Hiya and welcome to my Blog - sorry i've been away for quite a while I was ill all over Christmas Week, My Birthday and New Year too but I have finally started to feel a bit more Human so I ventured into my Kraft Korner yesterday to make this card for my Guest Designer position I was invited to by my friend Vannessa xx
Today begins a New Sketch Challenge over at 'Sketch Saturday Blog' and I'm honoured to have been asked to be Guest Designer for January
The Challenge this week is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and the prize is an amazing 7 Digi's of the winners choice Wowser!! Hop on over to the Blog to see the amazing work by the Gorgeous Staurday Girls Design Team xx
Here is the Sketch we followed this week
The Image I chose to use for this Challenge is from the New Slinky<3Tart brand by Tamara who was The Stamping Chef priviously I love this Image so much fun for expecting Mum's - (You can buy these Gorgeous Digi's from the new Slinky<3Tart Facebook Group - if you are not a member yet please make sure we are Friends on Facebook then I can add you to the group as its a Secret Group for now xx)
I have coloured her using Copic Markers - It was so nice to get my Markers back out after being unable to colour while I was ill, amazing how much I missed them - all you girls/guys who colour will totally understand
I chose these papers from First Edition 'Desert Bloom' mainly as I have never used the pad before and also because I like the colour tones I then picked out a few colours from the dotty background to colour the Image, even her skin tone matched in with the papers.
I followed the Sketch pretty much exactly as shown as I am a bit of a stickler for that.
The white of the cardstock I printed her on was very white against the colours of the papers so I tones it down using an archival ink pad from my Whispers Ink case
I hope you will visit again soon as I have made myself a challenge to Blog more often this year
