New Sherbert, Challenge Card



I got my Sherberts and just love these cute characters. They are lovely to colour, well done Pollycraft! This card meets three challenges, although that wasn't my intention. I've coloured her with Copics and added PeeWee glitter to her wings. Stamped round edge with a P Imp stamp. Haven't used my Copics in a while but I do prefer the colour range to Promarkers. Not enough pinks in the Promarker range in my opinion. The papers are BG 2 Scoops which are my favourite. Got the new Bittersweet but haven't the courage to take a page out as I only have 1 pad. Edged with a green Galaxy Marker and used Inksenntial White Pen to highlight. Rub Ons are 7 Gypsy, flower, brad and ribbon from stash. Thid card fits this weeks challenges over at Pollycraft, Stamp Challenge and the sketch is Friday Sketchers.

Hi Claire, what a gorgeous card and I know exactly what you mean about not wanting to cut up your bittersweet papers - I have lots of papers like that - I just love to look at them. Congratulations on managing to find some bittersweet, I have not been able to track down any of the 6x6 pads - I have however just this morning orderd some of the 12x12. Great minds must think alike as I have just posted a card with the very same image on it - spooky!!!

Have a great day.

This is really cute Claire. I love your colouring with the Copics. I'm very interested in what you say re the colour choices between Copics and Promarkers. I haven't bought any pens yet but I'm leaning towards the copics.
