Today, Sketch Saturday is celebrating 6 years! Jo Edwards posted the very first sketch Challenge on 31 May 31 2008.To help celebrate 6 years of sketches, we are having a Blog Hop with Little Miss Jo, and the Sketch Saturday Design Team! There are prizes hidden along the Blog Hop, so leave a comment at each stop on the Hop to maximize your chances of winning! 

For the challenge you can use any past sketch between #211 and 315; so for my project I've used Sketch #222 as the bases for my creation.  Check it out...

Here are the stamps that I've used on this card, all from Little Miss Muffet Stamps:

I hope everyone had fun with the challenge this month to try out some creative color placement!  I've seen some brilliant ideas implemented and have really enjoyed the challenge.  :D  Coming in towards the end of the month, I have another one to add to the collection.  This is Aleisha from Make it Crafty colored with Prismacolor Pencils. 

And for the transformation to take full effect on your eyes, here's the original image as found in the Make it Crafty store HERE.  I added ears and extended the bows.  Then the nose, face and whiskers were colored as a fox, of course.  The rest of the image is as-is.

The background was colored with various greens to make it look like a blurry leafy background.  Did it work?  Not sure but I still like how it turned out.  :D  I doodled around the outside then placed her on a simple card.  Here's the final card...

Lastly are is a picture of the hair details.  I tried to work on the highlights and shadows in the hair strands - and getting that using different colors instead of light and dark.  I have about 7 colors from black to yellow.
