Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 139 - Sketch

Hello Everyone

Once again, my second post of the day - please scroll down for my earlier one.


Well, it's the first Saturday of the month which can only mean one thing for us at Totally Gorjuss - it means this week's challenge is a sketch - whoop whoop!  For those of you who drop by regularly you will know that I just sooooo lurve working with sketches, it just takes all the hard work out of thinking about the layout.

Our lovely generous sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen, so to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in her shop let's see all your wonderful creations that follow the sketch.  Don't forget you can mirror it and flip it etc, so what are you waiting for .....  Oh yes, it would be nice for you to see the actual sketch wouldn't it!  Well here it is:


Easy peasy lemon squeezy eh?

Here is the card that I have made:


The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary Honey by Krista Smith
Papers:  My Minds Eye "Love Me" from Dies to Die For
Kraft Card:  Bazzill Kraft Cardstock from Dies to Die For

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30
Hair:  E55 E53 E51 E50
Top:  E42 E41 E40
Skirt:  R24 R22 R21
Tights:  R24 R22 R21 / E42 E41 E40
Boots:  T8 T7 T6 T5 T4 T3 / R24 R22 R21
Rabbit:  E34 E31 E30
Shading:  W5 W3 W1 W0

I have used my current favourite masking technique and gone around the image with Weathered Wood Distress Ink

All the papers have been outlined with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink

And there you have it.  As always make sure you check out what the lovely DT girlies have made for you over at the Totally Gorjuss site.

I hope you all have a great weekend whatever you may be doing.

Thank you for all your lovely comments.

Take care and be safe.

Tabbatha Sandoval said...

I'm really happy that you post your Copic colors, because I can't color reds for the life of me! I love the way you did her skirt - it is just to beautiful. At least now I know what reds work well together, and that they can blend. Thanks so much Hazel!
