One of the reasons I participate in sketch challenges is to improve my skills. I have never been an artist, sort of speak, when it comes to coloring and drawing… so I took the opportunity to practice with this cute bird from the Language of Friendship stamp set. I discovered that I really need to practice my blending skills. The perfect place to practice was with the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge #131. Challenges are an excellant opportunity to practice. When you participate let me know and I’ll be on the lookout.
Mata-’bout Tip: Hold on to scraps of paper you have left over after a project. They come in handy on other projects. This card had a little too much open space for me, so I took some small scraps I had leftover from a previous project and used them to punch out cute tiny blossoms. They added an extra dimension and color to the Chocolate Chip paper.
