Yummy Strawberries!

Welcome to another Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Isn't this a fantastic sketch by Arlana, our fearless leader?! I have so much fun with this group, I can't even begin to tell you. Join us and you can have some fun too!
The fun comes from the fabulous prize that our most wonderful sponsor, Digi Doodle Shop, is offering...a $10 gift certificate!!!! And the whole store is up to 50% off the entire month of July, so what are you waiting for, head on over and fill up your cart!!!




Who doesn't love fresh strawberries that this time of year brings. I could almost taste them when I saw this image. I printed this digi onto watercolor paper then used my Tombow markers and blender pen. This is now one of my top favorite ways of coloring! I even added a little Crystal Effects onto the strawberries to give them a little extra shine. This fun strawberry DSP was found in my stash - I really should inventory my stash to know what I have in there!!! Colors include Melon mambo, Regal rose (I love this combo!), Garden green and White. I used this gold ribbon to bring out the little bit of yellow I added to the strawberry blossoms. Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure and stop by the rest of the teams' blogs because they will blow you away with their talent and creations. Stay cool!

Linda, your card is so pretty! I love the image and the soft colors you used for it. It really turned out perfect! The yellow ribbon adds a really nice contrast to the pinks.

Linda, I just love your card as I adore Strawberries. I even have a Strawberry on my charm bracelet one of my favourite fruits in the summer. I liked this image as well but I'm glad that you used it as you had that wonderful paper to go with it. I have one digi paper with strawberries on but not the colours I would use. It's a really pretty card.

Wow Linda this is stunning, i've a crafty friend who swears by Tombow's and is trying hard to get me to get them, i'm a big promarker fan and would like copics so who knows maybe three sets of markers are required. ;-D
