You're A Keeper

The theme this week at the 52-Card Pick-up Challenge was solitude and the appreciation of alone time.

I thought this wonderful image from Keeper was a perfect way to illustrate that joy that can happen when you just hang out with yourself. For me the sentiment is directed to myself ... an affirmation that I'm a keeper.

Papers are Basic Grey Origins. The image was stamped in Chestnut Roan chalk ink and colored with pencils. I masked & stamped the grass portion of the image several times to fill my panel. The sketch is this week's Critter Sketch Challenge.

This looks gorgeous, Steph! I never would have thought it would come out so beautifully on that patterned paper, but your design and coloring have made it pop. TFS!
