we have a SKETCH CHALLENGE at Designed to Color!

yep, you're invited! the COLOR CREW (that's me and the girls!) at Designed to Color has a brand new challenge for you! Lizzie put together this FABTASTIC sketch for the June/July issue (which is out NOW! have you subscribed yet?!), and we are giving away a $15 shopping spree to the By Lori Designs shop! have you seen Lori Boyd's images? SUPER CUTE!

wanna play along? here's the sketch:

(told you it was fab!)

and here's what i did with this little beauty, with a slightly
minimalistic approach, which is kinda rare for me, dontcha think?

i used the little turtle/snail duo from the Hey Kaylee! clear stamp set from Some Odd Girl, colored 'em up all nice-nice with my Copics, repurposed a tag from a pair of Dockers, stamped a smidge with some bubble wrap, inked some edges and doctored my card up with some doo-dads from my stash and PRESTO! fun sketch interpretation that i hope will inspire you! :D

here are the little critters up close:

Copics used:

Turtle: YG01, YG23, YG25, N4, E02, I11, E33, E71, E74

Snail: N1, N4, 0, BG11, BG15
