Taylored Expressions 100th Sketch!

I came across a post about the Taylored Expressions' 100th Sketch Celebration (TESC100) and then saw the sketch layout and immediately knew Coco Bear was going to be it's feature on my take of the sketch.

I started with pink and brown color cardstock and then on a whim added a blue background to Coco and I almost thought I'd ruined it! LOL But I pulled it together and Coco is still the cuter for it. Coco is from DigiStamp Boutique and I have so wanted to color him up and get him on a card. You should really check out the digital images over there. Look at all of them if you dare, but go see Coco first of course.

Tip: After masking off Coco and the ground area of the image, I used my darker blue marker to color the SU! background stamp and immediately pressing it on the colored background. It gives a subtle pattern to the image and also hides any marker striping that might occur from overlapping while coloring.

Stamps: DigiStamp Boutique Coco with heart, Verve Love Monkey (sentiment), SU! Backgrounds (retired)
Paper: Brocade Blue, Close to Cocoa, Fresh Paint Textured Pink, LSS pink
Ink: Laserjet, Close to Cocoa, Prismacolor Markers*
Accessories: Nestabilities Standard Circle and Bloom, SU! Tag punch, Trio flower punch, and another (retired?) three flower punch, SU! Scallop Trim edge punch, Martha Stewart Iridescent Cotton Candy and Bubblegum glitter, Glossy Accents, Sissix Birthday A6 EF Tween Flowers Texturz Plate, Michael's striped ribbon. Whew!

Prismacolor Details: Coco: Fur - Mocha Light, Mocha Dark, Sepia; Heart - Blush Pink, Carmine Red: Background - Cloud Blue, Blue Slate; Ground - Parchment and a heavy soak of Colorless Blender


  1. Seriously cute, I love the cute image and the colours are so rich, vibrant and lovely!

  2. Super cute card Janelle. Love the image, the great colors... fab job on the sketch!
