Color Throw Down
has a great color challenge!
To join in the challenge above!


I put together the fabulous color scheme from The Color Throwdown and the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches
and came up with this!
















The color scheme was the hardest part for me, but I had a blast with the inking technique. Adding water after the first couple layers of color were put down and then blotting it up left some interesting white marks. The background turned out super fun! 
The sketch fell into place and then I put my own twist on that with a more natural look with the vines and leaves :)

Thank you to both blogs for the excellent challenges to push me outside my box!
