OWH Sketch #192

Hi all! I finally finished this sketch card. What a busy Sunday! It's 9:15 p.m. but I did it. So here is my version of the sketch. I placed the oval sentiment in the upper right hand corner instead of the bottom left because it just suit my image better. That whole balance in design thing, lol.
192 Sketch

Believe or not I used a winter 6x6 paper pad. It's Blissful Blizzard by Fancy Pants. I wanted to make more of a masculine card so I figured I'd go dark and nuetral with the cardstock. The image is from Lili of the Valley Get Well Bunny ST062 and it comes with the sentiment. Unfortunately, I've had to send out too many of these and my stash was getting low so a get well card it was for this sketch.
For the center strip, I added some May Arts ribbon. I have very little May Arts ribbon. I live 45 minutes from my Local Scrapbooking Store so I don't get there too often; about 2 or 3 times a year. So, I treasure my May Arts ribbon. If anyone can tell me where I can find some on-line to buy by the yard I would appreciate it.  I just love that ribbon. It's so luscious; dare I say yummy!

Here are the Copic markers I used to color in the image. Working on building my stash of markers too. I own about 60 or so now. It's taken me about 2+ years to acrue those. It's slow going but I'm getting there. lol.  I'm definately enjoying a little more freedom with color choice now than when I owned ten! lol.

Very pretty papers to go along with that sweet image. It take a while to build up a stash of markers. They are so expensive. Enjoy your week.

I like the subtle coloring of your rabbit with the greys (they can be hard to color with). Cute, cute - did I say cute card? Thanks for sharing.

Oh Amy, what a sweet image and card! Your mix of papers is wonderful and the colors yummy. Yes, the sentiment where you placed it is perfect! TFS.

Thanks for commenting Linda... I've just bought my first refills too, just 4. Mostly skin tones and that light pink I use for cheeks.

Thanks Jan, The 6x6 paper pads make coordinating the colors soooo easy! Its the best thing I've ever bought for cardmaking and not much paper waste either!
