Blooming Great Day

Hi everyone-Monday is over!  Today I am doing a challenge I’ve seen for a while but I have never participated in…the Deconstructed Sketch.   Below is this weeks sketch DS62.

I need something to help get those creative juices flowing again and I love these sketches, so it was time to tackle one.

I began by using a new image from Lili of the Valley called Blooming Lovely.    These new bears are so cute!  I have quite a few so I need to start getting them inky.

I stamped the image on Flourishes Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics.   I tried my hand at some shading using dots instead of solid color like my friend Broni.  She does the most outstanding Copic coloring!   It needs some work, but it’s fun!  I added a bit of texture to the bears fur using a paper towel and some Blender solution too.  I finished with a Quickie Glue Pen and ultra fine glitter. 

All of the paper is from the Victoria Gardens pad by Echo Park.  A few buttons, some twine, and a hand cut banner, and voila!

Find the Deconstructed Sketch here and play along!  Have a great day!
