Pretty parasol

It's new sketch day at Outlawz :D

I'm sponsoring our sketch team for August.  This image I'm using today is Becca you can find her here on Etsy.

I've coloured her with ProMarkers, cut her out with a Spellbinders die and used some antique linen distress ink from Tim Holts on the edges.
Here's our sketch for this week


I've used design papers from Joy Crafts and some black card stock.  The banners were cut using off cuts of papers and a La La Land Die.

Embellishments of pearls, some paper flowers and wooden hearts are my finishing touches.

Hope you like my creation for today - love to see you at the sketch challenge.

I've combined two images for this card image 324 is Alice and image 325 is the White Rabbit


I've created a CAS card to showcase the images.  I've used ProMakers to do this and a little black polychromos to add extra depth to the shading.

All I've added to this one is a little biro to frame the card.

Birthday balloons

Yes here I am again telling you all I'm sponsoring Outlawz Sketch - that's because I'm the sponsor for the whole of August :D

You can find all my images in my shop on Etsy SheepSki Designs - click here

I've used Flump n Tic for my inspiration today, coloured with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.  You should be able to see from this first picture that I've sketched some clouds into the background too.
This is our sketch for today


I've flipped the sketch and instead of using some ribbon I've drawn some more balloons.  These I coloured in pink to match with the theme of the rest of the card - hopefully making the single blue balloon pop!


The edges of the image were treated with some Milled Lavender ink from Tim Holtz before mounting it onto some black card stock.

The birthday sentiment is a Spellbinders die and I've used a couple of black gems

Design paper are from Maja Design.

And that ladies and gents is it :D
Hopefully see you over at the challenge.  AND if you want to call in at my Facebook group click here!

First Steampunk :D

This is the first Steampunk image I've drawn.  I absolutely love Steampunk and I'll hope fully do some more.

I actually started drawing this image back in April then got distracted doing other things.  I finally had chance to finish her at the weekend.  She's called Victoria and you can find her in my shop SheepSki Designs on Etsy - click here!

I've coloured the image and background with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils.



The image comes just as Victoria on her own.  When I was printing her off I thought it would be cool to create my own Steampunk background so I used some Tim Holtz cogs and sketched three huge cogs into the background.




Once I'd finished the colouring I distressed the image, a piece of brown design paper from Lili of the Valley and some black card stock.  Once I'd put the card togehter I sketch a biro border in them added some metal embellishments - Tim Holtz cogs, sprockets etc. of course :D

I've chosen to colour this image in monochromatic blues using ProMarkers to fit in with the them of the challenge.  there's a tiny pop of red on the end of the thermometer and the XO to the right of the image.

Keeping with the blue theme I've kept the card simple just latering up some design paper from Maja Design.
