Sketch Challenge


I found a new blog site today, well it was new to me. The Divine Miss M at Reach for the Stars had put up a sketch on Tuesday and as soon as I saw it I knew it was for me. I had purchased a punch recently, it punches 3 different types of folding tabs, not sure what you would call them but I wanted to use it and this sketch was perfect. I needed a specific color ribbon and would you believe with my over ......... colors of ribbon I did not have the color, so, and please forgive as I stalk so many blogs I forgot which one it was that showed coloring the ribbon with your copics. My stamps were not small enough to get the sentiments in the litle squares so I went or it and did it freehand, as you can tell I have trouble with straight lines but that is the beauty of handname.

I like your card very much! I have yet to try coloring ribbon with Copic markers or any of the inks. Yet another technique to go on my list of theings to do. :)Your ribbon turned out awesome.

Great card Flossie, know what you mean about the ribbon. I have stacks and stacks of ribbon (I'm a little addicted) but never seem to have the exact shade I need!!

In response to your question on my blog my birthday is 3rd August :)

Love the bright, happy colors. Your interpretation of the sketch is perfect! Your tabs/tags are unique and adorable. I have tons of ribbon, rarely the shade I need. Does everyone except me have these copics???? LOL I need me some copics!

Michelle said...

Great card. I love your colors, your corners and your doodling. I never have the right color of ribbon either! Guess I need some Copics. :-)
