Get Sketchy Challenge

Made for the Get Sketchy challenge #36.  I followed it pretty closely.  I started by looking for a small stamped image for the main focus.  (I believe it's from Stampin Up.)  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils, and then matched my printed papers and cardstocks to the colors.  Many of the embellishments are gifts from friends.  The focal image is even one that I stamped off from a borrowed stamp.

  7. Such a pretty card Lin - and yes it's a retired Stampin Up - I only know that because I bought that set off of e-bay a couple of years ago. Love the way you colored it. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Dru
