First Tiffany Doodles Challenge!

Happy Monday! It's time for the very first Tiffany Doodles Challenge! From now on there will be a challenge starting every 7th of the month that will last through the end of the month. You'll have 4 chances to win up to 7 Digis from Tiffany Doodles! Here is my sample for the first challenge, which is a sketch challenge:

I used Tiffany's amazing Dogwood Branch, placed it over some background text from this Hero Arts kit and printed it onto pink cardstock. Then I printed it once more without the background text to cut out the three blossoms and pop them up. The blossoms are colored lightly with pencils, the leaves of the branch are colored with Copics.



The butterfly is from this Hero Arts stamps set and colored with pencils, too. And the pearls are Prima Marketing:


Cardstock, patterned paper, sentiment and button are all Papertrey Ink. The ribbon is some of my hand-dyed seam binding. And here is the sketch to follow:


I hope you'll play with us! Check out the challenge and all the fabulous samples of the Design Team and Tiffany on Tiffany Doodles!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
