Hi there and Happy Thursday to you all. Yes, it's Deconstructed Sketch time.

I have a surprise for you this week. You may recall some weeks ago i began playing with a different coloring medium, Distress markers. It has taken me many, many hours of practicing to get the hang of it, and I finally think I may have colored an image that is "card worthy".

What do you think? (please be gentle)

I've made a little resolution to use at least one stamp per week from  my rather large stash that has never been inked up before. This stamp is the first. It's from Lily of the Valley and it is so sweet. Coloring fur is one of the most difficult things for me, and it seemed to be way easier with distress markers.
The happy birthday sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.
Papers are a mix of my minds Eye and Echo Park.

I used Jen's fabulous Sketch which was fabulously easy to follow.

You can find plenty of inspiration from the DT girls on their blogs.

Then head on over to THE DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH BLOG to link your creation up.

Have a great rest of the week,
