Taylored Expressions Challenge #106!

Happy Friday! I have been "out of the loop" for sketch fridays for a few weeks due to holidays so it was fun to get back into the swing of things. This is one of the newest Jolinne releases from My Favorite Things called "Best Friends Always". If you look at the full set the thing she is sitting on is supposed to be a large stone, but I decided today it would be a pillow. It all depends on how you color it:)
Here is a close shot of my coloring with copics. I wanted the deepest color of the pillow to be where she was sitting to make it look like it is sunken in.
Here are all the card deets:
Best Friends Always (Jolinne) by My Favorite Things
Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
White (Neenah)
Garden Variety (Cosmo Cricket)
Copic Markers
Chipboard (Cosmo Cricket)

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Rachel Sztonyk: Gingerbread Gallery
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow

This is darling... Love your dramatic shading. I'm not worthy to carry your markers, Sherrie. I'm glad you are back, girlfriend!

Jami said...

Welcome back Sherrie! We've missed you! Your card is really adorable! Love your coloring (of course!) and the way you used that chipboard vine!

Love it! And I need to copy how you coloured her hair! When I did mine she was a perfect Y21 all over! LOL

Monika/Buzsy said...

Super cute card Sherrie. Love the image and your coloring is always fabulous! Love how you did the greeting. Again, great take on the sketch!

Shana said...

Your card and your coloring are beautiful. I just ordered my first copics. Which colors did you use for her skin?

Sherrie said...

Hi Shana....congrats on your first copic will LOVE them.
I often use E50 for the skin base and shadow with E21 and then blend in R20 for the pink cheeks.
Check out the video tutorial on skin coloring on my side bar if you want a "how to"!

Welcome back Sherrie! Your card is just the sweetest thing! I'm always in awe of your coloring and have to study every shadow and highlight. I hope one day you'll give some tips on background shading. hint hint
