I am the sketch designer. The first sketch is simple, which allows you to give it your creative twist.
|Stick It Down - January Card Sketch
I used an image from the Etsy shop, All Dressed Up. This is one of the Wear with Style girls from set 1. While you are checking out the darling images from All Dressed Up, take a look at their Challenge Blog too!
I love challenging myself in my coloring. For a while, I really concentrated on hair. The more I have practiced, the easier it has become. On this image, I focused my attention on creating folds in her dress rather than simply shading the skirt. I spent some time on You Tube watching videos about coloring folds. As I began to try it for myself, it took four or five tries before I could see where the shading and highlights needed to go. I felt satisfied with this one. The background paper was on sale at a local craft shop. I think the pattern and color combination is a fabulous jumping off point for this stylish girl.
I hope you will play along with the Stick It Down sketch this month. I will be visiting the blog of each card that is uploaded. I can't wait to see what you do with the sketch!
