Sketch Saturday #275

Deb created this week's Sketch Saturday sketch and the challenge sponsor is the etsy shop Whimsy and Stars Studio.  I am using one of their fall digis called Alex's Pumpkin.  Isn't he just darling? Maybelle (the artist) has so many sweet-faced children to choose from!

I dug into my scrap drawer for the papers. (Something I am trying to develop a habit of doing lately!)  I stippled the ground to make it look like fall leaves under his feet.

True confessions  - I started out trying to make khaki-colored pants, but couldn't find the right colors so I settled for brown!  If anyone has a Copic color combo for a nice khaki, please feel free to leave your ideas in a comment!

Be sure to see what the DT members have come up with to inspire you this week.  Can't wait to see what you do with the sketch!


Challenges entered:

Make it Monday - anything goes
Paper Playtime - 3 different papers
Party Time Tuesdays - grandparents day card

  1. I love the colors you used in his hair!!! It's fabulous. Love the brown pants, but for Khaki I would probably use E51, E53, and E55. Or E40, 41, 42, 43. This is so super cute!!!
