Basic Grey Challenge sketch #1

Hello everyone, hope you're all well and looking forward to the weekend ? My week got off to a good start with the thank you cards i had to make and here's one i made following the sketch over at Basic Grey Challenges to say a big thank you to Lyn for her lovely surprise parcel :) suddenly feeling all Christmassy, lol ;)

I really enjoyed this sketch, shall use it again i think, and thanks to Laura for this image, she's so pretty

All papers are BG Lemonade from The Craft Emporium , image is Faeriesong art stamp...i think, ribbon, flower and button from stash, sentiment is Pink Petticoat tiny tags download, Doodlebug brad. Coloured with copics.

I've a dilemma now, does anyone else who uses copics go through the skin tone colours quick ?...i've used 2 Skin white pens in about 4 months, it's the colour i use for the base tone and to blend but crikey this is ridiculous..i even started using bristol board, which i love, to stop the paper/card from soaking up the ink. So i'm without my essential pen till Tuesday..order in with Cult Pens as i speak, can highly recommend shopping here, free P&P over £10 and the best selection of individual pens...so anyway if my images look as if they've been enjoying some sun over the weekend this is why :(

Have a good weekend all xx


  1. Wow! Absolutely gorgeous Chuck!

    The palest grey is my first copic to run out as I use it a lot. Only a matter of time before my skin colours go!

  18. Hi Katy, great card, I was just thinking before I read your post how lovely you had done the skin and was wondering which copics you had used, I've just ordered some Canson art board to see if its less absorbent.
