Share Joy Challenge #32

Hey there, and happy Thursday!

I have the latest Share Joy Challenge to share with you today, and it's a fun one! Wait, they're all fun! I chose the sketch this week. Check it out:

I just adore the Sit & Chat set, and used it on my watercolor panel to create a funky background. I started by stamping the various images in a random pattern onto a piece of water color paper, and colored them in loosely with the  Kuretaki Gansai Tambi watercolor set.  

Once the panel was dry, I cut it in half, trimmed a little off, and adhered it with foam tape to a light gray card base. 

To finish it, I added a white heat embossed sentiment on black card stock, along with a piece of striped paper, and a big twine bow.

Below is the challenge, and you can choose to do the sketch, or the other side, or both! I do hope you'll join us this week! It is so much fun!

Challenge Format:

Each week we will be bring you two types of challenges that you can use separately or together to inspire your creativity. One of the challenges will always be a sketch.
