Critter Challenge - Sketch Challenge

It's time for another Critter Sketch Challenge - and this week I'm the sketch hostess!  It's normally not my week to play, but having missed last week, and being the Sketch Hostess, I thought I join in!  This month's sponsor at the Critter Blog is LimeLight Paper Crafts.

I used images from the Artistic Outpost Cutie Pie plate to create my card, stamping the image in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then coloring using the Marker Watercoloring Technique.  The Background was created using the Glimmer Lace Technique from the current Technique Junkie Newsletter.


Here's this weeks sketch

Looking for more inspiration using this weeks sketch,  head over to the Critter Blog to see what the other Designers created this week, and find out how you can play along.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost
Ink - Black Archival, Red, Staedtler Markers
Card Stock - Black, Red, Watercolor
Other - H20 Brush, Sponge Dauber, Basic Grey Paper, Dimensionals, Glimmer Mist, Lace
