Mad for Makers new challenge

Good morning everyone I hope you are all feeling re energised after your weekend and are ready for the week ahead.

This fortnight it is my turn to host the challenge over at Mad for Markers and I have to say when I first heard I had to do this I was quite scared as I had never had to come up with a challenge by myself. I ended up deciding to create a sketch…. Now I  remember a very wise lady telling me, the talented Kellie,  once that when you create a sketch you have to look at it and ask yourself OK how would I use that?  If you struggle to come up with possibilities then you know it is no good. I took this advice on board when I created this sketch, being that it is my first sketch ever, and although it is fairly simple I could imagine lots of possibilities when I looked at the sketch.

Here is my card using the sketch:

and here was my sketch:

I have used the following copics for my card today:
Hair - YG24, YG23 & YG20
Top & hat - R59, R46, R35
Jeans - B97, B95 & B93
Shoes - E79, E77 & E72
Skin - E00, E11, E21, R20 & R11

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges:

Craft us Crazy - Anything Goes
Southern Girls Challenges - Happy Birthday
Totally Gorjuss - Punch or Die
Stamp Something - Something Embellished

Now dont forget for all you copics needs to head over the the store as Sammi has a great range of copics and accessories and some very cute stamps too.

Thanks for joining me today and I hope you will come along and play using my sketch. I cant wait to see how everyone is going to use it.

Until next time Bron xox

  9. Thank you for the sketch and the comments on my blog. I adore your card and am in awe. I am using xpress it blending card I think the reds going over is more to do with my technique or perhaps I will have to wear my glasses when I colour or just take more time and care. Thanks again. hugs Gretchen
