Winter skater

I decided to try coloring an image today with colored pencils, because I do not own very many pro markers and no Copics and I have a lot of crayolas.  I joined the Scrapbook stamp Society  and I wanted to try some of their  images.  I am probably out of their league, but what the heck...lets have fun:)))
   I grabbed a freebie digi called Lil Ragamuffin Winter Skater by Sherri Baldy.  I colored it in as I said with crayolas Colored pencils, tried my best with shading.  She is such a cute lil skater I think.

    For embellishment I printed off some flowers with assorted cardstock,  the large pink one was layered and  attatched together with a rhinestone brad, all were inked on the edges, and a little Stickles was added for a little shimmer.  In her hair I added a couple small rhinestones. The pattern paper in the background was from a new card stack I got from DCWV,I love it, it is called the Fresh Floral Stack.
  I am entering it into their challenge.."Pretty in Pink" on their Challenge blog here so you can check it out.  The theme of the Challenge is PINK as you probably can tell:) lol  Hope you like
happy crafting cathy
