The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge! :)

I’ve been really trying to keep up with Kathy Racoosin’s: The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge. I think the idea is brilliant and I’ve always enjoyed seeing what people make and how they keep up. Well, I thought I’d give it a whirl! 🙂

This card below is what I started on day #14, and finished on day #15. I used the Jumbo Dot Cover-Up as a stencil and colored those in with Watercolor pencils. Didn’t know where this card was going when I started, but this is where I landed. 🙂

hawkins_jill_happy season_00_wmI think this is the first card I’ve actually completed for the 30 Day Color Challenge? I’m good with that. It’s more about the coloring, trying, and experimenting for me anyway. Plus, the good news is, I have a lot of bits in the hopper for future cards! 🙂

photoMFT Sketch Challenge #250 begins on the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration Blog today!

This week’s sketch:

MFT_WSC_250Here is my take this week:

hawkins_jill_elfie_wmI sort of stretched the center panels wider and shifted the feature element (in this case, the Elf’s selfie) to the side. I then used the letters for the banner element. Just a little creative interpretation right? 🙂

*elfie! I still giggle.

hawkins_jill_joy tag_reWMOh my word–How much do I love the way the Four Way Chevron die cut with the Snow Drifts Cover Up and then with the Stitched Tag. I pulled it out of my machine after all the cutting, and just sort of gasped! LOL 🙂 Be sure to go join in the fun!
