CTMH Cruisin' with Mojo Monday #258 and H2H Challenges

I haven't played along with a sketch challenge in far too long so this week I decided I'd spend a bit of time getting creative with sketches again.  Sketch challenges are wonderful for getting your creative juices flowing.  I try to up the challenge for myself by starting with a stamp set I haven't used or used enough that I feel like I've gotten my money's worth from it yet!

I bought the set "Born to Ride" several month's ago because of the hot rod flames.  I really like the other images too but hot rod flames are a running joke in our house (from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends if you've ever seen that show) and so I just had to get this set.

I used my Gray Wool and Honey watercolor pencils to shade in the details on the motorcycle and then went over the metallic parts of the image with Liquid Glass.  I like how it gives the image some dimensionality with the matte tires and shiny motorcycle.

I made this card for these challenges - check them out:
2.  Heart 2 Heart Challenges - BIG size cards (this one is 5x6.5")

Products I used on this card (all CTMH unless noted):
Cruisin' Paper (retired)
Watercolor Pencils

Thanks for stopping by today!  If you haven't had a splash of creativity in your day yet, I hope you'll pop on out to these two challenges sites and have some fun.  I truly believe that we all need regular doses of creativity to feed our souls.
