Get Sketchy and Alphabet Challenges

Good evening all. Only two challenges tonight so short and sweet. The sketch I have used is from the new Challenge Blog at Get Sketchy. I would just like to say "Good Luck" to Bree and her DT on their new venture. Their first sketch is lovely and shown below.

I have combined the sketch with the challenge at the Alphabet Challenge Blog which is U for...... and in my case it is Umbrella. This is another of Dustin Pike's freebies, which I loved. By the way I have bought some of his images too - they are great and very reasonably priced.
I coloured him in with watercolour pencils and some glitter on his wings. I then mounted the image on black card and gold miri card. The papers were freebies from a craft magazine but I can't remember which one (Sorry). The white shaped piece is from the Candy Doodles CD Rom from Polka Doodles. Headsup for those who love the CDs there is a show on Create & Craft tomorrow at 9am with the new Christmas CD Rom - Jingle Jangle Christmas - it looks fab. The flowers were from Just Pots Funky flowers and a mixture of pink (Thanks again Liz) & purple.

Well that's all folks - past my bedtime but wanted to get this on.

Night night.
