Finkle Fishing Gnome

Hello Stampers! Today's Tuesday Throwdown is a sketch challenge. I am using Lacy Sunshine's image called Finkle Fishing Gnome. I used Copic markers to color him. 

I have such a hard time using reds because they tend to bleed. I ended up using the colorless blender quite a bit to clean up the inks. After I was done coloring the image I dotted the grass areas with various shades of green. This technique is called pointillism and it took a bit longer but I like how the grass turned out. I sponged yellow for the background for added warmth. I added the ribbon and brads in place of the strip called for in the sketch.

Your coloring looks terrific! Reds can definitely be a challenge and the blender pen is a must when using them. I love the woodgrain dsp and colors you used. Wonderful card!
