Here is my interpretation of the sketch, I did tweek it a bit by moving my main image down to the bottom, it seemed more balanced there. I am thinking of giving this card to a friend who has just welcomed her first baby.
For this card I used the image Cute just got cuter a free image from All Dressed Up.
The dog is coloured with these copics:
E31, E33, E35, E37.
B0000, B000, B02, B05
I stumbled across these All Dressed Up images and saw they had a challenge blog, so I decided I'd give it a go. The image I have used is Abi Ballerina and she is actually a freebie (you can find it here)...I couldn't believe it as it's one of my favourites. I also saw this sketch over at Seize the Sketch #5 and thought it really highlighted Wendy Burns' beautiful image.

Well I have been on a hiatus for quite some time. To be perfectly honest I didn't realise how long. Just been a little busy, we took a lovely trip to Queensland in July for our 20 year anniversary (I will share photos soon). Since returning I haven't really felt like colouring, so I decided to take a few classes with Alyce from Kit n Clowder. I really enjoyed her classes and loved getting the kits so I could put the cards together. I often have difficulty putting cards together. I tend to go for the clean and simple cards, so these are something completely different for me.
The first class I took was Picture Marci and here is my finished result. Please note frantage is not my friend...I don't think it ever will be!
The second class/kit I completed was Charmings. I used the no lines technique by stamping my image with toffee crunch momento ink. All these pleats were an incredible but fun challenge for me. And her hair well I am in awe of how Alyce colours hair so it was fun to see how she colours and learn from her.
I am so grateful to Alyce and Arnolds for making these kits/classes available for those of us who can't attend live workshops, as far as I know there are no copic classes offered anywhere near where I live. It means I get to join in and learn new things without having to pay for airfares!
If you haven't seen any of Alyce's work I suggest you head over to her blog Kit and Clowder and check it out.
