SKETCHY FRIDAY #9...USING GUS THE WORM LUCKY IRISH

Gus, is one of the new releases from SK Digis for St. Patrick's Day and he/she is so cute.

anyway, i did better following the sketch this time ( i normally do not).

let me introduce gus the worm lucky irish,
(i am calling her gussy-I made it a girl)
4.25" X 5.5"
since i have been trying different coloring mediums lately (to practice) i have to share i am using crayola watercolors here. i found an old one from my son's childhood years and decided to give it a try. what you see here are the results of it. not bad at all, if you ask me (wink)
(you can click on all the photos for a bigger view)
gussy favors her beauty in watercolors, yeah!

look at he nice blending of colors too, oh my!

hope you like it and give this week's SKD challenge a try. 
you do not need any sk digis to participate, and you might even win some if you join us. the winners are picked randomly, so we all have a chance to win.
come on, you do not even need markers, go and find a forgotten watercolor set and give it a go. :D

Supplies Used:
digital image:     SK DIGIS
patterned papers:     unknown (can not remember)

please, come and join us!

thanks so much for stopping by the hut, it really means a lot to me.

TIP: i want to repeat that i do all my cutting by hand, taking my time and using my old pink (retired now) precision scissors from   the EK brand....regular scissors do not do me any good for fuzzy cutting. but, maybe they do work for you, you have to try it.
