Getting Sketchy

OMG I can't believe that I haven't blogged in a month. I feel so ashamed. I  have been creating still for Meljen's Designs as  well as running Card Makin Mamas but apparently I have neglected to share any of my work with you fine folks. Well that will change NOW, because I have a super fun new card to share with you today.

I have had this amazing image for a while now, it was a freebie called Boobielove from Saturated Canary. I have actually had her colored up for a while now but never knew what to do with her. Well thankfully my dear friend Carisa was my secret swap sister recently and she sent me this awesome Amy Tangerine stuff that got me so inspired. I have also been dying to use this design paper from Fancy Pants Designs. When Carisa's magazine Designed to Color posted their new sketch challenge I noticed that it would all work together perfectly. All the stickers are from Amy Tangerine and then I added some pink Washi tape that I also got in my swap package. Now I will admit that I don't have a vast selection of Copics to use when coloring an image so I blend them with my Bic markers and that  is what I did  here with  this image. I am so pleased with the way it turned out too.

I bought them at my local department/grocery store. They are kinda like Sharpies. I prefer Copics but I can't afford them
