This is my contribution to the weekly sketch challenge hosted by Cindy Haffner (WHOOT! She's on the DD!) I made time to play this week since it seems like ages since I've gotten to stamp anything! I had never even inked her up...well not completely true, I had to test it out before it went into full production...but boy was she fun to color! I used Tombows and then some Faber Castell Albrecht Durer watercolor pencils on this, the pencils moved much nicer than the Tombow ink did (SU! Watercolor paper) so maybe next time I will try that alone. I don't think I've mastered (OK, let's be honest, I'm no where close to mastering) the watercolor thing, but I figure if I'm persistant enough I will get better! We spent a quiet New Year's Eve, well, sleeping amidst the fireworks in Savannah. We took my brother and sister-in-law to Savannah to celebrate their 33rd wedding anniversary! My diet of course started today along with 5 extra pounds courtesy of Paula Deen. Excellent. But SO worth it! I hope everyones 2008 is off to a roaring start and will find everyone healthy, happy and prosperous!
