Faber Castell - May 'Take the Challenge' with Mou
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Inspired by
Love to Scrap! - Anything Goes
Eddyth Sue ( from our Mixed Media Monday group ) has issued a small challenge of her own!
"For Monday, May 6, 2013 my challenge for "Sandee Setliff" and anyone else is......pick your favorite piece of work that Tracy has done, whether it's a canvas, journal page, etc. and make a page/canvas/coaster with your take on it! Oh, and post a pic of her work and yours."
Noticed how she picked me out? hmmmm?
Well, not to disappoint anyone, and I am always up for a challenge!
 So I picked this canvas piece from Tracy's work:
I love that field of colorful flowers and since it fits the garden theme with Mou's challenge, it was an easy choice. Here is my little garden card:

My background is a wash of gelatos, the flower outlines are stamped and then colored in with more gelatos. I tried using the pastel pencil to outline the "canvas" but it didn't go over the gelato layer very well, so I used pens instead.

Faber Castell:
gelatos- metallic grape,blueberry,mint,melon and gold
pastel pencil
yellow Aquarelle pencil

Stazon ink
American Crafts - flowers
gems - misc
Ranger - stickles
Close to my Heart - bee stamp
Studio G - flower stamp
Sharpie - for outlining and doodling

Oh, and for all you stickle addicts
 ( yes, I am one of them ) I found a new challenge site JUST for them! lol heaven...just sayin'...♥
All that Stickles -Icicle Linky Party ( used on the bee's wings, and in the center of the stamped flowers )
