and a sketch.  You can find all the details and what the prizes are on our blog.

Skelekinz Balloon

The image used is called “Skelekinz Balloon”.  I colored the image with Copics, and used the oval and scalloped dies by Spellbinder to layer the image.  I printed the balloon in different sizes and then added some floss for string.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp.  The designer paper is scraps from past projects.



Simon Says Stamp – Dies and Punches.

The Paper Shelter – Challenge #32 Anything Goes.

Celebrate The Occasion – Challenge #31 Balloons.

Crafty Sentiments – Happy Birthday.

Southern Girls – Challenge #28 Anything Goes.
