Saturated Canary at SSW


Welcome to another wonderful Wednesday and this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday . We love playing with Arlana's sketches and this week is no different. I had a lot of fun creating with this as my inspiration and I hope you will also.....  


We  have the fabulous artist Krista Smith and her store Saturated Canary as our sponsor and this week's grand prize winner will get 2 free digis from her shop. Here is a 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!:)



I used her image "Orchard Love" to create my card this week. I printed her on Neenah ivory card stock and again on a piece of My Mind's Eye Portebella Road design paper which I then fussy cut so that I could paper piece her dress. I did color the dp some with Stampin Up baja breeze. A strip of SU ruffled ribbon and a Spellbinders apple die cut along with a pearl top pin and we were finished. I hope you will join us at SSW this week as we love seeing your creations. Please don't forget to leave a comment at SSW to be eligible for the grand prize.
Take care my friends and have a wonderful week.

Oh Patti, I feel in love with your sweet little gal and her apples. Your papers are so perfect. I love the brown and blue. I am a blue person myself. You would know it if you walked through my house. Love how you paper pieced her dress and sparkled up the apples and sponged in the sky! It just gives it such a soft and subtle look! She looks like a little princess in the country! Have a great week!
Hugs, Judi
