Another Day, Another Sketch

I found a great sketch and a fabulous color combination yesterday, and this is the first chance I've had to work on either of them. The sketch is from i{heart}2stamp and the color combo is from Splitcoast Stampers.

I'm learning how to translate a sketch to where it doesn't totally intimidate me, and how to use the stamps I already own. I honestly can't afford to buy everything I want, and I absolutely don't have the room to store them all, lol!


I have taught myself to find the main stamp I want to use and go from there...is that right? So, I picked a new stamp set I just got from Inkadinkado and went from there.


I also used my blender pen, and I kept true to the color palette. I'm much more used to a paint brush, and as I've said before, I'm learning. It's a little harder than I expected but I hope that I'll get used to the pens. I liked how it came out!




What do ya'll think?? I admit I didn't like the wings of my fairy, but add a little stickles and I loved them! Stickles fixes everything!!!
