Queen for the Day* SFYTT*

I was in the mood for a vintage design today and this week's "Sketch for you to try" was the perfect fit. I had to make one minor adjustment on my card which varies from the sketch because of technical issues, but all in all, it is close! LOL! I hope you are all able to take time to try out Jen's sketches. She always does such a great job!





I absolutely love using my rubber stamps from TJ Designs for many of my vintage creations. I haven't used this white rabbit image from the Alice in Wonderland stamp set for a while and he was just the perfect size for this week's sketch. I colored him using copic and prismacolor makers. There really isn't much coloring since, after all, he is a white rabbit. I did use some different neutrals to give it some shadow and of course red for the hearts and pink for the bow.


I fear that every time I see a circle on a sketch challenge, I immediatly want to make an accordion flower. I tried to resist today, but couldn't! LOL! I also wanted to give everything a dusting of glitter, but limited myself to just the outside. I had so much fun with this sketch.
I really am getting my energy back. You should have seen me in action yesterday. I did more in one day than I think I have done in the last month! LOL! I even tried two new recipes for dinner! Yay for me!

This is oh so chic boutique, if you know what I mean!! I really love it! And I'm thrilled that you use a combo of Prismacolor & Copics to color!! I know it shouldn't be much, but as a gal who has not jumped on the Copic wagon (not because I don't want a few...or more....but, there are so many fabulous images and products out there and a finite budget, that I have to use what I've got and spread the love around...ya know?! :>) yet, its nice to see love shared with other coloring brands and/or mediums! :> Fabulous creation you've offered today! :>
