I read something on Facebook that got my attention fast and quick! Fresh Brewed Designs announced they were having a SURPRISE CHALLENGE! The announcement baffled me. What could they mean by a surprise challenge? They encouraged customers to grab a freebie off their store for this surprise challenge but there was a limited time to do so. So I jumped on over to their store and grabbed this cute freebie called Coffee Shop. It's not free anymore. The thing is... they had TWO freebies.I thought I had to pick ONE. So I did. Today as I am reading the other entries, I discover I could have picked both! Imagine my disappointment because they are both way cute! The challenge calls for following a sketch and here is the sketch:
I think this is a cute sketch and here's my take on it:
I went a little crazy with the colors! lol I do like how it came out and truth be told, I had to tone down the picture! IRL it's not as bright but the picture was screaming HOT PINK! Sorry, didn't mean to scream at you but that's what the picture was doing! ;) All supplies used are from my stash and I colored the image with Copic markers. It cannot be seen but I colored in the doorknob with JOT Metallic Ink Permanent Marker in Gold. (Couldn't find a working link for you! :( ) I dabbed the center of the flowers with Stickles Liquid Pearls in Buttercup and added some Liquid Applique in Yellow to the cupcakes. I finished by sprinkling some Snow Crystal Glitter on the Liquid Applique before it dried. I punched out two corner punches to add to the corners of the long green and white striped paper with Fiskars Lace 3-in-One Corner Punch. I dotted the green shades with an American Crafts Galaxy Marker in White. I then used a Marvy Uchida Le Pen in Brown to hand write some "shop talk" on the blinds in the windows of the image. I thought it came out wicked cute!
Hope you've enjoyed reading all about this as much as I enjoyed writing it! :) Thanks for stopping by!
