My Heart


 Welcome to the Wednesday MFT sketch challenge. If you want to see the sketch you can scroll to the bottom of this post. I took a very clean and simple approach to this sketch using some darling new Clementine papers from Cosmo Cricket.

The image I used is "love you with all my heart" from the Pure Innocence collection at MFT!
A little peek at the inside where I continued with the vertical format that is on the front.

Below are some step by step photos of the copic marker coloring process. My light source is coming from the upper right of my image.
 Skin tones....I stayed fairly light with my skin tones as the whole card has a light feel to it.
 The dress, shoes and hair clip. I did a cast shadow of the heart...you will notice later on that I looked at my shadows again and decided to lengthen it.
 Here is the heart....I used the R05 very sparingly as it is quite vibrant and high in value.
 The hair....quite simple to suit the image.
 I only used the (half strength) Y21 on the right of the image as that is where my light source is. I added the R11 to the left of the image for some shadowing. My Y21 is a custom blend of half blender solution and half Y21 refill. I find this mix easier to fade away to white.

So here is the sketch! If you want to play along be sure to enter the keyword "MFTWSC37" to your post on Splitcoast Stampers. The forum for the chatter on this sketch can be found HERE.

Hi Sherrie,
Just wanted to say thanks for the fabulous course on Saturday in Ottawa! I really enjoyed it. The material was really good, but more than that, your knowledgeable professionalism and constructive feedback really brought the whole experience to the next level. It was a wonderful experience and really helped me grow in my Copic technique. Thank you!
