Be Like a Flower

Hi Friends! Just a quick post for a tiny project today...a bookmark.

You might recognize the cute image on this's the same one that I used in my last post, here. It's perfect for my bookworm DD, as she and our dog are best friends. :) And, I really want to improve my coloring on these type of images, so I've colored this one several times. I finally got one that is pretty good, although I need some serious practice time on hair. :)

I colored the image with Copic markers and used a new cloud mask and Memento ink that I picked up at the Greenville convention to make the clouds. The sentiment was heat embossed with white ep.

And, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to check back on Tuesday for the newest Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge. I'll have a fun project to share with you, made with some of the new goodies I snagged at the convention!!!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Stamps: Olivia (Guylou's Inimitability Digistamps); Summer Afternoon (Taylored Expressions)
Paper: Garden Party Digital Paper (Design House Digital); kraft cs
