New colouring and sketch card

Morning all. Hope we are all having a great week. Did you enjoy the Spesch blog hop yesterday. It is still running so if you want to win some new stamps from the new release go to the blog here.

It is Thursday so it means it is my Mad for Markers show day. Now on the weekend I had the Copic Intermediate Certification and we learnt new techniques that I love but will have some time to get used to. I made this card using the Sunday Sketch and Stamp sketch. I decided to use this sketch as it ties in somewhat with the rule of thirds that I learnt at the class.

The new TOMIC challenge started this week so this will be perfect for that also as it ties in with their first challenge of 'Make a Birthday creation'. Here ya go LOL.

Now if you look at all the Copic colours you will see that I used a lot more than I normally do but in some respects - less. Weird I know.

Copic used:
Skin: E000, E21, E11, E04
Hair: E50, 35, 39, 49
Top: R21, 24, 29, B97 (complimentary colour)
Pants: B91, 95, 97, BG10, YR12(CC)
Present: YG11, 23, 25
Ribbon on present: YR000, 12, 14

I used the Neenah 352gsm card from Mad for Markers.
