So this fortnights sponsor is Flat Friends Boutique.  Here's a little bit about Emma and her shop:



"Hi, my name is Emma, I have a nice 9-5 which keeps me busy and I spend whatever spare time I have in the evenings designing digital stamps for Flat Friends. I got into drawing digi’s a couple of years ago and love seeing them out and about in the real world on cards. I had always coloured my digi’s digitally on Photoshop but recently purchased my first set of Copic’s as I felt as though I was cheating a bit :-D I’ve got a long way to go until I’ve mastered the art of colouring by hand but I am loving the learning process :-)"

The sketch to work from this fortnight looks something like this:

Winner and Top 3 for Sketch #75

Note from Christine: Back but need to get to my computer.  I don't know if you are having trouble loading some pictures - but they are appearing a bit odd on this computer.  So once I am up and running I will amend the issues and load up the Winners and Top 3 xx
 
Sorry about the issues this fortnight.  Normally I have an OK Internet signal at the holiday home I was at, but this time I couldn't load a thing at all!  Who knows what's happening down there!?  Thankfully back online now!!

Good morning Sketchers!

Winner from our last challenge will be on the blog tomorrow, Christine our fearless leader will be back and will put the Winner's name on the blog and the DT Top 3.

And now onto our current challenge which you can find here.

We are being sponsored by Faery Ink who will be offering one lucky winner 3 digis of their choice.

Here's a little information about Amanda and Faeryink:

"Hello all"  My name is Amanda Byron and I am the owner/artist/designer
behind www.Faeryink.com.  I have been a digital designer since 1998 but I 
only began creating digital stamps in January 2013.  Before that I made
graphics for websites and what is known as 'ixel art'.  I love all things
cute, colorful, fantasy and/or unusual which you can probably tell from
looking at my shop.  I live in South Carolina, USA, with 3 of my 4 children
(one has recently left the next "sigh"), my husband, and our 4 furbabies.  I
am really excited to be sponsoring this challenge and I look forward to 
seeing all of your beautiful creations!"

Hi I am Wendy Burns I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children who have been the inspiration behind the characters,  in particular my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with blogging and trends.  I work predominantly within the textile children’s wear market, fashion and interiors.
I trained as a textile designer and although my work is digital based, I love to retain that hand drawn /sewn feel which I hope comes across in my artwork.

Digital stamps is a new challenge for me and the opportunity to work with the All Dressed Up Team and has been very exciting, in particular the creative way my characters have been given individual personalities by the designers .

All Dressed Up is a newly launched blog with an enthusiastic team who are passionate about stamping.  The coordinators Marilyn and Tracy along with an amazing design team are also known as The Dressy Girls.

We have a friendly Facebook page, regular blog posts, tutorials, challenges and freebies .The stamps can be purchased from the Etsy shop which is updated on a monthly basis.


We really are friendly bunch and would love to see your creations so please feel free to contact us and visit the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.
