Motivet Challenge

This week over at Motivet blog, they challenge that our card be monochromatic, excluding the main image.  I find that most times I work better with a sketch so I also incorporated their previous challenge, which was this sketch.  So cute!

I never knew walnuts (which are on her pj's) were green first.  Well maybe I knew but I had to find it on the internet to make sure today.  The walnuts and candy canes are colored with Spica pens and then glossed.  I put Twinklets on the snowflakes and the fur on her hat.  What a great challenge!  It's not easy to do only one main color so that was a great challenge thanks!!

Stamp Something & Sketch Saturday Challenges

This week I am entering my card into the challenge over at Stamp Something who wants to see a Winter Wonderland theme.  I don't much care for winter but I love making winter cards!!

At Saturday Sketch they offered this sketch which I rotated to the left.  

I just LOVE this image and she colors up so nicely.  I used my Copics, ok is there anything else?? I just love the richness and vibrancy they can give.  I used Flower soft for her hand warmer (not sure what that is called) and Bo Bunny flowers, nesties, Quickutz holly die, EK Success leaf punch, nesties and some misc ribbon. 

Have a creative day ladies!!
