Be gentle with me......

There's a great sketch over on Stamp Something challenge this week and some FAB DTcards here Right so for mine I have actually......coloured with pencils..SHOCK HORROR! OK Im not in any of your leagues yet but Ive tried [not that I had any choice with the nagging Ive had from a certains Scoopy-liscious person LOL}
Well here's the result using my Karisma [old style Prismacolor] pencils, blended and shaded to the best of my ability as a complete beginner. Im liking it eventhough its so far removed from my normal style.
Having said that the card looks a bit plain as if there's something missing, so may add the 'thing' when I find it!
