Friday Sketchers


Here is my card for this weeks Friday Sketchers which was this gorgeous sketch by Kristine .....I love it!

I have moved the flowers to the bottom but kept everything else the same....hope that's ok.

I have also tried a new technique with the colouring on the hat and the trousers, where you use the blender pen to apply the colour. I saw it on a tutorial for Copics and thought I would see if it worked with the promarkers....I need a bit more practise, but I would love to know what you think.....better, worse or just the same??.....any comments or constructive critisism gratefully received!!!

Here are the details
  • Image: Sweet and Sassy from Sugar Nellie
  • Paper: s.e.i. and Coredinations CS
  • Medium: Promarkers
  • Sentiment: Love sentiments by AmyR at ATS
  • Flowers, brads and ribbon from stash

Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you might leave, have a super Sunday
