There is a Fabulous sketch challenge going on at the Motivet Inspiration Blog. Join in and you will have a chance to win 5 Motivet stamps of your choice. The challenge runs until July 31th...so there is still lots of time to enter.
This is the card I've come up with from their great sketch. The stamp I used from Motivet is called Doraline Surprise ....clicking on her name will take you to her. They've had another recent release.....and it is now possible to order in US currency now.
This card is made for one of my daughters Birthday....It is late...but she told me, I have to make her one anyway...lol. I hope she likes it.
How I colored this image....
I've first based the image with copics (all very light colors)...and then used prismacolor pencils (oms) over them. The copics are a wonderful base....the prismacolor pencils blend like butter over them...and the whole image ends up being just a little brighter. Over this I still like to take my Twinkling h20's and just deepen the shading a tad.
**Be sure though...never to use copics over prismacolor pencils...or you will ruin your tips!!**
The sentiment is from Hero arts.
