Midnight Madness DT- MMSC101

Its time for a new sketch challenge at Midnight Madness! Here it is...


Enter one style or both this week.

Just have fun and come play with us :)


Isnt it great??!!! It did, however, pose a bit of a challenge for me this week, but I think I made it work. I could not bear to cut up the gorgeous image I had to work with, so I kinda forgot about those two side boxes in the sketch and just made one large image box in the center. I know it is a bit off from the sketch, but I think it still works ok.
I got to use this gorgeous new image, Horse Head, from Priscilla Styles, our fearless leader. I love it, it is just such a beautiful image. I paired the image up with some of the gorgeous K&Company Julliene paper. I wanted to keep this card in neutral tones, and that paper stack has so many to choose from, it was hard to narrow it down!
I colored the image with copics. I used a TON of E tones, but I did not write them down as I was going along, sorry. I was very nervous coloring this, as I have a hard time with animals, ans usually am coloring people. I am very happy with how the coloring came out, eventhough it was outside of my happy little box! I love stepping out of my norm, and challenging myself with something totally different.
Here is the artsy view of my card. I used my Magnolia Doohickey Tilda Lace die for the border strips, and added some cream ribbon to the tops to set them off. I used some Prima Vintage blooms for the flowers, and prima brown pearl and rhinestone swirls which I cut apart and placed for the swirls.
I do hope that you will join us at Midnight Madness for this weeks sketch challenge.
