Hello from Prickles!

Happy Friday! Yay!
So after the week that I've had, I felt like just sitting down and doing some coloring!
Sometimes you just need to do that to "chillax" a bit!! LOL!
I think I was starting to feel as "prickly" as this cute fellow you will be meeting today! :)

This ADORABLE fellow is another monthly progressive set over at From the Heart and this digital set is called Prickles Says Hello.  I used my favorite method of coloring with my Copics.
I also followed along with the sketch that had on their blog as well. (see below)
I think I am on a mission to use up those papers that have been lurking around in my stash in what seems like FOREVER! (It felt good to use some!) I took a flower stamp and stamped it with white pigment ink all over my dotted brown papers which I thought helped match the white panel.
The banner sentiment was printed out and I cut the "fish tails" on it.
I've also pulled out a REALLY old metal flower charm and glued it on the brown circle which I cut off on the edge of the card.  I put a rhinestone in the center of it for a bit of sparkle too.

So you will see up close my coloring details and that I've added some glossy accents to his eye glasses as well as his nose.  I've used some glitter gel pens to color in the butterfly and the flowers on the ground.  A couple of dots were added to his cheeks with a white gel pen.

Wishing you all a wonderful Father's Day weekend!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!  Come back on Sunday to see what's next!


Here are the challenges I'd like to add this card to:
