Friday Sketchers #4

THE SKETCH:

THE RESULT:

This is the first challenge I have taken part in, and I hope it meets the required standard. Everybody seems so good at it, that I am a bit overwhelmed by all the talent out there. But great inspitation I must say. I have never worked from a sketch before, but I enjoyed it so much I'm definately going to do it again. I am very pleased with the result.
I used glitter to highlight the swirly background paper which was a download from http://www.scrapgirls.com/ I thought I would stamp Edwin from Magnolia as the main subject. I normally make pink girly designs, so I thought I would try something different this time. I encorporated the frogs from a Rubbadubbado stamp, as I thought they would go with the whole green boy theme. Hope you like it.

The images were firstly watercoloured using Zig art pens, then given depth by using Twinkling H2O's. Edwins wings were embellished with crystal glitter, to let the subtle colour show through. I then used a single blossom from my new set of Prima Essentials, and glued some tiny seed beads in the centre. I finally highlighted key areas with a Sakura white gell pen.




These are a very small sample of my Prima Essentials blossoms, and this is just one colour blend, I have seven different packs in total. I love them.


Take Care
