Um Wow February Challenge

Do you love sketch challenges?  Do you love a chance to win AWESOME products?  Yes???  Well than you should head over to UmWow Studio for their February sketch challenge!!

I had A LOT of fun with this one because I used my BRAND new HOMEMADE gelli plate. (more on that in another post)

I used the brand new Authentique Classique Elegant collection for my base and then on my gelli plate I used black and white gesso.  I layered with the UWS checkerboard mask (modeling paste), a Bo Bunny doily and Tim Holtz tissue tape. 

DeeDee at UWS just recently did a demo on whitewashing chipboard and I did that on the UWS pinetree and snowflake confetti.
I also used a doily stamp from VLVS!, Prima flowers, Dylusions and tiny attacher.

OK so I was mostly happy with this layout but I will say that in the last couple of days I decided I didn't like the large flower so it has since been removed...not sure if I will leave the space or fill it with something else...we shall see.

You have until the end of the month to link up...let's see what you create!!


  1. Hi. Michele. This turned out great! I assume you are talking about the bottom flower under the picture. How about a pine cone of some sort-either stamped, cut out and popped up or with gesso, or modeling paste?

  2. Love this Michele! The colour combo is perfect! I would leave that space empty, but you could cluster that flower up with the other if you still wanted to use it (like you need my advice ;) ).

  3. OH Man!! What a cool photo anchor your whitewashed tree makes. Great job, M!!
