copic color and Friday sketchers challenges


Made this one today start to finish! Sure had a good day! Glad my DH is so understanding. I didn't have two of the colors so had to "mix" them according to what I could see in the color charts online. I am amazed at how easy that was! You know what they say about necessity! I got to use the Martha Stewart edge punch that I love, lots of stickles, my Tilda - she is new to me, Magnolia flower stamps, the new fence I got from Diana ( I buy all my Magnolia stuff from her). You know if its not broken-----. The colors were supposed to be YR 16 apricot - I used yr16 and y17., bg49 which I had, E18 copper - I used e8 & e29.The blue is boo and I made the shoes black. I always use e11 for the skin shading and e51 and e00 for the blending along with r20 for the cheeks. Can't remember what greens but can guarantee you they were yg or look like a yellow green. Hope you like this one. The sketch was a difficult one but it was fun. I embossed the oval behind Tilda, and added some partial stamping to the blank parts. Hugs to you all, Barb F
