Getting Back on the Horse

Hello Everyone and Happy New Year!

Yes, I am a bit late.  Truth be told, I hit some serious crafting burnout and have been avoiding my craft room for 2 months. Yesterday, I started to get the itch.  The itch to play with Copics, play around with techniques and color. So, I got back on the crafty horse.
Feeling a bit rusty, so I went to a couple of trusty challenges to get inspired~

I used the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch~

And the colors from Color Throwdown~

I am also linking up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Anything Goes

I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then masked it off.  I also masked off the diagonal edge of the background.  The background is down with Copic markers and then texturized with alcohol and burlap.  The image was then colored with Copics.  The sentiment was perfectly placed using my MISTI.

Thanks for stopping by!
