Papertake - sketch challenge


This week on the Papertake challenge blog, we had a lovely sketch by Katharina to work from. I love working from sketches and have been trying to find time all week to do this one. I finally got it done.. a bit late as the new challenge is due tomorrow!



The background paper is from the Cool Dude range by Daisy Bucket. I love their papers as they are double sided so you get lots of choice. I coloured the H&S image with Supracolour watercolour pencils and used a brown pen for the corner doodles. The sentiment stamps are by See'Ds. I used a punch to cut out the centre from the round sentiment, chalked the edges and attached it to the girls hand with a small length of string.

What a beautiful card. Brown and blue are two colours I thought I disliked, but you make the rich brown and jewel bright blue work so well together that I think I'll have to add a similar combination to my palette, if you don't mind. Thanks for sharing.
