Sweet Sketch #12

This week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge has an additional twist - a color challenge!

Here's my take on this double challenge!


I'm the first to admit these colors were a little outside my norm. However, I knew that somewhere in my Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper stack, I would find papers with the right colors! :) The yellow paper has a butterfly print, so this butterfly image from The Angel Company (TAC) seemed like the perfect fit. The "Thank You" stamp is also from TAC. The main image is colored in with Prismacolor watercolor pencils and a Dove blender pen. The buttons are from a Paper Studio bag of buttons and the Lime Scrapper's Floss is from TAC.
