Shopping Our Stash Challenge #389 ~~ Make Your Mark!!!

Shopping Our Stash this fortnight is Make Your Mark ~~ Colour anything you want using  MARKERS!!! Chris is our hostess for this challenge and I think it's an easy peasy one with the exception of figuring what stamp or digi image you want to colour, at least that seemed to be my problem I had 4 stamps and a few already stamped ready to be coloured, finally my decision was made when I saw the sketch at Sketch Saturday (I did take a few liberties)


It's a Gruffie and boy is he hungry. I carried the honey colour theme with early expresso as an accent. The paper is from a Bo Bunny Fall themed paper stack that is at least 5 years old. Fall colours are really not my favourite to create with so it is used sparingly. The oval dies that I used are Nellie's Multi Frames (oval)


Finished the inside using a favourite stamp and adding the plaid strip that was left over from the front. 

I am entering this in:

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you are enjoying the two week challenges (I am) gives you more time to enter. Head over to the MAIN BLOG and check out the rest of the design team's projects.

Adorable!!! Well done on your coloring and using that sketch! Now that you mention it, I realize that you don't use fall colors often! This card is so cute, and the plaid is perfect with it... in spite of you not using those colors often, they look great with your colored image.
