“COW”ABUNGA For Sparkle N Sprinkle Sketch Challenge

Fall is here and October has snuck up on us.  This means it is time for a new monthly challenge at Sparkle N Sprinkle and we have a brand new Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges Blog ( 

Before I share the new challenge, I want to congratulate our August winner,

Katy Drogos.

Check back on the SNS blog for details on how to get your prize.

The October Challenge is based on a sketch.
For my card I decided to use another Michelle Perkett digital image, Cal the California Surfing Cow.  I printed this in black and colored with alcohol markers.  It is layered on a background using an embossing folder and a combination of the Faux Patina Technique and the EP Cosmos Technique, in the SNS Tips and Techniques, using the dry embossing, inking, and adding clear super thick EP.  You can find the details here.

You have until October 31 to enter to this challenge.  Now head on over to the new Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenges to find all the challenge details and requirements, along with more inspiration from my fellow designers, including many of our new designers that have just joined us!!

LOL! "totally kewl, dude..." LOL Marie, a fantastic way of creating a layer for the text greeting! Great idea! Your colors, as always, are remarkable. I also like the "foaming" waves and the wavy background. You've surprised me once again with your fabulous imagination.
