Truly Scrumptious Challenge #17-Doodles

Hello and Happy Wednesday!
Well, I've had a crazy last few days!
We have suffered a small dose of the flu here-well 3 of four of us anyways. So I was out of commission yesterday...but not to worry I had my TS #17 challenge all done and ready to post on Sunday...:o)
Until this morning when I realized I hadn't completed it right!! lol
Our sponsor for this week is the Sketching Stamper; and she very generously gave all of us designer's some brand new images to use on this challenge....:o) Well, to make a long story short I had to redo my whole card and redo my whole post......hhhmmmmm
So I was busy busy busy trying to get it finished on time!
The very awesome Sharon hosted this challenge and she created this gorgeous sketch for us to use:

She also wants us to add some doodling....yikes! I'm terrible with my free hand!
I'm not very happy with how my doodling turned out but oh well!

I used one of the beautiful images that the Sketching Stamper gave us. It reminds me of my two older daughters.
I colored in the image with copics. I colored in the blonde girl's shirt with BG72 and then shaded with BG75 and then I took my blender pen and made the diagonal check design-LOVE that technique! I really love how my coloring turned out on this image.

I made the paper flowers with my sizzix-thanks to the inspiration from my fellow TS designer Michele. ;o)
I also airbrushed around my images...LOVE that look!
The sentiments are all Close To My Heart
The paper is Jingle Bells by Close To My Heart

Okay so I didn't just want to leave my original card on my desk collecting here it is. ;o) Enjoy.....

Paper: Close To My Heart -Grace
Image: Magnolia-Fall 2009 Kit
Ribbon and Doodle stamps are Close To My Heart
I airbrushed the paper flowers (they were originally white) with four different colors
The leaves are made using my cricut and are also airbrushed
The sentiments are Close To My Heart

Thanks for stopping by and

These are both gorgeous Nicole - your colouring of Chris' image is fantastic. I hope you are all fully recovered from the flu.

Love them both Nicole, especially how you've put the colours together. Chris's image is fantastically coloured as is Tilda. I have been toying with getting an airbrush - I think you might have persuaded me - what a fabulous effect.
