Happy Tuesday Everyone!

How are you?  Did you enjoy your Bank Holiday weekend?  Me and my man have had a busy old time playing golf and stripping out the borders in our garden and then re-planting them all!  I think I need a long weekend so I can have a rest ;o)

It's challenge time over at Papertake Weekly and this week's challenge is a sketch!  I adore working with sketches, they take all the thinking time out of a design for me - love em.

Our sponsor for the challenge is Simon Says Stamp so if you want to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend on their on-line store, then get your entries in over at Papertake Weekly.  As always, check out what the lovely DT girls have made to whet your appetite.

So, here is the sketch we want you to follow:

You can turn it upside-down or move some of the sections up and down, left to right etc as long as we can still see the sketch then you are in with a chance to win.

Here is the card I have made:

I've been playing with my Copic Air Compressor again - what do you think?  I know I have accidentally made the bottom of her legs blue but what about the shading around the image?  Let me know your thoughts - I think I still need a lot of practise :oS

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Papers:  Gotta Pixel - Golfin' Diva
Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary - Tee it Up by Krista Smith
Button Die:  Cheery Lynn - Buttons # 3

I have coloured the image with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23
Top:  R02 R12 R01 R00
Skort:  BG57 BG45 BG53 / R02 R00
Golf Club:  T6 T4 T2 / C3 C2 C1

I have outlined the image with B000 Copic using the Air Compressor
The papers have been edged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink

And that's it.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Thanks for popping by.
