Jen's Sketch Challenge 07-10-10

Time for another amazing sketch challenge by the talented Jen Del Muro. I just recently started using Copic markers and this was my first card using an element that I colored with my new markers. I took a class a little over a month ago at my local scrap store and have been practicing coloring and trying to build up my collection and finally decided to use one of the images on a card. I made this card for my sweet little Punkin (my niece Chrissi) for her 11th birthday. Chrissi has beautiful strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes but since I don't have markers in the correct colors to make strawberry blonde hair, this little punk girl is a brunette with green eyes to match her stylish outfit.

I must admit, I'm proud of the way the image turned out. I know that when I look back on this image in a year or two, I will see many, many flaws as my skills develop, but I think she turned out pretty cute, considering how little experience I have.

I also used the new Oliver collection from Basic Grey (love it) and was happy to be able to make a feminine card with the collection, even though it was designed for little boys.

Patterned Paper - Basic Grey (Oliver Collection)
Digi Stamp - The Greeting Farm
Flowers - Prima Marketing (e-line) - didn't have any red glimmer mist, so I sponged Riding Hood Red ink from SU! on them and then spritzed with Pearl glimmer mist from Tattered Angels
Brads - Basic Grey
Sentiment Stamp - American Crafts
Cardstock - Neenah Solar White
Copic Markers - E0000, E02, E25, E33, E09, B39, G28, C3, Colorless Blender Pen
