Sister Act Challenge #13 & Sketch Saturday Challenge #264

It's my last week of work before a long-awaited vacation, so it's been kind of hectic around here.  I decided to take one thing off of my plate and double-dip this week with this beautiful image from A Day for Daisies.  It's called Two Girls and Mom.  The artist behind A Day for Daisies images is Tammy Siemers Thompson.  I discovered her work a year ago when I was taking an online Copic coloring class from Michelle Houghton from Creative Passion Classes.  The image was a little beyond my skills at the time - all of that hair was overwhelming to me!  I've been practicing with coloring hair enough that I felt ready to tackle it now.  Luckily, I still had Michelle's tutorial to use as a reference for shading and light source.  I'd list my all of my Copic colors, but I went a bit overboard on the mom's hair!  The mom's dress is BG 11, 32, 34, 57.  The older girl's dress is R20,22, 24, 27 and the little girl's dress is R0000, 000, 01.

Join us at Sister Act for our anything goes challenge.  Our sponsors are Digi Darla and Ink and Whimsy 2.

Over at the Sketch Saturday blog, it's Jen's birthday (on June 22nd) .  Her gift to us is a choice of sketches since she started designing!   This week you can choose any sketch from #216 through #263.  There are so many great sketches to choose from.  I looked for a simple sketch (#217) for my card so the image would be its feature.

Hope you will play along with us at Sketch Saturday this week.  Our sponsor is Loves Rubber Stamps.
