PWCO sketch Challenge #36

Happy Monday, Stampers! Here's a nice easy sketch for this week from Paperworks Co. I did not have any coordinating paper to go with this Lime Rickey paper so for the 4 smaller squares I just used the same paper from the background paper. I decided to go with the tennis player for my images this week. She is a fun one to color! Her hair gives you plenty of room to play around with your copic markers (or coloring medium of your choice) without becoming an overwhelming space. I needed to fill in a bit as the card seemed a bit bare so I added the flower and the pearls.

I do like the color orange. I think it is a color that most other stampers shy away from and even some don't like. When all of us gals on the DT were getting to know each other and writing about ourselves Peggy, owner of PWCO, revealed that she does not like orange. Boy, am I going to have fun with that! I have a Dork Sister, Vikki Jo, who is afraid of butterflies. I am sure you can image what the rest of the Dork Sisters send her all of the time: cards with butterflies all over them!

I love copic markers. I notice that when I color with copics no matter how hard I try a bit of color goes outside the image. I have learned how to hide that mistake by cutting out the image. So, that's my tip for today. don't worry so much about coloring outside the line because then you can just cut it out and no one will be the wiser. If you do cut out the image make sure that you take the corresponding marker and touch up the edges to cover up any white areas.

Thanks for looking!

  1. Hi Karen Lynn! Just wanted to pop in & say hi, and let you know that I didn't forget about you on my PWCO DT blog link list - I just misplaced the email that had your link in it. But - you're there now! Cute card, btw - orange, just for Pegs? LOL!

  2. Ha! Funny girl! I bet we can expect to see a lot of orange coming out of your craft room in the near future! :) Cute image, nice job coloring.

  3. I like orange...just don't send any my way!!
    Hey, do you know you can use the copic blender to push the bled color back behind the lines? I do that a lot, a tip I learned from Suzanne Dean's blog.
    Cute image and card, Karen!
