Sugar Pea Sketch Challenge {tweet friend}

I needed some color therapy. I have been busy with my watercolor class and it's a big brain drain some days.   I have to really think and work at it. It was nice to sit and work with an old familiar friend, my Copic markers. It really is therapeutic to sit and color. I've always loved coloring, it's no different as an adult. It's just more expensive! haha. 

I used this sweet image from Sugar Pea Stamps. it's the Tweet Friend stamp set, but I only inked up part of the image. Thanks to Jenny Peterson for reminding me the other day, that this is okay to do. I LOVED this card of hers. 

I am playing along with the current Sugar Pea Sketch Challenge over there. It was a great way to use a stitched frame I created with my Lil' Inker Designs dies. I just cut and re-cut with two, nesting stitched rectangles. 

here are the markers I used. 

I added in a die cut fishtail flag and a pretty buttony-flower handmade embellie to follow the sketch. 

Check out the challenge. You could win a Gift Certificate to their amazing store. 

And the products I used:

  1. LOVE the stitched frame and button flower you used for this sketch. I just used it for a card and it doesn't look nearly as nice as yours. Wonderful colouring too.
