Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #114

Happy Friday! Thanks for joining me for another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's fabulous sketch by Taylor:

Here is my card:

Yes! Another easel card!! =) Hope you are not tired of it! The image that I used is Fairy Tabia from Mo's Digital Pencil. Isn't she a beauty? I am in love with her. She somehow looks very magical to me. Mo is such an amazing artist!

If you remember this post, she was on top of the colored stack. I colored her more than 6 months (it's more like 8 months, I think) ago when I just started coloring with Copics and was working with very few(about 50?) markers. I think her skin tone is a bit flat and the shading on the skirt could be better. I do love her wings though! =)

The gorgeous patterned papers are from Memory Box's " enchanted" collection and the sentiment is from PTI's Enjoy the Ride stamp set. I added Glossy Accents to the bubbles and Diamond Stickles to the stars on her outfit. The gems I put under "birthday" are from Hero Arts.

Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:

Your coloring is wonderful - can't belive that's from when you were just starting! Isn't is fun to actually make a card out of an image that's been sitting around for a long time?

She is so beautiful! Love the image and you certainly have done her justice! Love what you did with the new MB paper! Great background for your beuatiful card.

Lisa Hjulberg said...

Yes, I agree... Mo's designs are amazing, and this one is very special. I think the coloring looks great, but did you know you can color over Copics anytime and it will still blend and be just fine? I learned that at Copics Certification training.

I like how you turned Taylor's sketch into an easel card. Too clever!
