FM205 Let's get Sketchy!


Hello everyone, and welcome to a new challenge! Tara here as your hostess this week, coming at you with an 'oldie but a goody'. Yes folks, it's time to whip out your brayers. I don't know about you, but I don't use it nearly as much as I should. There are so many great techniques and effects for the brayer, but one of my favourites was always the bouncing brayer technique. So, let's give it a go!

 

This week's Mashup! Challenge:
  • Create a project using "the sketch".
  • Create a project using the "Bouncing Brayer Technique (tutorial)". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project using the Bouncing Brayer Technique and the Sketch". 
The Challenge will close on Wednesday April 22nd @ 6pm EST. Be sure to read the guidelines above under "about the FM" if you are new to our Challenge and Welcome. We can't wait to see what you create with this fun Mash' Up! Check out what the Design Team created below!

Cynthia's Picks for FM203!


Thanks to all our Mashup peeps for playing along with my first hostess challenge.  I loved everyone's creations.  You all did an amazing job either creating those cute little Easter critters, creating for the color challenge or mashing the two together!  It was a tough decision for me to pick winners, but here we go.....





Steph's card caught my eye with her simple water colored background and those super cute little bunnies.  Her card is simply just sweet!


Glamettes



I love how Heidi mashed up the challenge with this cute owl and the use of the colors.  Great job!



Lindsey's simple cards are just precious with her simple layout and the use of the Easter critters.  I love the banner as an added piece of color!


Jean's WCC21 - Bunny Box CASE  of Linda Parker

This is just to super cute.  I love 3-d items and especially when they hold candy!  Jean did an amazing job creating this cute little bunny and mixing in the colors!

Thanks again for joining us, we'll see you all back here tomorrow for a fun new challenge. ~ Cynthia

Breelin's Picks for FM202!


Thank you all for playing along with my challenges this week!  Masculine cards are always tricky for me, but now I have a ton of great ideas!  ~ Breelin 




I love Anja's clean yet sophisticated look she created with this card...great masculine card!
