Last week, I went shopping at Isabella's Sketchbook and this little girl " Garden Gift" was one of my purchases. I could hardly wait to color her with Copics and decided to use her in a few challenges:
Isabella's Challenge: This week the challenge is to "Cut It Out". I cut out the image and attached with dimensionals.
Midnight Madness:  Sketch Challenge #63
                                  Shown below on right
Really Reasonable Ribbon:  Use ribbon dress photos shown on their blog  for an inspiration. Anything goes for this challenge but must use ribbon. I was inspired to use this lovely dress image and add a ribbon bow to the back of dress. Also used ribbon across the scallop edged mat. Hard to see -same color as mat. Decided to not add sentiment until I send card. Simple card but does have 6 layers.
Image: Isabella's Sketchbook "Garden Gift"
Copics: B01, E31, E33, E39,  E0000, E00, E50, R20, RV21, RV29, Y02, Y13, YG03
Papers: DCWV Glitter Paper from Spring         Showers Stack
            GKD PL "Lemon Drop"
            Bazzill Texture CS for base card and mat
Punch: Martha Stewart Lace Scallop
Ribbon from Collection
This is the second sketch that I have colored with copics....self-taught through reading and video watching and practice.  The hardest part is to stay in the lines because ink flows so quickly. Need more practice to have lighter strokes. Glad that I have that colorless blender to push back the mistakes. Interesting how many Copics you can use in one image.

What a wonderful card. I love the clean layout because it makes your beautifully coloured cutie the star. That was a great idea to add the bow to the back of her dress. Thanks for joining us at Isabella's Sketchbook.

if I color on GKD's cardstock, dont usually have trouble with ink going over the lines...too much (-:
