SFYTT 092008

I decided to play along with Jen del Muro's Saturday Sketch For You to Try (SFYTT), but I had already decided that I wanted to use an image that I had colored. It turns out that it was too big for this Saturday's SFYTT, so I used this sketch from a week ago instead. I'll have to come up with another card for this week's sketch. I have to say that I am loving these sketches as they are motivating me to complete a card and they are also a lot of fun!

I'm also trying to improve my "coloring" skills. I stamped out a bunch of images and I take them with me so that I can practice whenever I have a spare moment. I used my Copics to color this background (with the exception of the chair, which is paper-pieced).

Cardstock: Bazzill (Kraft), PTI (white), CTMH; Patterned Paper: Basic Grey; Stamps: My Favorite Things; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Cuttlebug embossing folder; Markers: Copic; SU! word window punch; Dewdrops; Ribbon:; Other: thread.
