All day yesterday I thought it was Wednesday.

So when it finally dawned on me that the sketch challenge is TODAY, I pulled out some new images and played with them and my Copic markers.

They still intimidate me a bit, but I won’t get better if I don’t practise, right?

I stamped this cute little girl from Paper Pretties (remember I won it at their last Pyjama party?) in Black Palette Ink on White cardstock. Joy was so sweet to include some sheet of white cardstock with my Copics on my birthday order so I could play with them right away. I need to ask her where she got it and what brand it is. Because the Copics work great on it.

I stamped the image again on BasicGrey Lily Kate paper, cut out her skirt and set it aside. Next I colored the girl with Copics (E00 skin, E02 bear nose and girl cheek, R83 an R85 for heart, YR31 and 23 for hair, E31 and 33 for bear, BV02 for bow and outlined it with C1). The image was layered on a scalloped piece of Olive Prism Cardstock that was cut with one of the rectangle Nestabilities templates.

The card base is a light green 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Prism cardstock folded in half. Next is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ Olive Prism cardstock piece. The BasicGrey Lily Kate paper was cut into 1 7/8″ x 3″ and 1 7/8″ x 2″ rectangles and pieced together. I added a white gel pen dotted border on the blue paper and paper pierced the paisley one. May Arts double sided ribbon was tied around it and three green brads were added on the bottom left. The brads have 1/4″ circles of the Olive cardstock underneath.
