Freshly Made Sketches #130

Good Morning Everyone!

Today is another beautiful spring day! The snow out back of my building is almost gone. (Insert happy dance) However, I'm really looking forward to summer and taking a trip up to York, Maine. So for my version of the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #130, I decided to use a more summery theme.

This card is A2 size (4.25x5.5"). The cardstock is from Core'dinations and the pattern paper is from DCWV. I colored the stamp image with Copic markers. The brad and ribbon are items that I've had in my stash. 

Here is the original sketch

My 1st Saturated Canary Card

Good Evening Everyone!

It was a beautiful day here with temperatures over 50 degrees F. This is what we call summ-ah! I can't wait to enjoy the warmth of the sun and plant flowers that call to the butterflies. Speaking of butterflies the card below was created using a digital image from Saturated Canary called "Butterfly Princess."

I used my Copic markers to color this fine maiden.

The dress is colored using YR000, YR00, and YR15
The hair is colored using E18, E29, and E49
The skin is colored using E33 and E37
The lips are colored using R14, and R27
The eyes are colored using G17 and G29
The maiden is shadowed using W0
To add detail to the hair I used an Opaque pen in white from Inkssentials.

The flowers are from Petaloo Velvet Hydrangeas in Orange.
The paper is from Recollections by Michaels.
The cardstock is from Bazzill
The border is cut at 1.25 on the Cricut from the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge.
