Sketch N Scrap Twistback Thursday Sketch Challenge

I love the sketch for Twistback Thursday at Sketch N Scrap, I love my pictures and I love where I drew my inspiration for the colors but I am not sure I am happy with the end result.  The twist this month is to use ONLY white card stock but you can color, ink or paint it any color you want.

I drew the inspiration for the colors from the daily soup signs that would hang in the doorway at Myra's.  Myra's Dionysis was a little veggie friendly restaurant in my neighborhood within walking distance.  Her made from scratch soups hit the spot on a cold winter day.  So many times lately I have wanted to go there but alas Myra had to retire someday...some former employees are trying to open back up in another location.  They are planning on publishing a recipe book of her delicious soups!  I can't wait.  My favorite was Curry Peanut and my hubby's was Veggie Miso.  

I loved inking up my veggies from Freshly picked.  I really like how they turned out.

I liked my little gnome lady, too, I made her hair gray like Myra's.

Here's the sketch:
