MTSC19 - Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge




Ladies, don't you just love this sketch? This is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge MTSC19. I have so much fun with Mercy's sketches. I like lots of layers on my cards and so does she. How about giving her challenge a try and see what you can come up with?

I can't seem to get away from this little snowman stamp from the set Toasty Snowman from Darcie's. I think he is adorable and so much fun to color. The sketch is for a normal size card (4-1/4 x 5-1/2) but I made it into a 5x5 square card to better fit my image. The designer paper is from SU and called Ski Slope. It's my favorite Christmas paper this year. I love the colors they put in it. I colored the main image with Copics. I don't have all the Copic markers to match the SU cardstock and ink but I can usually take 2 or 3 and mix them to come up with a color that is very close. That's one good thing about Copics, the more you color an image the prettier it gets. No smeared ink no matter how many layers you color one image.

Thanks for coming by to check me out and have a great Thanksgiving week.
