A couple of challenge cards by Abby (4th post)

My daughter Abby is really enjoying making cards and entering them in challenges.  Here are a couple of her newest creations.
First, here is her entry for the first challenge on the Karen's Doodles Kids Challenge Blog.  Abby was so excited to hear that they were starting up a challenge blog for kids.  She quickly looked at the images and printed one to get started.  The first challenge is a recipe challenge.  They were to use 1 Karen's Doodle, 2 DP, 3 Buttons or Brads and something black.  The something black kind of threw her off a little, but she got it.

She colored the image with BIC Markits.  The DP is GCD Studios.  The flowers and brads came from my stash.

Next, we have Abby's entry for this weeks challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio.  This was also a recipe challenge; use 3 DP, 3 flowers, 3 buttons or brads and make it springy.  I think she rocked it.

The image is Lily from Michelle Perkett.  I just love this image.  She colored it with colored pencils (asst. brands and types).  The DP, flowers and brads are from my stash.  She had fun raiding mom's stuff.

Thanks for looking, be on the look out for more from Abby, she's really enjoying this.

Abby, these are wonderful! Keep up the good are such a budding artist!

If you want to help blend your colors when you use the colored pencils, see if your mom can get you some blending stumps. Then you dip the stumps in baby oil & go over top of what you had colored with your pencils in a circular motion (use a different stump for the different color families). You can even add some extra colors after you blend. Good luck with your challenges!
