Fresh Brewed Designs Benefit!

This card is made from a very special Digi designed for a fundraiser to benefit Mrs. Debbie.  This is just one of the images of 9 in the set designed by Heather over at Fresh Brewed Designs.  This wonderful set is only $5.00 and all proceeds go toward the benefit!  It's a win/win!  You don't want to miss this opportunity!!  So head on over to Fresh Brewed Designs to check out the details and all the great images!

Now as for my card, I used the picture from the digi and typed in my own sentiment for my sister.  Then I colored with 'cheapie' colored pencils and masked off the heart around the sisters and inked with a dauber.  

I'm not a proficient 'colorer', but I did have fun!  I'm working on this skill, but find it difficult to shade and such.  I'll keep watching videos and practicing!  I'm in the process of deciding if I want to work with and invest in some better pencils or if I want to change mediums and go with Copics.  Hmmm......  Such decisions!  If anyone wants to share some advice/ experiences, I'm all ears!

I will share an artist I am following currently:  Sandy Allnock.  I am truly enjoying her style and attempting to pick up some hints.  

Thanks for stopping by today for a visit and be sure to check in on Friday for a new challenge post for Cut It Up!  I'm counting the days!
