Spring, Bumble Bees, and Flowers

Wednesday Sketch

The calendar tells me it is spring and we have robins back from their winter getaway, but when I look outside, I see a cold and frosty landscape.

I know spring will arrive eventually and possibly will go straight to hot and humid weather, but for now, I will enjoy spring by making springlike cards such as this one I made for the Outlawz Sketch Challenge. 

My image is Bumble Bee Blossom and is from our sponsor, Sheepski Designs.I colored with Copic markers and added a few Prismacolor pencils here and there. The stamens are highlighted with a Sharpie White Poster Paint pen, my new best friend!  My papers, pearls, and ribbon are from my stash. Some Wink of Stella on the bee's wings and I was done!
My card is 6 x 6 inches and I've already given it away as a birthday card to my friend whose birthday was the 16th.

Here is the Sketch for this week. The Sketch Challenge starts every Wednesday for a week.

As I mentioned, Sheepski Designs is our sponsor this month and I just love Andrea's images.  Our March winner for the Outlawz Sketch Challenge will get to choose 3 images from the shop.
