Wild Poppies

I love checking out the challenges and this week a couple of them really caught my eye. One was on JUGS - using fabric. That is something I had not tried before. Then MFP wants "not ribbon". I had a good time with these. I did realize that coloring on fabric takes a steady hand and do NOT get too close to the lines because the color will bleed so don't look too close!
The sketch is from Midnight Madness. Not perfect but I do believe it works. I really do like sketch challenges - they get my creative juices flowing.

Thanks for stopping by and your comments are always treasured!
God Bless,
