Love Bird Sketch Card

I recieved some new rubber from Gina K Designs yesterday.  I think I found my new favorite set to color. It is called Dream Birds, illustrated by Asela Hopkins for Gina K Designs.  I just adore the images in this set and I love the thick lines. The thick lines make it so much easier for me to color with Copics.  I continue to practice shading, blending and matching the right colors together.  I love coloring.  Always have and always will. :o)

So I made my first project with this adorable new set using a sketch from a 5 year old sweetie.  Yes, I said FIVE!!!  Giovana posted a beautiful butterfly card made by her daughter on her blog.  And her daughter drew a sketch to go with it and is asking everyone to play along.  How could I pass that up?  Well, I just had to play.  I love the simple sketch.  It gave me a chance to make a fairly CAS card with several images from the set.  I love how it turned out.  And I hope you do too.

Stamps: Dream Birds from Gina K Designs
Paper: Pure Luxury White & Ocean Mist from Gina K Designs
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic markers
Other: Sakura glaze pen, Buttons and DMC embroidery floss
