Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Time to play along with the MFT sketch this week! If you look at the sketch (at the bottom of my post) it is crying out for a sentiment based card...well....I didn't feel like doing a sentiment based card but I still wanted to play. I laid the sketch on its' side so that I could do an image based card...because I wanted to color :)

I love this little "Christmas Caroler" mainly because I get to play with a radial light source. You will notice in my copic coloring that the objects closest to the candle flame are the lightest in value and as the objects are further from the flame they increase in value (get darker). I took a photo of the marker colors for you to see. The Y21 next to the Y23 is a custom blend marker (1 part Y21 and 1 part blender).
The full list of supplies is at the bottom of my post.

I will point it out...a little oopsie with my R89. I didn't let my background coloring dry before going in with my R89 to do the cast shadow on the shoulder of her dress. As soon as that R89 touched the wet background it wanted to spread! Lesson patient when working with reds...they are volatile!

Another sweet Christmas card to add to my stash :)

Here is the sketch so that you can play along. The details and the list of designer samples you will find on the MFT blog.

I love it when you show the Copic colors used. You did such a fine job with them. Initially I was not interested in the paper dolls and now I have got to HAVE THEM along with everything else I see here. Thanks so much for showing your talent.
