I'm very late with my SFYTT sample today -- so sorry! I had a blast this past week with both Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary release and Stamper's Dream's JustRite Week, but I confess my creative well needed some downtime to replenish itself before I tackled today's SFYTT.
I'm tickled to death that today's sketch is being sponsored by The Greeting Farm. I've followed this company since it began, and am so happy for its success! One lucky sketch participant this week will win an in-stock 4"x6" TGF stamp set of her/his choice!! Wish I were eligible, teehehe!
This is my first time using one of the adorable Anya images. I chose to work with the new Cupcake Anya digi. I colored with Prismacolor pencils, except for the skin tones, which I colored with Copics, a tip I picked up from my coloring idol Paula Williamson. Speaking of coloring idols, Paula and my other coloring idol, Linda Heavens, are teaming up for a weekend of classes at Stamping Bella in late September, and I soooooo want to ask for that for my birthday! Would a single one of my IRL friends understand hopping on a plane from Virginia to Toronto so I can learn to color? My husband doesn't understand either, but he smiles and nods really well!
Here's the sketch (I turned it on its side):
Have a peek at lots more TGF cards from the SFYTT gals today:
