Banana Split Sunday - Sketch

Good Morning! Today is another episode of 2RedBananas - Banana Split Sunday :)

Today's challenge is a sketch challenge. I love challenges because they really get me doing things I might not have done before. With sketch challenges, I have a base to start with and then can elaborate from there, so much fun!! Here is the sketch we are working with for this week's challenge.

And here is the card I made with it. I used the "Party Bees" set, I just LOVE this little turtle's shell, it's so much fun to color!

The background I made a while ago for a challenge on SCS - it's called Embossed Wax Paper Resist.
It's a fun technique, Lynn (the hostess for the technique challenge on SCS) always comes up with really cool technique challenges, so if you haven't been over there to try them, give it a shot!

Okay, back to this challenge :)

When I was making this card, I was thinking about what I use to color and what my favorite coloring medium is. I don't think I have a favorite, for this one I used Copics, but I use prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits probably more often. I think each one has it's place, at least for me. Oh well, I just like to color!

Stamps: Party Bees - 2RedBananas(being released tomorrow), sentiment - Hero Arts

So cool! I love that background! It looks so great with the turtle shell! I have gotta try that technique! (Patrick won't know what to think if I get out the iron!)

Too cute, Jeanette! I love how you colored in the turtle, especially the blue areas to go with the paper. It's so cute!
