Top Tips and a sketch

Good sketchy Morning to you!
I’m Really excited about this weeks challenge 1 it’s a Tipper week and 2 we have a sketch and 3 its my sketch!

It’s the first time I have made a digi sketch so you better come and join in!
The Challenge this week is Use the sketch so its nice and easy! 
So here is the Sketch

We have 3 awesome sponsors this week

and a New Sponsor to Top Tip Tuesday 
Krista has been very kind and gave us a choice of images and I choose this cute image called Frizzy Jynx, She's A Ragamuffin isn't she soooooo cute!
I have used a combination of distress inks and Sakura Stardust pens to colour Frizzy Jynx and did I say she sooo cute? I really had fun colouring her but I have to say once I printed her I started to think about colours I freaked myself a bit with the worry of colouring her hair! Ekkkk!!! I think I did ok….?

Now here comes my TIP:
  Use a white Gel pen to highlight areas on
the image once your image is dry,
You can also add doodling to flowers as I have after colouring them also with Distress inks.

The Flowers are my favourite recycled shoe cardboard and the base flower is a wooden flower which I have painted with acrylic paints and glamour dusted, and a large brad holding everything to the card!!

he papers are Echo Park, Oh and nearly forgot the swirl flourish is a peel off that I have done an about turn on and used bedazzle beads to glam it up!

Here are the challenges I’m joining today…
