Pretty Pearls

It's challenge time at Meljen's Designs again.  The challenge this week is to use pearls on your project.

This image is Circus Clown.  Isn't he adorable?  He is a sneak peek of the new release coming in June!  I colored him using Primacolor pencils.  You can see his polka dots are pearls.

Color Challenge-Black-A Little or a Lot

It is challenge time at Meljen's Designs and we had some great new images this month.  The challenge is to use the color black.

I used the image Little Piano from the new release and paper pieced it.  I printed the sentiment and folded it a little to give it some dimension.  A few pearls and flowers and the card was complete!

Card measures 5.5" x 4.25"

Where in the World is Candace's Blog! Hop

By now you should have visited several blogs on your search for Candace's new blog, Creatively Candace.  You should have come here from Meredith's blog.  Unfortunately, you didn't find Candace just yet!  Keep hopping because you are on the right track!  If you didn't come from Meredith's blog and you would like to participate from the beginning, hop over to Ceal's blog and get started.

While I didn't make this card specifically for Candace, I thought it was the perfect card for this blog hop!

I used Safari Rhino and It's a Jungle word art.  Both can be found in the Meljen's Designs shop.  I colored the rhino using Prismacolor pencils.  The word art was paper pieced using the same animal prints I used on the background.  I hope the rhino has some good luck in locating Candace's new blog!

There are 6 images up for grabs simply for leaving comments on all of the blogs!  Three images have been donated from Meljen's Designs and 3 from Sweet 'n Sassy.  The winner will be chosen at random from one of the blogs on the hop!

Thanks for stopping by and helping us to find Candace.  The next blog on your hop is here.

Good luck in finding Candace!

Anything Goes!

The challenge this week at Meljen's Designs is Anything Goes!  Grab your favorite Meljen's Designs image and get crackin'!

I used one of the new images released for May called Fancy Flower Pen.  I colored it using Prismacolo pencils.  I used a metal rimmed tag for my sentiment and hung it from some tasty Pink Sorbet twine from The Twinery.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up! in the Mini Mates stamp set.
