Kellie's Sketch Challenge #3

Yay, I managed to do another challenge. This one is Kellie's Sketch Challenge #3, love these. I have used a digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil, she has so many cute stamps, but I am still working out how to colour digital stamps. I usually watercolour but my printer ink seems to be water soluble and just runs everywhere. What a conundrum - so I pulled out the Stampin Up chalks, the effect is a lot softer (and I did use vanilla cardstock, so it probably doesn't stand out as much as it would have on white cardstock - oh well).

PS: I had to remove my visitor counter as it seemed to go a bit haywire. Just a week ago I was getting very excited as I was getting close to 1,000 (I was even thinking of doing some blog candy), then the next day I checked, it was 19,000+ WHAT THE?
: )


  1. Adorable job Alison - love the soft tonings. But if you're interested I found a great tutorial for watercolouring digis - haven't tried it out yet though! Will email you the link - doesn't want to copy here!!

  2. Wow, that was a banner evening, jumping up 18,000 hits, wow!! I have seen a few others having trouble with their counters as of late. Great take on the sketch, I have the same oppostiion to digis, I can't colour them as I'd like to, don't have Copics, so colour pencils have to do and compared to watercolouring or distress inks, well, it doesn't compare at all!! Your digi looks beary nice!! Thanks for playing along with us, hope to see you back next time!!

  3. Gorgeous card Alison. I have been wondering the same thing about colouring digi stamps. Will have to get that link Deb wrote about. That's one cute bear!

  4. That is a really cute card. I love what you have done with the sketch.
