Shelly's Images Terrifically Thrilling Thursday: Hen and Sketch Challenge

Good morning all! Welcome to another week at Shelly's Images! We are changing things up a bit. Shelly has decided to switch our posting schedule to Thursdays so we can all share the weekly challenge with you. We used to do a featured image on Mondays and a challenge on Thursdays. Now the featured image will be combined with the challenge. For the month of August, things will be a little clumsy as we get our calendar straightened out. After August, our images will go along with the challenge.

This week I have two projects to share. both of the images you see today are offered at a $1.00 discount in the Shelly's Images Store today only. My first one here is our featured image this week called Hen. I did a simple tag. The background is kraft embossed and then sponged with chalk ink. I have also inlcuded hemp string and a strip of burlap.

Stamps: Shelly's Images Hen
Paper: Kraft Cardstock
ProMarkers: Henna, Terracotta, Cinnamon, Ice Grey 1, 2, Ruby Red, Burgundy, Mustard Yellow, Tan
Accessories: Burlap, Hemp String, Embossing Folder

My second project goes along with our sketch challenge this week. I really love the simplicity of this sketch and I can't wait to see what you all come up with! The image I used is called Close to My Heart and I'm sure all you horse lovers out there can relate. :)

Stamps: Shelly's Images Close to My Heart
Paper: Basic Grey Marjolaine
ProMarkers: Henna, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Ivory, Blush
Accessories: Basic Grey Marjolaine brads, Hand-stitching
