Tiddly Inks Sketch Challenge

Just in the nick of time..... I made this card for this weeks Tiddly Inks Challenge which was a sketch. Now I LOVE sketches and use them almost ALL the time but gosh, this one gave me grief! I don't know what it was, but I had serious creative block on it! hehe I think b/c I wanted to put something in those little squares but just couldn't find the right thing...ah well. I love the flourish though I think that's stretching it a little bit. I do adore this little versa bugg available now at Tiddly Inks & had a blast coloring her! I am also loving these handmade rolled flowers. The sentiment is from ippity's books a flutter set.

I was completely inspired by Zoe's coloring of this beautiful Fairy Tilda to try the dots technique around my image. Not sure mine came out as super cool as Zoe's tho! I also thought I'd submit it to Copic Creations as their challenge this week is Shading ON or AROUND your image. I will have to check to see if I can enter twice b/c I really want to try this technique again. I think it could be super cool but I just need practice!! I'm terrible about putting ALL my colored images on cards whether I'm entirely happy with them or not. I just don't get ALL that much time doing what I love so I try to make the best of everything I set out to start! :)

Gorgeous Carissa! I think the flourish is just fine, and I love how your dotty background mimics the swirl. Thanks for joining the Tiddly Inkers this week. xxD
