Midnight Madness DT- MMSC100

This week is a special week at Midnight Madness, as we hit our 100th sketch challenge!!! our sketch this week is so much fun!

The DT was able to use Sugar Creek Hollow images, who is our weekly sponsor.

**Our April Monthly sponsor is....

I was so excited to use this awesome balloon image from Sugar Creek Hollow, and I knew exactly what papers I was going to choose, Webster's Pages.
I thought the balloon looked a little like a vintage air balloon, so I wanted to showcase that by using the vintage Webster's Pages papers. I love the way it came out!
I colored the balloon with copics:
R29, R27, R24, R22, Y28, Y26, Y24, Y21, BG75, BG72, BG70, E57, E35, E31, E50, B0000
I added a red ruffle ribbon and some cream silk bows to the edge of the image. I also used some of my Wild Orchid Crafts roses which I glimmer misted with Scarlet, and used my BG72 and my Copic Airbrush to spray the smaller roses to match. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Adage Ticket, which I distressed and used Vintage Photo Distress ink. The butterfly I punched out with my Martha Stewart Monarch punch and some of the design paper.
I hope you will join us this week at Midnight Madness for our challenge this week. I cant wait to see how you interpret our 100th sketch!!
