The tale of the forgotten Sprouts

So I mentioned yesterday that my desk was a disaster zone once again... well, I was going to do something about it and started cleaning yesterday evening. I was organizing all of the Wild Sprouts sketches that I had made and used for the challenge, putting them away in a folder when what did I find? Two sad little Sprouts that had gotten lost in the shuffle somehow... both still in pencil sketch form but pretty fully realized.
At first I was just going to file them away with the rest of the crew... never to be finished, I mean the challenge is closed so what's the point right? But they kept giving me these pleading looks and me being a big softy decided they needed their day in the spotlight just like all their friends. So rather than finish cleaning I got these two pen and inked and onto cards and I think we all feel better now... ;)
Granted, my desk is worse off now than when I started but I'll tackle that later. :)
For now,
Meet Kate.
Kate is quite the little hipster and has a real passion for fashion. She loves to shop and design and never leaves the house wearing the same outfit twice. One day she dreams of making it onto Project Runway.
Meet Addy.
Addy is a true little beach baby. She loves nothing more than to spend summer days swimming and laying out on her towel reading magazines and her favorite books. Who knows, she may even take up surfing one of these days just to meet that cute instructor...

Ok Addy's hair is just TOO CUTE! So what if the contest is over, you should put these into a portfolio and send them to Marie to make your own line of sprouts, I swear :) Oh and I love Kate's little jacket and rolled jeans. You should see all the money I've spent on these in my head, LOL.

Gabby said...

I officially HATE YOU! LOL! I have loved EVERY SINGLE SPROUT you've come up with! I am jealous of your talent and hope that even though the contest is over...to see more of your AMAZING artist talent! Have you thought about having your line of digi'd or maybe even team up with Marie to turn your Sprouts into digi's? I would SO buy them up! I wanna be like you! :D <3

Oh Amy, they are both just adorable. I love Kate's hair. It is just the shinniest red. She must spend alot of time on it..lol..I love Addy's swim wear. She is sure to get on with the instructor!

Ha ha! I totally know how that is, losing stuff in the craft mess. My table is pretty scary now too. I've even migrated to the kitchen table so I don't have to deal with the other one!

Kate's story made me giggle. I know people like her. Love her hoop earings. Addy is just stinkin cute! Wonder what kind of book she's reading.....
