Top tip Tuesday Sketch!

Morning all, how are we today?! Well school run underway and thinking what needs to be done for the rest of the day - I cant believe my daughter had 13 days left at school before she breaks up - I swear they are on holiday more than I ever was! 

Well Im here to share with you the challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday this week! Well do we have a treat!? Oh yes! The wonderful Samantha has put together a sketch! 

Now how good does that look! Oh to have that talent! We would like to see what you create from the sketch - I must say I LOVE sketches now, at least they give me some direction! Remember you can use anything you wish to create your project - as long as we can see the original structor supplied! 

We have some FAB sponsors this week! 

They are offering 2 Digital images

Are offering one of their CD's

And our FAB new Sponsor...

(adding the link caused another shopping spree!)

When I found out that we were being sponsored by the wonderful Krista I couldn't believe it, I was so excited when I found out she had opened a shop - let alone sponsoring us too! We were fortunate enough to be given a digi to play with I chose the beautiful Snow White - available from the shop here.

Isn't she beautiful!! I have to say once I got her i did have a panic! I had to try and think back to what the real 'snow while' looked like, then I thought - NO she will be unique! I even tried to add a 'shine' on the apple- it didn't work too well though! The top right corner I have used a small cut out from part of the backing paper that says 'I Love thee'.

Here she is up-close, she was coloured with copics - i was trying to keep them all in a nice order - hence why I have never listed the colours, but that has gone to pot now, so I will start listing colours soon, PROMISE! 

As you can see I added a bit of grey around the white spots on the headband to try and add more definition to it, I also used various shades of red.  She was die cut using my nesties. I did go round the edge of her with a TH DI to add more depth. 

I love this flourish, I have hardly ever used it and now I just have to make sure I have some cut in every colour and ready to go as and when, I used gems on it today to jazz it up a bit.

I have to say after everything taking so long this one bit got me - the flourish fits the nestie shape really well and the colour blended well with the DI i used!
