Inkspiration Challenges - Sketch February


I usually think of vintage images as being soft and muted - and there are many of those images available from the Inkspirational Challenge sponsors this month , Eclectic Anthology. This one though (also from Eclectic Anthology), is a bit more kitsch and brightly coloured. I know sometimes they used to colour in photos after developing them. I wanted to play up the colours and using the sketch gave me a great framework to do this.
What will YOU do with this sketch?  Please come and join us at Inkspirational Challenges and show us what you've done.
