This is what I created for this week's sketch challenge. I was working on this at the Farmer's Market & Craft fair this week. There's a young boy, about 7 yrs old, by the name of Lee, who watches me intensely when I'm working on my stamping. He is always very polite, and asks if I need help loading up or unloading. This week, I asked him if he can color, and he said..."I guess so". Then I asked him if he'd like to help me color the cats ( I made more than one of this card). His eyes lit up, and he said, "sure". I gave him some pencils, and showed him how to do the shading with the Gamsol and the blending stump. He thought it was the coolest thing. Then he wanted to show me what he brought along. In a backpack he had all of his coloring pencils, and crayons, and a sketch pad. He showed me his work, and I was amazed at how talented he was. I now have the finished card, and I'm sure he's excited to see how they turned out. His name will definitely be on the backs of these cards.
