Outlawz Sketch Challenge 9-9-15

Hi Everyone!
I'm going to be showing you our new Sketch for the Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge as well as my finished card using a Rick St. Dennis image, Bird of Paradise.

First, a word about our sponsor, Rick St. Dennis.
For the month of September, we are so pleased that our sponsor is Rick St. Dennis Digital Stamps. His images are so fun to color and create around. 
The prize for one lucky winner this month will be two single digis of choice (excluding sets) OR a 25% discount at Rick's Zibbet store. (digi SETS are excluded as prizes)   Thank you, Rick! That's a great prize!

Here is the sketch for this week!

And here is my card using Bird of Paradise by Rick St. Dennis Digital Stamps.

First of all, I couldn't wait to start working on this beautifully drawn image by Rick. I have a real fascination with all of his ladies and I loved, loved, loved this one!!

I colored with Copic markers. The wings are accented with Lime Stickles. I used my B99 Copic marker to dye my white flowers to the same shade of blue on the skirt. The skirt is accented with Wink of Stella brush. It came out too fast after I figured out how to use it and then it started drying quickly so I had to work fast and move it around. I don't know why I didn't test it on a piece of scrap paper. You think of these things later!!!!

I'd like to invite you to the Outlawz Sketch challenge to see what my teammates have made with their RSD images and this sketch. Even if you don't like to participate in Sketch challenges, I think it is really fun to see what others do with a sketch. So if you are at all curious to see what my teammates did with this sketch using various Rick St. Dennis images, please come join the challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
