Are You Ready For Some Football?

Are You Ready For Some Football? - Seems a Little Sketchy is sponsored this challenge by Crafty Sentiments. Here is the sketch. Isn't is a fun one?

This adorable image is Crafty Sentiments "Charles Bear Lets Play." My sentiment is also by Crafty Sentiments. My DP is Little Yellow Bicycles' Love Letters. I cut the helmet with my Cricut using Sports Mania and inked everything with Ranger's Black Soot ink. I have had the Sports Mania cartridge but this is the first time that I used it.

I colored the image with Copics. I am taking Copic classes with Suzanne Dean and one of our class assignments was to color an image using the dotting techinque to make the image look soft and cuddly with some texture. This was the one that I did for the class. If you look at my post below this you will see that I used the same techique, but this is the image that I first colored with this technique.
