Farm Fresh Friday--Mercy's sketch

Welcome to another edition of Farm Fresh Friday! This week's challenge is a sketch by the uber-talented Mercy Kerin! I *love* me a Mercy sketch! They are the best!

I used it with the fun and adorable Toby Painter. This image was a great opportunity to use my bright BG June Bug dp. Totally plays off the primary paint color palette that Toby has going on here. Now originally I didn't have the yellow shadow, but I had a little "oopsy" with my orange Copic. I tried blending it out with the yellow outline and just keep blending out in varigated yellow. I think it turned out pretty cool! Like I tell my monthly card class members, "Every 'oopsy' is another creative opportunity"!

You really nailed it with those BG papers... they are PERFECT with your cute little Toby! And the 'happy accident' of the yellow shadow is a great touch too! :)
