Hi, I'm Torrey. Welcome to Left Field, where creativity runs amok and imagination is ALWAYS more important than knowledge. Shoes are not allowed but ties are optional. This is a repository of snippets from my life out here in Left Field. One never knows what shiny bits of creativity will be found here... cards, scrapbook layouts, photography, poetry, recipes, ponderings, rantings and musings. It could be anything! Life in Left Field is always changing, always real, always ...interesting.

Gettin' Sketchy at Bombshell

Every month at Bombshell Stamps Blog, we host a sketch challenge. As always our sketch is devised by our illustrious leader, Kathi:
I decided to use the Bombshell A Pirate's Life stamped image that I just colored up for my Colored Pencil Tutorial (to be posted on June 22, 2012 here and on the Bombshell Blog!!!). I mean...she was all dressed up, so to speak, so I had to put her somewhere cool. She is stamped and colored on Kraft cardstock with my coveted Prismacolor pencils. Here's my take on this month's sketchy sketch. I actually sort of followed the sketch this time. Amazing.

So come and play with us at Bombshell! You have until the last day of June to enter this month's sketch challenge for a chance to win FaBuLoUs prizes!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
