My Rockin' Big News

I'm on the Get Sketchy Design Team!!
I love this challenge blog because every week they have the greatest sketches to get you motivated to create. And I just can't believe I'm a part of it all now. So stinkin' cool!
Here's this week's sketch:

And the sponsor this week is The Greeting Farm, so I got to use this adorable senorita to make my card.

It was my first time working with a digital image and it was soooo easy!!! I just opened the image in Word, resized it from the corner so it wouldn't stretch, and printed it on cardstock. Crazy easy.
I colored her with Prisma Color pencils using a technique that my BFF, Jennifer McGuire, taught me. Clearly, I need more practice. I don't really know how to shade.... I get the whole "pretend there's a light shining on the image," but unless I actually see that light, I don't know exactly which areas should be lighter or darker.

Now, head on over to Get Sketchy and create something wonderful!! And don't forget to enter my birthday giveaway here. You have until Monday!
