And here is my latest card with the sketch...
I started with the most luscious pink cardstock - from the Mia's Cottage cardstock Package. The pattern paper is a fun one from Kaleidoscope Girlz 8x8 Wing it Collection pad of papers - such FUN colors! The accent is a pink flower gem from the pink gem collection.
I of course colored my girl from Rolling By with Copic's - they seem to be the only coloring medium I can reach at the moment! I think I have become spoiled!
As I am writing this up I realized I never colored her hair! Did you notice that before I told you - just for fun leave me a comment I am curious! I always tell my stamping friends that THEY are their worst critic and we really are aren't we! When some one makes a little mistake I always say "No one will notice that but you!" and this will be a testament to it for sure!
When I was coloring her shorts the RV02 and 04 were really brite for the pink of my card - so to tone them down a smidge I just went over them with the RV34. It took the bite off the pink and really did a good job making it match up. When you are using your copic's don't be afraid to try things like that to get the exact color you are looking for! You do have to remember the color numbers and how they work though - so try on a scrap piece first!
