I made this card using the Mojo Monday Sketch challenge on the Poetic Artistry Blog. The image is from Sarah Kay stamps.
Usually I pick out my paper first and then color the image. But this time I colored first and then went in search of paper to complete the card. I was amazed to find this DP by Heidi Grace that perfectly matched the colors I chose to use. I wanted to use Victorian colors for an Olde World feel.
For the boy, I chose the following:
Hat and coat: G24 Willow and G28 Ocean Green
Pants: E35 Chamois and E37 Sepia
Scarf: R39 Garnet
For the girl, I used these markers:
Hat and coat: R85 Rose Red and R39 Garnet
Skirt and ribbon on hat: G12 Sea Green
Flower on hat: R39 Garnet
Their faces are E00 Skin White and E02 Fruit Pink.
I made the mistake of putting my markers away before writing this blog post, so I am sorry, I don't really remember the rest of the colors that I used. This was a fun sketch to do, I hope it inspires you to create a card of your own.
