Isabella's Sketch Book - Blog Hop & and Anything Goes Challenge

Hi and welcome to our bi-monthly blog hop at Isabella's Challenges! Make sure you visit all the blogs and leave a comment because there is going to be an Isabella's image of your choice given away in every single blog!! The hop remains open until Friday, July 3rd (included).

My blog happens to be a first in the hop so not to worry, you haven't missed anything yet!! This week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES!

Isabella has let us to use an image that will not be available in her shop before next week.




I did the colouring with my trusty Copics and Sakura pens. I printed out 3 copies of the image and mounted some parts with glue gel to add dimension and depth.




Patterned papers are from SEI, all the buttons and ribbon from my stash. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft.




COPICS:
basket: E49/47/57/35/43/41
blue bcgr.: B34/41/0000, o
Purples: RV95/93/91/0000, 09, V15
leaves: G29, G16,YG17, YG13, YG00
lemons: Y08/06/04/02/00/0000

Your next stop is Cec and her wonderful creation - you're up for treat!
