2 Sketches 4 You #59

It's 2 Sketches time! Kazan has whipped up an awesome little sketch for us this week.
This week's sponsor is AI Factory. I got to use this image of a caterpillar from Hang in There. One thing I'm already loving about being on the 2 Sketches team, is practicing my coloring skills (or lack there of). It really is so relaxing.

One tip on printing digital stamps. I have a stack of 4x6 cardstock cut and ready to put in my photo printer slot. I like the fact that I don't have to waist a whole sheet of paper when I just need a quarter (or smaller) section of it.

Here's what I came up with!
I used my white chalk ink to stamp my large dots from For the Love of Dots. Unfortunately it did not cover as well as I would have like. It seems that craft ink works a lot better on cork.
