Clearly Inspired Challenge - It's a Sketch

It's the first Friday in February, so it's time for the Clearly Inspired Challenge at Clear Dollar Stamps...and it's a sketch!!! I love sketches, and you will love this one too!!!
And here's my card, using the set Critter Tales. I've been wanting to use this DSP, Little Yellow Bicycle's Cupcake Love for some time now, and the flamingo with this sentiment was perfect!! I embossed the image onto CDS water color paper then used my Tombow markers and blender pen, a technique I really enjoy. Unfortunately all of the colors look a little washed out, they really are much brighter. And there's lots of sparklies on the paper too. Fun challenge for some fun prizes, check out all the details HERE. Remember, you must use a CDS stamp. And if you don't have one, we've got you covered with a pretty magnificent FREEBIE, so no excuses. This snow and cold weather should keep you inside to stamp! Now let's cheer on those Steelers on the road to #7!!!!
