DDSC #70 - Sketch

Back again - this time with my DT card for Digi Doodle Shop Challenges where we have a lovely, simple sketch for you this week.

My card showcases this gorgeous Geisha Girl image which you can find in the Shop - here.

I did not want to paper piece this image as I feel sometimes it can look a bit flat so I added the floral design on her dress, parasol and the fans myself. The fans have been covered with Glossy Accents and then stuck onto the image. The flowers were a lot larger but I cut them down to fit the card.

and the inside of the card

So what are you waiting for and don't forget, if you use a Digi Doodle Shop image, you get a second entry - how good is that? :0)

Colouring medium - Promarkers and white gel pen

Beautiful card Denise. Lovely colours and image - her dress looks fab. For paper piecing, I've started adding a bit of shading using pencils to avoid that 'flat' look. Lisa x

Christine - Cndn Stamper said...

Love all the detailing on her dress. Somehow, adding my "own" details like that seem very intimidating and yours are beautiful. Thanks for joining us at For Fun Challenges this week!
