A New Sponsor at SSW


Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday's challenge this week were we are welcoming a new sponsor, Saturated Canary .



Here is a little bit about her:

My name is Krista Smith.  I am the artist behind the Etsy shop, Saturated Canary Digis.  I began working in the stamping world about a year ago when I was hired to create rubber designs for the sweet Scottish company, Sugar Nellie.  They launched my artwork under the name 'Simply Sassy.'  I moved into the digital world just this past month (it's been a super busy month, indeed!).  And-- I love it!!  There is a little more freedom here, as I can create anything that pops into my head:)!  I am so humbled by the artistic talent of the girls coloring in my designs-- it is truly an inspiration!  Likewise, I am so thankful for the friendships I've made in this wonderful and lovely crafty community!  It's been a true delight!  I'd love for you to stop by my challenge/inspiration blog, Saturated Canary Challenge and join in the fun...And, while you're there, click over to my personal blog (Saturated Canary) and introduce yourself!  I am a bit eclectic and touch on everything from family (I've got me a great one!) to fashion (obsessed!)...Please say 'hi!'...I'd love to be friends!:)


This week's sketch:



I had such a fun time coloring in this image "Nevaeh" and giving her life. As many of you are already aware...I don't do a lot of life like images and this is always a challenge for me. I added stardust pen to her lovely dress and love the sparkle irl. My papers are a new find at our local Walmart where they are carrying Studio G products now, along with that cute sentiment. It was on a large pack of adhesive chipboard sentiments for only 97 cents. Love it...the paper was the same price for 5 sheets.

And look at this wonderful stamp that matches....also the same price!



I love creating with Arlana's sketches and hope that you will try to join us this week. I think once you try one of our sketches you will be hooked, I know that I was.
We appreciate everyone that plays along with us each week and I know you will enjoy our great blog. These ladies are the most supportive and creative ladies around and you will find something to inspire you at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, so hop on over and take a look around.

Card Details:
Paper: Stampin' Up, Studio G dp
Ink: Copics, SU eggplant envy and so saffron

Patti this is so beautiful. I love how you colored her - such a great color palette. And the softness you achieved is outstanding. Don't you just love the variety of images we're showing? A great sponsor for sure. I love your chipboard sentiment - it's really perfect as the embellishment in sketch and a sentiment all in one! Hope you have a super terrific week.
Hugs,
Sharon :)
