Friday Sketcher


I loved this weeks Friday Sketchers. Not done a sketch like this before so was a challenge for me. I used Tilda with Rose and Valentine Scrirt stamps. Normally when colouring with Copics, I use the pen direct to paper, on this occassion I put the colours on an acrylic block and picked them up from there. The difference is amazing, alot more time consuming bit the overall finish is so much better.



Backing papers are from Bearly Mine Designs and Laura Ashley. The Flower is Prima and I have added some wire ribbon, rafia and a copper brad. A Metal Butterfly brad and the 3 ladybird embellishments. The die cuts where done with my Cricut.
Will defo be using my Copics again with this method, great for shading!
Enjoy the rest of your week.

Hi Claire, beautiful card, ooh I really must try your tip for using copic markers, I just cannot seem to get a grip on mine, and was on the verge of giving them up. Your image is coloured beautifully and the papers and embellishments compliment it beautifully. DawnM.x
