Show me the SKETCH

Here I am to share the card I showed over at Quixotic yesterday. Another creation using Kraftin' Kimmie - Merry and Bright, 'cause I can't get enough of her. She just sums Christmas day up. The only thing with these stamps is the eyes, I dunno how to colour them? Perhaps add a little grey or blue shadow to the bottoms? How do you add dimension to them? Obviously I don't want them looking like they're popping from her skull, but you know what I mean. I hope.

So I've used our SKETCH as inspiration. Check out the sketch, the details and all of the entries HERE. Kim also posted an update over the weekend, check that out HERE

I paired her up with some gorgeous new papers from Basic Grey - Nordic Holiday. Have you SEEN these papers?! Wow. They just sum up Christmas for me. Love all of the patterns and the cool and blue navy blues they've thrown in there!! Delish.
Okay.. okay. Picture.

I have coloured the image using a mix of Copics and ProMarkers, but you already knew that.. right? Skin: YR000, YR00, E11, R20; Hair: E50, E51, E55
Greens: Pine, Forest Green, Grass; Reds: Burgundy, Crimson, Berry Red; Blues: Petrol Blue, Marine; Turkey: Spice, Ginger, Oatmeal
Thank you for stopping by. I'm off to catch up with emails then get stuff sorted for posting out tomorrow.
