Bellarific Friday (on Saturday!)

The Bellarific Friday challenge yesterday was to create something with a sports theme, so I decided to get Tyler the Jock inky so I could play along! I took a LOT of inspiration from the uber-talented Linda Heavens for coloring Tyler. She is a master with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol and I used Copics on my card, but I still took a lot of coaching from the way she shadows and highlights different areas of the image. I'm nowhere near as good as she is, but it sure does help to have a fabulous sample to follow!
Hope you're having a good weekend! Happy stamping, and thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Tyler the Jock, sentiment (Stamping Bella)
