Friends-Sketch Saturday #46

I made this card for Sketch Saturday #46. 

It's an awesome sketch but I did have problems with the four little squares on the top right hand corner....;o)
Everything is Close To MY Heart except for the image-it's Whipper Snapper. 
I colored in the image with my copics and I used some new paper; which Kim from Kimmie's Kraftin' Korner recommended. 

The new paper is from Canson and it's Manga Drawing Paper. I did find that it bleed a tad bit...but that may have been because I didn't let my memento ink dry long enough before I started coloring....I WA REALLY excited! What can I say???
But besides that.....it really does work awesome for blending! Kim was right....you don't get those harsh lines that you do with other cardstock...the colors just literally blend together....and because the paper is a whoppin' 150 lbs.......the ink takes longer to dry; so you have more time to mess with shading. 
The paper is WAY more expensive that the wausau cardstock from walmart...but I got it at Michael's craft store and was able to use my 40% off coupon...it was about $10.00 but it only has 20 sheets. 

Anyways, my kids are off school this week for Spring break so we have tons of excursions planned; including shopping, a movie and the Zoo (hopefully the weather will improve!)....but I am hoping to get lots of stampin' in.....I got one of Lauren Meader's Timeless Templates...so I plan to try it out this week!  

Have a great Monday!
