Slow and Steady

The latest challenge over at House Mouse and Friends is a sketch challenge. You know that I love sketch challenges, so I had to participate. Now, selecting the perfect image was a bit of a challenge. A while ago, I let me 10yo pick a House Mouse stamp for me. He chose Slow Pokes which is an adorable image but very detailed. I decided that the time had finally come for me to ink it up and use it for a card. Here is the result:


I would love to hear what you think of the job I did with the image and my overall interpreation of the sketch.

Thanks for looking!
