Kathy's Challenge

(Second post of the day)

There is a really interesting and fun challenge going on over on Kathy's Blog!  Actually the challenge was between her and two crafty and talented friends, and Kathy has decided to open it up to all for a whole week.  Go check it out.  Basically colours have been provided as a guide, as well as a sketch, (but you need to read Kathy's blog post).  Here is the visual guideline:

You don't have to use those exact Copics, or copics at all, but just those colours, and you can add some neutral colours in too.

Here is my submission.

Paper: PTI Cardstock, Neenah Solar white
Ink: Copics, Memento Tuxedo Black, Memento Rich Cocoa
Stamps: My Favourite Things, PTI
Other: White gel pen, Corner Chomper

That gorgeous little girl is coloured in with the copics mentioned, no blending with other shades.  I used the same blue for example to create some shading on the dress by simply applying more of it where I wanted some shading. I did add the neutral skin colour, (she could not be left stark white, really!).

I created the fun border using one of those tiny, often neglected, little stamps that was in one of my PTI stamp sets, and then the faux stitching with my white gel pen.  The sentiment is from PTI.

Go play, it's fun!
