Lucy's New Year Sketch Challenge Week - Day 4

Hi There, just managed to make some time tonight to play along with Day 4 of Lucy's sketches!  You can have it a look at her sketch HERE.  It's another great one!  Here is my card:

Paper: PTI cardstock, Patterned Paper (Doodlebug Design)
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Stamps: Hero Arts

No design explanations really required tonight as I think it is quite self-explanatory.  I love that patterned paper as it has some nice embossed hearts on it.  I nearly made a right old mess when I realised that I wanted to matt the little girl on the same green cardstock and did not have a big enough piece left, so I had to improvise and used my Copic marker to draw around the edge of the circle, it's not perfect, but it worked.

Sorry that I am making this a rather short blog tonight but I think I am still tired from a very long run I had on Sunday!  But thank goodness we are tapering now, which means that for the next 3 weeks my legs get to recuperate in order to do it all again plus some, at the end of the month!  But I am psyched and I feel totally ready to do this marathon.

Wishing you all a good night, it's raining here, totally perfect for crawling into bed!

P.S. Thank you to all the wonderful people passing by my blog and leaving me such wonderful comments, you are the greatest!
