Sketch Saturday #341

Good morning!  Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is off to a great start!  It is pouring down rain here and it's supposed to be like this all weekend.  It's guess it's another weekend for indoor activities. Before getting on with my day, I am here with my DT post for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge.  We are sponsored by Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the prize is a £10 gift certificate for the Bunny Zoe's Crafts shop.

Here is this week's sketch, designed by Debra:

And here is my card:

My card base and mats are SU Gumball Green and the patterned papers are from the Recollections Bright Christmas 6x6 pad.  I created the fun Winter scene by merging two digis from Make it Crafty: Jasmine Hot Chocolate and Winter Seat.  I printed the merged image on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I airbrushed the sky with Copic B12.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I didn't add any more embellishments so the scene was the main focus.

Here is a close-up of the scene:

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair: E50, E43, E57
Wood: E31, E35, E57, E79
Green: YG01, YG03, YG25, YG17, YG67
Red: R22, R35, R37, R46, R59
Blue in Outfit: B91, B93, B95, B97
Snow: C1, B0000, BV0000, YR30
Sky: B12

  1. Wow, Carla, this is absolutely fantastic! The coloring is fabulous and of course the backgrounds papers are perfection! I love that you off the embellishments since this projecct stands quite well on its own. You merged the two images beautifully. Thanks so much for playing our "Snowflake" challenge this week here at 613 Avenue Create!

  2. Gorgeous card and I've never merged two digi's together, so I'll have to read up on doing that! Your coloring is fantastic as usual. This card would be perfect for our Winter Challenge we've got going on right now at the Hambo Hoedown. Enter it there for a chance to win some free digi's.
