Hello! Can you believe we are up to the FIFTH StampInsanity Challenge? Where does the time go??? This is a sketch challenge, and I’ve gotta say, I must have used my sketch mojo for yesterday’s post, because I had a heck of a time with this one! Take a look at the sketch:Pretty straight forward right? I guess because I was Hell-bent on using a Roder image I had colored in weeks ago, I had a tough time. I don’t know… check out my card and tell me what you think! First, I gotta say, I am SO lovin’ Roder! He is just too friggin’ cool! Check out that awesome hair! I can only hope that Nix can rock out his hair one day like this! A close up of the handsome fellow. He’s colored with colored pencils, of course! I honestly love how he came out. The colors worked out exactly as I saw them in my head. Just check out his hair!!! I think I used 5 colors in his hair alone! Remember, you can click on any of my photos to see them bigger! I thought this paper worked out perfect too… it was just that I had so much space left! I probably should have switched the card to a rectangle. It would have thrown the sketch off a bit, but I don’t think Beth would have slapped my wrists for it! It took me forever to find something to throw in the corner. I didn’t want to put “friends” or “buds” or “Happy Birthday.” I just wanted it to be cool. And hey! I found “cool!” It’s a clear sticker from DCWV. And actually, the color was way too bright for the card. So I mounted it on a beige cardstock so that it dulled the brightness down quite a few notches. Then I added some Vintage Ink Distress Stickles for a wee bit more dimension. Over all, I am pretty happy with it. I struggled, yeah, but I did get it done! And I think it’s pretty “cool!” Now please go and take a peek at the rest of the Groovy Gurlz awesome cards! But show me some love first puh-leaze! Have an inspiring day!!!Jennifer Jeri LisaMargie Sarabeth Suzi Tonya

Your card is AWESOME! I love that hair and the dimension of the pencils. You just can't get that with markers.
