Sketch Saturday - Sketch #271
It's another Sketch Saturday challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamps! $25 to use in their online shop may have your name on it. You just have to play along with our sketch this week!
I am using a digi from Sassy Cheryl Stamps. It's called Patience Secret. I think this is the cutest! The sentiment comes with it and the second line is, "for her secret is patience." It's a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson.
I seem to be on a blonde hair coloring kick lately. I used a new color combination on this girl. I started with Y23, Y11, E50 and then added some E33. I like to see contrast rather than blended hair, so the E33 helped bring in some darker tones.
This sketch was a tricky one for me! I had to draw the shape. My years as a first grade teacher came in handy. I remembered our container of pattern blocks and that the hexagon can be made with 6 triangles, so all I had to do was create the right sized triangle. Don't look too closely though, because all of my sides aren't even.
Since you aren't looking too closely - I'd be grateful if you didn't notice the bleeding around the hair ribbon from my Copics. I tried to push the ink with my colorless blender, but I am using Walmart cardstock and it's trickier to do. I promise you don't notice it much on the card. (Darn that camera eye!)
I pulled our my V00 for shading on her face because her shirt any bow use violets. The other colors I used were E000, E00, E11 & R20. The grass is an assortment of YG Copics -YG67 is the darkest.
Have fun with the sketch; I can't wait to see your creations!
