1 Sketch, 2 Cards

Good morning. Have we all had a good week. All I can say is TGIF....!!!!! It has been a long week in this house with my 6yr old home from school all week with the flu and gosh it makes a difference when he is home - not in a good way either. Now DH is sick too. Ahhhh I am supposed to be having a girls weekend and come hell or high water I will be going - sick hubby or not.

I have two cards for you this morning using the same sketch from The Secret Crafters Saturday challenge, papers and image but the difference is that I have used two different coloured card to colour on. Over at Shop Bron they have the Cordenons Blending card. It is very similar to the Express It Blending card but I tell ya what I love the Cream. The colours came out a little brighter but darker at the same time. Love how it came out.

Below is the two card colours side by side.
Cream on the left and white on the right.

I used the same Copic markers colours on all the same
parts of the stamp except the skin. I started with E00 with the
Cream card as I wanted it to be darker.

Bag: E31, 35, 39
Wings/dress trim: Y21, 23, 26, 28
