Creative Knockouts #93 - Use Your Stash

Art By Miran is sponsoring our "Use Your Stash" challenge at Creative Knockouts.  You've gotta love the idea of this challenge - who doesn't want to use rather than just collect a stash?!?  The "Hello" tag, it's backing piece, the flower and the button were all on my desk - ready to use!  The papers that back the image panel and the back bubble paper were from my scrap drawers - yahoo! I'm always excited when I use things that have been on my desk - patient discards from other card ideas, or pieces out of my scrap drawers.  It's like a little personal victory!

This cutie is Art By Miran's Blowing Bubbles.  I loved her big eye.  She was a little more challenging to color than I thought she was going to be.  The straight side- profile tested me with shading; the bubbles were tricky, too!  And then, there were her lips!  The bubbles actually have several very light colors including V0000, BG0000, BG70 and then a little spot of Stickles to catch the light.

  Can you keep a secret?  I just realized I forgot to shade the background!  Oops!   Here's what the Creative Knockout DT has created for inspiration.   Collect some of your stash and play along with us this week!
