Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 113 - Sketch

Good Day to You All

Without further ado lets get stuck in to the New Year with our very first challenge over at Totally Gorjuss.

This week's challenge is a sketch and I'm going to bore you all again by telling you how much I just love working with sketches - heh heh heh ;o)

This weeks sponsor is the wonderful Joanna Sheen and here is the sketch for the challenge:

We would love to see all your creations following the sketch but remember, you can play around with it a little, maybe turn it upside-down or create a mirror image; basically have a good play so long as we can see that you have based your card on the sketch.

Make sure you go and see the gorgeous creations our lovely ladies over at Totally Gorjuss have made for your inspiration - they are wonderful as always.

Here is the card I have made:

It's my Dad's Birthday on Monday and I just totally fell in love with this image - it is such good fun.  Got to say it feels a little weird not making a Christmas-themed card!

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Bugaboo "Gus Collecting Wrinkles"
Digi Papers:  Gotta Pixel "Dad & Me" 

Image coloured with Copics and Promarkers

Skin:  E11 E00 E000 R20 R30
Hair:  C4 C2 C1
Balloons:  True Blue / Azure / Sky Blue / YR18 / YR09 / YR07 / B02 / B01 / B00
Hat:  True Blue / Azure / Sky Blue / YR18 / YR09 / YR07
Shorts:  YR18 / YR09 / YR08 / T4/ T3 / T2
Socks:  T4 / T3 / T2
Shoes:  T6 / T5 / T4 / T3
Shading & Outline:  W5 / W3 / W1 / W0 / Blender Pen

Everything has been edged with "Weathered Wood" Distress Ink and I have used Glossy Accents on his glasses and the clock face.

As per usual, I have copied the sketch through to the inside of the card:

And that's it from me.

I do hope you are able to join us over at Totally Gorjuss and thank you for all your wonderful comments they really do mean so much.

Great card Hazel your Dad should love it. I am having a little chuckle though because when you said you put glossy accents on his glasses and clock face I had to look twice because I thought it was his false teeth he was holding not a clock!! I think I need to go to Specsavers lol! xx
