Blue Fern Studios March Sketch Challenge

Oh you're going to have fun creating with the March Blue Fern Studios Sketch Challenge!  Look at all the opportunities to use your Blue Fern Studios chipboard pieces.  The papers are from the Blue Fern Garden paper collection, and I'm using the "Timeless" paper page.  Come on over to the blog to find out how you can enter and win some prizes.

Here's a close up of the Grande Cage: Apply white paint to the base of the chipboard, then apply green paint or use ink,  and finally add some black ink sparingly on one side of the cage, then finish the cage off with some dabs of white paint. 

Use your brick chipboard piece as a stencil and add molding paste, then stamp with your favorite script stamp. Add some ink sparingly under the brick pieces, and then paint the brick chipboard and glue to the stenciled work.

Thanks for stopping by.
