It's A Beautiful Day!

for the Club Anime Sketch Challenge! Like the sketch?

I decided to use Kei for this sketch card she'll be available next week in the Club Anime. As of my post 4-inches of snow from a couple of days ago has just been washed away by ice-rain and a thunderstorm. Just wanting a little warmth and sunshine right now, so Kei is going to get me there in my dreams.

I colored her with Prismacolor markers, as you would have expected, and went to find some paper to compliment the colors. I couldn't find what I wanted so I got out some Crushed Curry ink and a sponge and made some. The patterned paper is from Making Memories Black and White pack. (I used my Prismacolor markers to color the flowers, too.)

I hope you can join us over at "Too Cute for Words" with this sketch. You have a whole month to work on it and then mention it over on the post. That's it.

Well now, I feel like I've had some sunshine! I hope you all have a beautiful day. Thanks for stopping by.
