Friday Sketchers

>> Saturday, 15 November 2008

The sketch for this weeks Friday Sketchers was a challenging one for me! I struggle when there are lots of layers and it takes me ages to choose the papers and card. I don't have a natural eye for putting different patterns together so sometimes I think the card can look a bit messy. I'm pretty pleased with this one though! I've coloured Tilda with my Prisma pencils and I was a bit more sparing with the colour this time to try and get a better depth of shading. All the papers are Basic Grey Euphoria which does make it easier to use them together and I inked some of the edges with burgandy versacolor. The rest of the 'ingredients': Large brad - Basic Grey, small brads - Lasting Impressions, Prima flowers, Quickutz photo corner.

Thanks for your lovely comment Sharon. Hope you're having a nice Sunday. I got some promarkes a couple of weeks ago which are nice and a lot cheaper than copics. Hopefully I'll be able to build up the set gradually. Chris x
