Basic Grey Challenges - Sketch and Copic Creations.



Now onto my second post today... phew, please scroll down to see my Craft Stamper magazine post too :)
Well Martine has provided us with a fabulous sketch for Basic Grey challenges and I decided to combine my card with the Copic Creation challenge #21 feather Blending too...
Amy has wow'd us again with her magical pen skills and I could not resist her adorable sprite called Darby!!!
So, realised I feather blend my copic markers for nearly all my character's hair so found this quite an easy technique. I wanted a soft fairytale like colour scheme although I think it's VERY on the pink side... I blended the colours on her dress, (as I couldn't find my masking fluid I went over the dots with my colourless blender) her sprite boots and the little flower.
Also I have given my little sprite a generous spraying of glimmer mist as you can NEVER have enough spritely glittery magic, tee hee! You can probably see it better by clicking on the close up!


Supplies: Patterned Paper: BG: Porcelain; PTI: Kraft; Stamps: Sweet November: Darby; PTI: sentiment; Ink: Printer; Archival: black; Copic: markers; Tattered Angels: glimmer mist; Die's: Sizzix: Flower dasiy's; frame; Cuttlebug: scallop circle; Other: Zva: adhesive pearls; BG: buttons; Foof a la: buttons; John Lewis: ribbon; Lace; 3D foam;
Thanks for stopping by and hoping to have more to post Monday, if you have the chance there's a fabulous sketch over at Club Anya and Friends blog too... BiG HuGs have a wonderful fun weekend!!! Kim :)

Kim, this is gorgeous! I think I must not ever use the feathering technique (I am way heavy handed!) because I would sometimes like to get this gorgeous coloring that you have on her dress here and have not had much luck! :-)Traci
