Hey everyone, happy Sunday to you all!! It's that time again for another great card sketch challenge for the Feeling Sketchy blog!
Here's the pic for Card Sketch #132:
Make sure to stop by the Feeling Sketchy blog to play along and check out all the wonderful projects created by the Design Team members.
There is a great prize pack for you to win from our sponsor: Polkadoodles and I just want to give them a big, "Thank you," for for providing the Design Team members a few images to use on our projects.
The card I created for today features one of the adorable images from the Polkadoodles site, "Frosty Penguins, Octavia Frosted Winter.
The card design is simple, using a few elements found in the sketch.
Here's the pic for you to check out:
The card measures 5" x 5 1/2" and uses a light blue card stock from a Recollections paper pack as the card base.
To mimic the torn edges in the sketch, I cut a strip of white card stock at 1" adhering it to the card front using my tape runner.
I layered a patterned paper strip measuring 3/4" on top.
I set the card aside to begin work on the image.
First I researched how to color baby penguins and used my C0 markers to fill them in.
I found that their coloring is a mixture of light greys with a little black along the top.
I used my C00, C01, C02, C03, C04, C06, C08 to achieve a realistic look.
I added a white highlight to their eyes and beaks.
With the penguins complete, I moved on to the "Octavia" image.
Here's a rundown of the colors I used to color her in:
-Skin- FS5, Dusky Pink, R20
-Hair- E97, E99, E79
-Coat- R17, R27, E74
-Scarf and Mittens- G46, G28
-Dress- B12, B14
-Hat and Trim- C00, C01, C02, C03
When coloring with my red Copics, I like to use my brown marker to add highlights.
I know that you can find Copics in darker shades of red, but you also run the risk of it bleeding through your image.
For me, I like the warm tone that the brown gives the red and I also find that my colors don't bleed as much when blending.
It's just an option for you to try when using your red markers.
I colored in the background using my B29 and BT3 markers.
I added a highlight to the ground using my B00 marker and shadows around the image using my B14.
To finish the card off, I stamped a few snowflakes in the background using my VersaMark ink and white embossed them.
I also white embossed the sentiment, "Christmas brings out the Kid in us all!"
And voila! Card complete!! :)
I hope you enjoyed this card for today!!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, and peace!! :)
