iSpy Sketches 26


Just a quick one, it's past my bedtime. The new iSpy Sketches Challenge was released today with a sketch based on Therese Calvird's card. I fell in love with the card straight away and I had already seen Danielle Daws' card using the sketch (a gorgeous card), which had me excited about the idea of using my pencils today. In the end I pretty much exactly CASEd Therese's card, just because it was so beautiful, and I wanted to see if I could come anywhere close to the prettiness using my Derwent Inktense pencils. I didn't come close, but it turned out okay anyway. :-)  I definitely need more practice using pencils.
I used Jane's Doodles Pretty Peonies (flower) and PTI Think Big Favorites #16 (sentiment). I stamped the image in versamark, and then drew over it and coloured with Inktense pencils. Card base is PTI Fine Linen, and panel is SU! Soft Suede. Ink is Soft Suede. The string is kitchen string.
I love this sketch. I think I might need to make another card (or five) using it!

See you later! Thanks for stopping by to visit me. :-)

Fun! I like that you've reversed the sketch by putting a darker layer on a lighter cardbase! Clever!

Wonderful job with the pencils. Gorgeous colors in that bloom! That sentiment works so well with it too.
