Sketch Saturday - Sketch #353

Welcome back to another Saturday and a new sketch to play with!

My image is from our sponsor Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  I wasn't thinking about the sketch when I chose this image, so I had the opportunity to think a little more creatively about how I wanted to use it.
I decided to use the image as my flag and pulled out an MFT stitched fishtail die to create my shaped panel.  The other two layers are trimmed using my layers.  The image is called Thank You Tulip Block.  I ended up cropping off the black line border around three sides and used my gingham ribbon to camouflage the 4th.  It gives a whole new look to the digi!

My image is colored with Copics.  I used R22, 24, 27 and R39 for the deepest shading.  The leaves are a combination of Gs and YGs, with the lights color YG00 and the deepest YG 67 (which I cannot find on my craft desk to save my soul!!).

Stop by the Sketch Saturday Blog to take a peek and be inspired.  I'm excited to see your take on the sketch!
