Sketch and Color me in!




Sketch and colors... oooh, oh my, nice and simple, sweet and fun. As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew I had to try it. This should be so much fun! Scoot on over to The Daily Marker to see the challenge. I really did have such fun with a Hero Arts Art of Style Digital Design Kit and a sentiment from a Hero Arts clear set Friends, # CL351. I had printed this particular print wider than normal and had it lying in my printed stash, just waiting its turn. I didn't have the exact Copic colors listed for the challenge, but I thought I could improvise and so I chose Powder Blue, B41, Buttercup Yellow, Y21, Chines Orange, YR09, and Dim Green, G40 as alternative colors. I hope you like it. Lighter and darker areas are still the same color, just not as saturated.
