This is my first challenge on the DT for Incy Wincy Designs – I was the Guest Designer last month. The challenge for this week is ‘Patriotism’ Use colors or items from your country. I am in the Good ol’ US of A so I went with Red, White and Blue. It is our nation’s birthday this week too! 🙂 Happy Birthday America! The sponsor for this week’s challenge is Saturated Canary digis. I love the eyes on her images! So big and bright! I got two images, paid for one and was given one to use for the challenge. I decided to use the one I paid for. This image is called Multitasking Mama. Fitting huh? I always had a baby carrier on my front when I needed to hold my baby and do chores (ha! me doing chores, who am I kidding?)…but I have always been a multitasking mama! I wanted to make this a thank you card but wasn’t sure how to go about it. I decided to create a ‘To Do List’ and add on at the end of my list “Thank my friend for helping with the kids”. I tried to find a check list but couldn’t find one I liked, so I made my own. I will share it with you on the bottom of this post. I used my chalks to color the image with the exception of the baby (I used ink), I used a Copic E00 to do the skin tone. I don’t do the shading with the pens yet…I only own three copic markers. LOL I made a red, white and blue stick pin, used red, white and blue roses and ribbon and this is what I came up with.
and as promised – here is my check list. To save it simply left click to make it larger, then right click and select save as.
