Sketch-Just Us Girls #213

Hello!  Thanks for coming by my little blog!  The Just Us Girls (JUGS) challenge this week (the first Saturday in November!!) is a sketch challenge! This means I've been on the team a whole month!  Now you know we would love to have you join us in our weekly challenge so here's the link to the BLOG

 You know I've said I love our challenge because you can use ANY stamps you want!!  This week I've used some 'Oldies but Goodies from Stampin' Up!  The apple bucket is from Give Thanks (2006).  My backgrounds are Paisley (also retired SU) and Flannel (SU too).  I stamped Chocolate chip cardstock in Early Espresso and Kiwi Kiss cardstock with Kiwi Kiss.
I'm super excited to say I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Versamark Black and then colored it with my new Tim Holtz Distress Markers!!  I'd put off buying them long enough, so made my purchase from Amazon about 3 weeks ago. I loved coloring with them and then adding water from his brush for the watercolored look.  I hadn't watercolored in a long time and this was so easy!  Now I'll be torn between my copics and distress markers!
At first the sketch intimidated me, but once I decided on colors and image it was fun, fun, FUN!!
Remember you have until Thursday, Nov. 7 at 9 pm Eastern time to enter your creation!!
You DO have Thanksgiving cards, Christmas cards and maybe a birthday card or two to make this month, right?  Try our sketch!!
Have a great day!! Cheryl

Well first, what a fun design sketch and second I love the card you created using that sketch. You colored that apple bucket beautifully. Love your color palette and papers too and thank you for inspiring me to stamp on my watercolor paper with VersaMark, great idea.
