Catch the Bug February Color Challenge

Good morning! We have a new challenge for you at Catch the Bug, check out the color palette:

This fun image has been printed in my stash and just waiting to be colored...I thought it was perfect for this color combo. I've colored with pencils and kept the papers simple to keep the focus on the image. The sketch is from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Here's a close-up:

Stella Says Sketch

Good morning! We've got a new sketch for you at Catch the Bug; it's a versatile one and you've got 2 weeks to play so I hope you'll give it a try. Here it is:

I colored up the adorable "Bee Bear Sitting" and added some sparkle to the antennae, wings, and heart. I turned this into a Valentine card and I'm liking the non-traditional colors. After I had photographed the card I realized I had forgotten the embellishment in the upper left corner...shoot! I seem to make most of my cards embellishment free these days. How about you...embellishments, yes or no? Here's a close-up:

Image: Bugaboo "Bee Bear Sitting" Digital Image
Sentiment: MFT Pure Innocence "Honey Bee" Set
Ink: Printer, Palette Noir Black, Signo Uni-ball Gel Pen (eyes)
Paper: G.P. 110 CS, SU! Daffodil Delight CS, PTI Pure Poppy CS, Pinecone Press Patterned Papers
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Spellbinders Nestabilities, Lil' Inker Designs Die, Foam Tape
