SSS Wednesday Challenge & Freshly Made Sketches

It's Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week, using Wild Rose Studio products if we can.  
My very first clear stamp was a Wild Rose 'Milton' stamp.  He was so cute hanging on that hook in the craft shop I was visiting for the first time, and I really wanted him, but I was fairly new to paper crafting, and had no idea how to colour a stamped image.  I said so to my husband, who reminded me of our family motto, "You don't know if you don't try."

"I know," I said, "but I could never colour like that."  From over my other shoulder came a voice.  "Promarkers, Chica.  Promarkers."  I don't know why she called me chica, but she explained briefly about alcohol markers, and the shop sold promarkers.  

So I left the shop some time later with that stamp, and a few promarkers. I have tried plenty of other colouring mediums in the ten or so years since that day, but I still love my promarkers.  

So here is Milton with what I always imagine is a valentine.  I actually used copics (E35, E34, E31, E30, R85, R83) to colour him in this time.  

I have used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
