Challenge #32 – Sunsets with Clouds

MakeitColourful August 27, 2011 5


Hi Everyone,

We’re back with another Saturday challenge!! Wow – the entries for last weeks challenge ‘Ground your Subject’ have been mind blowing – the team are all having trouble voting!!

But make sure you are back Tuesday to see if you are a winner or in our top Three and honours section!!

This week we are excited to have Tiddly Inks back sponsoring us!

You could win THREE digi stamps!

Tiddly Inks offers digital stamps and digital papers, created by Christy Croll. Christy is a self-trained illustrator who likes simple, cute and quirky drawings with a sense of humor.  She draws what amuses her, which means some days it is quirky and cute and other days it is a bit of twisted gothic feel.

From Christy
Personally, I hate doing dishes and folding laundry, so my house is often a mess … but I try every once in a while to clean it as quickly as I can – don’t look behind the pile in the closet.  :grin: I have one daughter who makes me smile, inspires me, and for so many reasons, she is my everything.  Most of my illustrations revolve around something she did or said, but the rest of the time, they are inspired by other people’s kids and animals…maybe yours.

My life is too short not to be doing something I love
and that is what art is for me:
It makes me smile; it makes me laugh and without a doubt it is something I love.
And if my art makes you smile, then I have just doubled the fun.


The Challenge!!

    Wow….. what beautiful entries. I am sorry I never got mine finished because I was so unwell but looking at these I think leaving it out was the best option!! I am determined to finish it though as I feel it really is a beautiful effect that I for one have never used before. I love the challenges we get set here because you really make us think and work hard…… and there is no point in a challenge otherwise! Keep up the great work xxx
