Emmy's Breeze

Today is the third challenge of the new year at Outlawz Sketch team.  We've got Cara sponsoring us and offering the winner a subscription to Through The Craft Room Door magazine.

We had no images to use for this month and could pick what we wanted to use, so I decided to see if I could draw some.
This image here is called Emmy's Breeze.  I created this digital drawing just for this sketch.  I wanted her hair blowing in the breeze with a cascade of flowers floating through the air.

I've coloured the image with Copics, hand cut it so I could leave some strand of hair outside the oval shape and distressed the edges with antique linen ink from Tim Holtz.

For the month of January our design team also got to pick out favourite sketches from last year.  This is the one I picked.

As you can see I've twisted the flower embellishment around and left everything else as the sketch.

The design paper is from Wild Rose Studio, I've used some pink satin ribbon from my stash, some tiny pink and brown flowers to compliment the image from Hobby Craft and two enamel flowers from Diamante Crafts which I seem to have had in my stash forever.

In addition to the fantastic prize from Cara I'm also offering my Fuzzy Bear image as a prize for the January Sketch challenges, everyone who enters will be put into the draw at the end of the month.  He's not for sale yet so if you want a chance to win him you know what to do :D
