Sketch Challenge from Some Odd Girl

Reading Sketch Challenge

Today when they posted the sketch challenge over at Some Odd Girl I knew exactly what I was going to do! Yesterday I bought my first digi images from them and printed them out. I don't have a huge selection of Copics yet so shading colors is a bit difficult. So I pulled out my old colored pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I had forgotten how much I love images colored that way. You see, I can't stand to see color lines on anything I do and the mineral spirits just smooth that away.

I love this card more than anything I've made in a while! I also love the digi images! I could make them any size I wanted! I find that most of the images are the same size when I purchase stamps and I find that I use the same layout over and over. So this allowed me to play around a little! I did notice just a tiny bit of running of the black line but it was so tiny that it didn't make a big difference, just helped to add some shading. I'm anxious to use the printed images with my Copics and see what happens. I printed them out yesterday so when I use them the ink should be set in and I shouldn't have trouble with it running at all!
