Souls Blossoming...

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures. -Henry Ward Beecher

The Elzybells Design Team and our wonderful leader, Elizabeth, have decided to do some Bi-weekly (or that a word?) Challenges! We are starting today with a Sketch Challenge and will post a new Sketch or Challenge ever other Thurs. You can find ALL of the Design Team cards on the Elzybells Blog as well as the sketch for the next Challenge!! Check it out and play along!!!

This was the sketch we all used this week...

Paper: Print Stack (SU,) DCWV Textured CS, Stampers Select White (Papertrey)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Lipstick Red Cat's Eye Chalk
